My general impression of the breed was, I felt, heads and movement had improved. Although in some of the males tail carriage has to be looked at, also dirty teeth, once again the males were at fault. Temperaments were fine.
1 Todhunter &Robinson's Millbelle Young Gun. 7 and a half month old liver, nice head with good reach of neck, topline, tail carriage and movement were ok.
Junior Dog(5, 1)
1 Alexander's Offordale Chevalier. Black spotted dog, good topline and rear angulation, movement was good, well presented, at 13 months, has time on his side, quite a nice dog
. 2 Johnson's Tynevale The Tease. Ran winner close, good head and angulation, moved well, topline not quite as good as first but lots to like, overall a nice dog.
3 Barrett's Kirkam Apollo.
1 Barrett's Kirkam Apollo. Placed third in previous class. Good head, nice expression, shade light in bone, nicely spotted, movement was ok, not a bad dog.
