OPEN DOG (9 entries, 1 absent)
Liked these three very much indeed. The three of them stood out in the class quite a bit. There was quite a variation in size and shape, muscle content and toplines, but these three I was very pleased with indeed. Nice tight feet on all three, good fronts, good depth of chest, nice strong toplines and turn of stifle, nice dark eyes on all three. Hard job to separate them into one, two and three. Three very nice dogs.
