Coventry and District Canine Society

Judge: Corinna Diamond

My BOB today and was delighted to find out later he was awarded 4th in the working group. Dog aged three years with complete and correct dentition and two fully descended testicles. This dog was not my immediate choice as the class winner as he is not the most masculine in size or substance however he is perfectly balanced and in proportion with no single exaggeration and his many breed qualities could not be denied. He is certainly fit for function and his energy was boundless, this dog has real endurance. Very much a real show man, biddable and so eager to please, totally in tune with his young handler, they make an excellent team and were a joy to judge. A medium size dog with not the strongest of heads, nevertheless the proportions are correct. Correct moderate wrinkle forms when attentive and he has a lovely calm gaze. Medium dark eye, correct almond shape and small pendant ears held close to cheeks. Muscular neck, free from throatiness flowing into good shoulders, this dog has adequate bone and rear angulation. Feet could be tighter. Correct tail set and tail in proportion to body. Tan slightly sooty in places. What really impressed me was his harmonious movement, so effortless and un restricted. Holds his top line well on the move and on the stand settles into a great clean shape. Such a good natured dog shown in very fit and lean condition.

Dark almond shaped eyes. Well set ears. Straight front, broad chest. Strong, well arched neck and nape, leading into shoulders. 50/50 height ratio. Good angles fore and aft, and correct pastern angles. All feet facing forward. Strong back, and level top line, held on the move. Nice croup length and good width of thigh. Good tail length. Maybe a tad high in tail set, but this youngster is always trying to please his handler, so tail will appear to be rising. Moves with purpose, reach and drive. RESERVE BEST OF BREED.
