Judge Info - Lucio Medrano

Showdog.com Judge Since Friday, November 30, 2007
Retirement Announced 5/31/2010

Shows a slight bias toward dogs over bitches. Not very political. Low level of breed bias. Thinks dogs should be compared to how good they are vs the rest of their breed rather than overall quality vs all dogs.
