Solid upstanding dog with loads of presence in the ring. Refined but masculine head with correct eye shape and colour giving that endearing expression. Correct proportion of skull to muzzle and just the right amount of stop with required chiselling. Lovely neck and shoulder placement. Deep chest. Good width of thigh and short hocks which aids his flowing movement. Just loved him. CC
