Manchester Dog Show Society

Breed: Fox Terrier (Wire)

A pleasing entry with quite a few absent on the day. I was struck by the number not in full coat, but I guess exhibitors are aiming for them to be spot on in March.

Puppy D (2,1)

1st: 1569 ENGLAND Mrs L Ashleyheath Nemesia Fire

He has a pleasing outline. Lengthy head, well set ears. Super eye and expression. Lengthy neck with well laid shoulder. Stands on good legs and feet. Level in topline. Could be slightly better ribbed back. Well set tail. Moderate hind angulation with low hocks. Could be better in hind action, parallel in front. In his undercoat, but furnishings harsh.

Junior D (2,1)

1st: 1557 ADSHEAD Mr C T & Miss L J Shoalhill Too Hot To Handle

Smart and showy d. Lengthy and clean head.slight stop, strong jaws. Super eye and expression. Lengthy neck that flows into his shoulders. Good depth of chest. Short loin.
