William F. Potter, II

William F. Potter with Irish WolfhoundI started showing purebred dogs in 1968 after acquiring my first Irish Wolfhound as a college graduation present from my wife Donna. After I showed her to her championship, I bred and showed IWs, always owner handled, for the next 10 years.  For the next 30 years I limited my involvement in IWs to occasionally co-owning them with friends. I became active with Smooth Fox Terriers in 1976. As a breeder-owner-handler of SFTs I have been responsible for a number of Group and Specialty winning exhibits.

I was a founding member of the Locust Grove Irish Wolfhound Association and the Sight Hound Club of St Louis in the early 1970s. and have served both the American Fox Terrier Club and Mississippi Valley Kennel Club as president, secretary, governor, and show chair.

I have been an AKC judge since 1990 and am approved to judge all Hounds and Terriers. I have judged All-Breed Shows, Specialties, and Supported entries throughout the United States, as well as, Europe, China, & Australia. Included in the Specialties where the Irish Wolfhound Club of New South Wales (Australia) and the Irish Wolfhound Association of the Delaware Valley.
