STAFFORDSHIRE BULL JUDGE BATH 21

I would like to say thank you to the officers and committee of Bath Canine Society for giving me the
pleasure and honour to judge the Staffordshire Bull Terriers at their 2021 Championship Show.
I had an extremely enjoyable day, and the hospitality was second to none. I would like to thank my
steward who assisted the smooth running of the ring with me. Thank you to the exhibitors for
entering and accepting my decisions in good spirit. Thank you.

Black Brindle just over a year old. Great head with pronounced cheek muscles and distinct stop. Neat
ears and correct bite would have preferred a slightly darker eye. Good neck and shoulder placement

2nd: MEMBURY, Mrs T & MEMBURY, Mr M Mitzstaff Fist of Fury
Another nice Black Brindle dog but needs time to understand his craft in the showring. A really good
shape to his head with good proportions, small ears which gave him the correct expression. Lovely
dark eyes with correct shape and correct bite. Clean muscular neck widening gradually to the
shoulder with a straight front. A good depth of brisket and enough rib. Well-muscled rear with good

laid back shoulder placement and a straight front with nice tight feet. Good depth of brisket, enough
rib and short coupled. Muscled and defined hindquarters, good angulation and bend of stifle giving

easy decision.
