HASSELGREN, Birgitta Fjärdhundra,
FCI:Pinscher and Schnauzer - Molossoid Breeds - Swiss Mountain and Cattle Dogs, Terriers, Companion and Toy Dogs
Birgitta has been in dogs since she was a teenager. Her first dogs were a West Highland and a Scottish terrier. Westie's became her main interest and she still breeds and shows Westie's, under the prefix Tweed, today together with one of her daughters. Birgitta has bred over eighty champions and has exported dogs all over the world. Two years ago they had five new International Champions in five different countries. Scotties are also close to her heart and Birgitta has always had one Scottie. For many years she was very connected with the breed. In civil life she is a nurse and has a family of four children. She started judging in 1976 first with Terriers, but now also dogs in FCI groups 2, 6 and 9. She has judged in about twenty five countries, in Scandinavia, many European countries, United States, Australia and New Zealand. In my own breed I have judged Championship shows in Great Britain six times over the years, including Crufts as the first foreign judge for West Highlands. Has judged at five World Shows.
