SH CH Fayken I am Legend J.W. - (34 CC's, 31 Reserve CC's, Multiple Pastoral Group Placings, Multiple BISS, JUnior Warrant, Top Border Collie Puppy 2012, Border Collie Of The Year Contest winner 2012 & 2014, Top Border Collie 2013, Dog World top Border Collie 2015 and 2016)

Elvis was born on the 1st August 2011. He is a son of Sh Ch Sashdan Smokin Joe (Smokey) and his mother is a Sh Ch Tonkory Palmerston at Fayken (Taz) daughter, Sh Ch Sankenali Carolina at Fayken (Tippsy). This was Tippsy's second and final litter. From this litter I have also kept Fayken Indecent Proposal (Demi). To say I am excited about the prospects of them both would be an understatement.

Elvis has had an amazing start to his show career winning the puppy dog class at his very first show and then a day later winning Best Minor Puppy dog at the Border Collie Club of GB Championship Show 2012 under breed specialist judge Kathie Kinton (Kinaway). Elvis quickly followed this success with Best Puppy in Show and Reserve Best Dog at the West of England Border Collie Club Show (Trish Hartfield - Moshanta) and two further Minor Puppy Dog class wins at the Southern Border Collie Club (Rachel Spencer) and the Working & Pastoral Association of Wales (Mr Peter Bailey) Championship Shows. At just 9 months of age at the SKC Championship Dog show judge Steve Atkinson awarded Elvis the Puppy dog class, Reserve Dog CC and Best Puppy in Breed qualifying Elvis for the KC Stud Book whilst still a puppy. At the East of England Championship Show Elvis again won the puppy dog class and best puppy dog. Despite attending a limited number of shows Elvis completed his puppy career as top border collie puppy (todate). As a Junior Dog Elvis has continued his winning, claiming a further three Reserve CC's before the age of 15 months.

At 24 months of age Elvis has now accumulated 2 CC's & 10 Reserve CC's as well as the Border Collie of the Year Contest winner 2013, Top Border Collie Puppy 2012 (Our Dogs & Border Collie Club of GB competitions). Elvis was also runner-up top male dog 2012 - quite an achievement considering he was a puppy for the most part of 2012.

Elvis gains his champion title on the same day his litter sister Demi gains hers! Drifield Ch Show 19th September 2013, breed specialist Annette Walters awards Elvis his crowning 3rd CC.

In 2014 Elvis has continued to achieve success in the show ring and his first progeny have won extensively both in the UK and abroad.

Elvis is at limited stud to bitches where I seek a puppy in return. To-date Elvis has sired 4 litters. In the first litter (now 2 years old) already one male is a UK show champion with 4 CC's, two of the bitches are champions and the other bitch has won 2 CC's including winning the pastoral group.

A litter is planned from Elvis autumn of 2016
