1st: 8857 LAWLESS Mr & Mrs P & J & Miss K Ch & Ir Ch Revloch Figo

This is a most impressive dog that, for me typifies the breed. He has all important Belgian Shepard shape when viewed from a distance. When he walked in to the ring, I went wow. His head has the correct parallel plains, well chiselled face. He has a good reach of neck, and that characteristic head carriage. He has a most appealing expression and was continually looking around in an alert and attentive way. He has darkly pigmented lips and nose, moderately angulated, well balanced square construction. He has the classic deep chest and long rib, with short loin. Correct croup , square and at the right angle to maintain that level top line at all times. When he moves it is strong, flowing and faultless, giving the impression of endurance. I was pleased to see that his side gate was perfect with no hint of overreaching, when viewed from the front and rear true and straight. What sealed the deal for me was his very nice character, kind, gentle and approachable. Very pleased to judge him and award him Dog CC and Best of Breed
