Judge Info - Terry Lopez

Showdog.com Judge Since Friday, July 31, 2009
Retirement Announced 9/30/2009

Shows a slight bias toward dogs over bitches. Has a tendency to use dogs handled by certain handlers but isn't overt in it. Moderate 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.
