Nearly 8 month old S/W dog, Lovely clean wedged head with the correct amount of stop, Nice eye and neat ears to complete his wonderful expression. Good reach of neck, Correct width of chest allowing plenty of heart room, Correct angulation to both the front and rear which allowed this young dog to power round the ring with ease.
