Interesting entry to judge. I thought type was rather even, even if most were shorter in leg than my interpretation of the standard. I was shocked at how many undershot Sussex were shown, mainly amongst the males – please be aware of this for future matings. I understand 2 gained their JW on the new system – well done Puppy D (2) 1ST EALD VILLAGE POACHER FOR SHUVICK (MRS S J WAY) Really typy pup with a lot of promise. He has a good head. Medium neck.
