âMidnightâ was sold locally as a pet at 8 weeks old. Unfortunately this home did not work out well and having discovered that he was being badly treated, we took him back at around 18 months old. At this time, having been badly beaten, he was wary of men.
He spent a number of weeks accompanying Ronnie to work and being socialised with all the men he worked with. Having re-gained some of his trust and confidence, he went to live with Yvonne and Derek Horrocks at Green Meadows in Chalfont St Giles which really brought him back out of his shell.
Although he was never shown, he was used very successfully at stud producing three title holders from three different bitches.
We were horrified to learn at the beginning of 2009 that he was implicated in producing cases of late onset PRA.
The statementÂ issued by Yvonne Horrocks and I, that was published in DOG WORLD, can be read by following the link above.
At the time that this matter arose, Midnight was 12 years old and had no problems with his sight. He died soon after the report was received.
