Owner's Comments: Dandy was the sixth known Tervuren imported for breeding and showing in the US. In personality he was very outgoing, sweet and loving. He was owned and shown by three different owners, Marian Glover, Oscar Leu and Rev T E Badger. He became known among the judges and spectators as he almost always represented the Breed in Group when he entered in a show.
Dandy produced 15 US champions as well as two Canadian and two Mexican champions. He captured 28 Best of Breed against competition in the early days of showing Tervuren in this country. He was the first BAR recipient for offspring winning in both conformation and obedience showing. His breed type, color and temperament can be found in several succeeding generations from him.

Dandy and Dolly du Clos St Jacques were the next imports, in 1955. Dolly was a small bitch, considered unexceptional by Rudy. In an interview in 1971, he said "She was a sweet dog - no real objectionable features, but I didn't show her. She never has very robust health". Dandy went to Marian Glover in Oregon in 1956. He was shown nine times as a class dog, finishing his championship in June of 1960 with three majors. Shortly before that, in March, he was sold to Oscar and Evelyn Leu of the Casa del Rio kennel in New Mexico. In 1962 he was purchased by Thomas Badger in California. Dandy was shown 47 times and earned the BOB ribbon a total of 42 times. As a special, he was defeated only once, by his son Ch Gironde de Lafayette. His final BOB was won when he was almost ten years old, just a few months before his death in July of 1965.
Dandy was the first male to earn the ABTC BAR (Breeders Achievement Record) award. He sired 19 champion offspring and 40 champion grand offspring. The BS by Andrews & Cloutt
