Merrilyn Feelin Groovey


(Dob 18th March 2010)

(Ch Fallowfield Barney x Davricard Greta at Merrilyn)

Ellie is a typical beagle happy lively and very playful! We were delighted with her first show results at the age of 6 months and 1 week and she has continued to do well in the show ring! Ellie was the first of our home bred beagles with the Merrilyn Kennel Name to have qualified for Crufts!! She had her first litter in September 2012 and gave us our beautiful Domino. Ellie has tested clear of MLS and NCCD.
