Mrs. Charlotte Patterson

Toy Group Judge

Location: Destin, FL

Charlotte Patterson has enjoyed nearly five decades in the sport of purebred dogs as an owner/breeder/handler and now in her role as an AKC-licensed judge. Her first purebred dog was a Toy Poodle. She acquired her first Pug in 1968. Her Pugs — under the Ivanwold prefix — are known throughout the dog world. Her breeding program has spread to be included in the pedigree of many top show dogs.

Mrs. Patterson continues to breed and show in the Bred-By Exhibitor class. A recent addition to her home is a Clumber Spaniel puppy. She was first approved to judge in 1989 and now judges the Sporting, Terrier, Toy and Non-Sporting groups, Best In Show and Junior Showmanship. This is Mrs. Patterson’s sixth assignment at Westminster.
