Basset Fauve De Bretagne

Thank you to all who entered under me, I very much enjoyed my time with your dogs.

Puppy Dog/Bitch (1;0) 1st Richmond’s Hibeck Paddington Bear; Good shoulder construction and lovely head shape with prominent occiput and moderately arched dome. Good topline held on move. Maybe a little straighter in stifle than ideal. BPIB.

Special Beginners Dog/Bitch 1st Robinson’s Karezig Miss Zizzy; Correct eyes and ears, nice deep chest, level topline held well on the move.

Post Graduate Dog/Bitch 1st Turton’s Shiroblam Bourdaffy; Good head with correct dome, eyes, ears and bite. Nice short muscular neck leading to clean shoulders, level topline held on the move and good tailset. Sound coming and going. BB. 2nd Allenby’s Rangali Tinkerbell; Nice head of correct shape. Well muscled bitch who moved beautifully for her young handler. Unfortunately she was dropping her topline while stacked today.

Open Dog/bitch 1st Allenby’s Rangali Tigger; What a character! This boy is full of mischief which makes assessing him a challenge, but its worth persevering. In the moments that this boy is still he cuts a stunning silhouette. Correct head with good eyes and ears, well defined occipital point, correct bite and lovely wide nostrils. He has a short muscular neck, correct shoulders, good depth of chest and great angulation. On the move (which he clearly loves), he comes into his own with a jolly gait that takes him effortlessly around the ring. Patiently handled despite his naughtiness. BD & BOB. 2nd Turton’s Whistlewood’s Arran Pilot For Shiroblam; Another nice head with correct features. Shoulders not as laid back as 1 but a good depth of chest and a nice level topline. Moved out beautifully for his handler with a characteristic “lively” gait which demonstrated both reach and drive. RBD.
