Parson Russell Terriers
1 Broadberry’s Mindlen Magnum at Ratscallion, an outstanding puppy with a lovely head, an exceptional topline & tailset. Good narrow front, well angulated rear, super harsh coat. Moved very well. RCC & BP.
1 Newport’s Digaden Pitch Perfect, another lovely puppy with a good head & expression, narrow front, correct feet, harsh coat. Good angulation behind, giving good movement.
1 D Pitch Perfect;
2 Davies & Davies-Wood’s Pacolito Protostar, good head, harsh coat. Lacking confidence.
1 King’s Bramarno Prince Of Bohemia for Riosset, correct bite & strong muzzle. Narrow front, well angulated rear. Moved OK; 2 Aspell & Dixon’s Logierait Loki, pleasing head with good mouth. Too straight in shoulder for my taste.
1 Yerbury’s Beauforts Charles James, strong workmanlike head with correct bite. Harsh weatherproof coat, good topline & tailset. Plenty of bone. Well shown. CC;
2 Sturdy’s Alncroft Imperial, has a good coat & rearend, could do with a bit more strength in head. Not the quality of shoulder & movement of 1.
