Judge Info - Joseph Flanagan

Showdog.com Judge Since Thursday, January 31, 2013
Retirement Announced 2/28/2013

Doesn't like using the same breeds that win every other show for BIS. Not very political. Moderate level of breed bias. Thinks a dog needs to earn its championship before it should even be considered for best of breed.
