Driffield Championship Dog Show

Breed: Dachshund (Miniature Long Haired)

 Report for Driffield miniature long haired dachshund Mandy dance judge.

I found that many exhibits were too thin. Also many were too long in the body, and did not fulfil the 1 to 2 balance ratio required. Worryingly I found several who were worried. I feel the overall quality is lacking.

Minor puppy dog two entries. 

First best puppy dog. Oxley. 

Lokmadi Rio Bravo at Dinkidax.

Cream baby with a good pigment. Head good, almond Eye, Good height to length ratio.
