Veteran Working Group

A lovely strong group with some wonderful mature exhibits. I shortlisted six and these were: Alaskan Malamute, Boxer, Canadian Eskimo Dog, Dobermann, Great Dane and the Newfoundland. 

 After watching move just once more I awarded the top spot to Ingrams Dobermann Ch. Tronjhelm Belladonna from Jojavik in super condition with lovely clean feminine head, strong neck, good shoulders flowing into slightly sloping topline, well muscled loin and thighs with well balanced angulation. Very free moving with drive, reach and powerful stride.

 3rd. Baxter/Morris Newfoundland Ch. Albanywater Sea Dancer at Davistell D he has a good broad masculine head, short square muzzle. Strong neck, broad back and strong loin. Deep chest well ribbed. Good large feet and well balanced so he covered the ground easily with correct slightly turned in toes coming towards and drive going away.
