Breed Judge D Desmond (Elitebull)

Puppy (1, 0 abs)
1st Owens, Tagstane Bobby McGee
Black Brindle Bitch. Very much a baby but her quality shone through. Skull/muzzle of correct proportions. Neat ears, dark eyes and clean lipped. Correct bite with clean white teeth. When prompted she used her ears well which enhanced her very pretty, feminine expression. Compact, short coupled body. Good front with, nice bone and tidy feet. Enough rib for her age and level topline, standing and on the move. Her backend developing well and angulation correct. Good tail set and carried well. Handled very well, she moved nicely when settled. Later found out that this was her first show, she done very well indeed and I am sure she will gain confidence and do very well in the future.
Best Puppy in Breed, AV Terrier Minor Puppy G1 and Terrier Special Puppy Group 2. Congratulations!

Junior (1, 0 abs)
1st Campbell & Irvineâ s, Diamondstaff Jack N Black
Black Brindle/white Dog. Top sized dog, but well balanced. Skull of correct proportions, dark eye and clean-lipped with correct bite. Neat ears, which he used well enhancing his keen expression which was there every time I looked at him; a great advantage for any dog. Good front and tidy feet. A longer cast body, but in good condition for his age. Correct tail placement and carriage. Level topline which was held on the move. Moved and handled well.

Post Graduate
1st Donaldâ s, Vanayres Gambler
Dark Brindle/White Dog. A lovely balanced dog that caught my eye. Skull/muzzle of correct proportions, round, dark eye and correct scissor bite with white clean teeth. Neat ears, which, when he used them enhanced his expression well. Correct length of neck leading to well laid shoulders, good straight, well boned front, finished with tidy feet. Short coupled body with enough rib, level topline and well muscled hind quarters. Good anglulation and definition to inner and outer thighs. Correct tail set and carriage. Shown in good condition. Moved well, when moved at the correct pace. The handler needs to be more definite in her intent to move forward with the dog, look ahead and lead him off ... in turn he will use his well balanced body to reach, drive and follow. Seen glimpses of this from him and indeed, when in the group his handler moved with more conviction and it showed well. I wish you well with this young dog, Congratulations!
