Judge Info - Thomas Moore
Showdog.com Judge Since Monday, January 31, 2011
Retirement Announced 10/31/2013
Shows a slight bias toward bitches over dogs. Has a tendency to use dogs handled by certain handlers but isn't overt in it. Doesn't show a breed bias at all. Thinks dogs should be compared to how good they are vs the rest of their breed rather than overall quality vs all dogs.
