Birmingham National Working Puppy Group

Always extra interesting to judge puppies and see the next generation of stars. This group contains many slow maturing, big breeds, and as such some puppies looked very raw and unready and not quite together – just as they should. Included in my shortlist were the ultra smart Dobermann and very promising Great Swiss, who looked tired on the final run. 1st : 8342 DRING Mr & Mrs S & D Yelsek The One And Only - PORTUGUESE WATER DOG - Dog Super pup of ideal proportions and an excellent mover. He has a v good head of the correct proportions. Correct neck. Strong front. Well bodied and a good rear. Think he has great potential. 2nd : 7981 ANSELL Mrs A L & Mr S Justlazare Poison Ivy (ai) - DOGUE DE BORDEAUX - Bitch Totally feminine, but strong and athletic. She has a lovely head. Well made, correct topline and typical in every way. 3rd : 7624 ELLIS Ms S Chayo Suspicious Minds - ALASKAN MALAMUTE - Dog V mature looking d, masc all through. He is strong and powerful, moved v well and I liked his mobile tail. 4th : 7736 LAMBERT, Mrs F & EASTHAM, Mrs M & CRAIG Mr M Avice Reach For The Sky With Bouvpilot - BOUVIER DES FLANDRES – Bitch Fem b, v well presented. Correct neck and a v good front. Firm in topline and uses her rear so well.
