Balanced and strong, shown in excellent coat and condition, masculine head with good expression, clean eye, correct bite, very well boned, good reach of neck, well-proportioned body of good depth, strong hindquarters, in excellent muscle tone, powered around the ring effortlessly. Very well handled.

a lot to like about this dog, nice head and expression, good eyes, shoulders well-constructed, well sprung ribs, level topline with good tailset, a little too keen on move, perhaps missing his normal handler.
