    Judge: Mrs H Morss (UK).
    Critique “This puppy is at his best on the move. Carried himself around a very large ring with confidence, to assess him standing seemed just too much to ask for!! He looks a little high over the quarters, but this is so typical for his age, he felt good to the hands and was even better on the eye, excellent head carriage for one so young, great tail carriage. He shows a great deal of promise."
