1stMaursett Mathos - Taylor
Well what a fabulous dog to start ones day judging, at 13 months old, he is a mature young man who is so full of quality and excellent breed type. He is extremely well balanced throughout, super masculine head with no exaggeration, clean eyes and fabulous expression. Strong powerful neck, good lay of shoulder, strong topline, and well set tail. Strong hindquarters with well let down hocks, he was presented in excellent coat and healthy condition. He really comes into his own on the move covering the ground with an effortless stride with excellent reach and drive and he is so true both coming and going.
2ndVanitonia The Force Awakens - Gardner & Crocker
Another impressive youngster who has substance and oozes breed type, masculine all through but without exaggeration, he has a fabulous head, clean eyes, correct bite, square muzzle and quite a mischievous expression. Excellent angulation fore and aft, strong bone and tight feet, strong topline which he holds on the move, extremely well muscled throughout. He was a little too enthusiastic on the move to begin with but once he got into his stride, he moved with reach and drive covering the ground effortlessly.
