RHODESAN RIDGEBACKS. SKC 20TH MAY 2018 JUDGE VIVIEN PHILLIPS

I ENJOYED MY JUDGING APPOINTMENT AND THANK EVERYONE FOR THEIR ENTRY AND THEIR SPORTING ACCEPTANCE OF MY PLACINGS. THE BREED ON THE WHOLE HAS SOME GOOD TYPE DOGS BUT THERE IS STILL A PROBLEM WITH CONSTRUCTION PARTICULARLY IN SHOULDERS AND DEPTH OF BRISKET. EYES IN SOME EXHIBITS WERE RATHER LIGHT GIVING SOME DOGS A STARING EXPRESSION. NO INCORRECT RIDGES OR CROWNS.

PUPPY DOG (2) 1ABS. SALMON’S DIAMONDRIDGE LEGEND AT LOBENGULA. STANDING ALONE 7 MONTH OLD. PLEASING HEAD WITH SUFFFICIENT UNDERJAW. STRAIGHT FRONT WITH PLENTY OF BONE. GOOD NECK AND SHOULDERS. FEET COULD BE TIGHTER AND PASTERNS NEED TO STRENGTHEN... TOPLINE NEEDS TO TIGHTEN UP AS HE IS STANDING A BIT HIGH IN THE REAR. BUT HE IS AT THAT STAGE. HE MOVED VERY FREELY STILL LOOSE IN FRONT. HE IS A PROMISING PUPPY OF GOOD SIZE AND OUTLINE.
