DOBERMANNS

Puppy (3,1)

1st Jones’ KORIFEY DARK KNIGHT. Showy 10mths bl/r male with a super clean and flowing shape, presented in excellent hard condition. Long, masculine and elegant head giving the correct elongated blunt wedge. Parallel planes, dark eyes and neat well-set ears combine to give that typical expression. Long lean neck flows into a well-set compact body, with depth to brisket, tight elbows, well-developed forechest and the best of fronts. Perfectly straight topline is matched by a clean underline, with a well-filled croup and good tailset. Balanced and correct angulation, strong hocks and a well-muscled rear gave super fluid and powerful movement, with great extension and drive and precise footfall. Expertly handled to BOB and BPIB, and delighted to see him shortlisted to the final 4 for BIS, and then take BPIS. 

2nd Mycroft’s SANT KREAL JEWEL FOR SUPETA (IMP), 6mths bitch with the darkest of brown coats. Compact and square outline with excellent straight topline into a good croup and tailset. Feminine head with perfectly parallel planes and a lovely cheeky expression. Good front with straight legs down to tight feet and elbows lying close, with balanced angulation front and rear. Once settled her movement was accurate with lots of drive, just needs to tighten up with maturity. RBPIB.

Junior (1,0)

1st Robertson’s COCKNEYOKA FOOL’S GOLD. 15mths br/r bitch, very feminine and well-muscled, although would like a little more of her all through. Good length to head, with well-placed eyes and correct earset giving a lively expression. Legs are straight and parallel, front ok, with well-laid shoulder and good length of upper arm which could have more return. Strong straight topline held firm on the move and standing. Unfortunately movement was erratic today and difficult to assess properly.

Open (4,0)

1st Brown & Mycroft’s SUPETA’S BACKSTABBER. Square and short-coupled 15mths bl/r male, very masculine with ample substance and bone. Strong head, well-proportioned with good depth to muzzle and plenty of underjaw. Almond shaped medium brown eyes give excellent arrogant expression, framed by well-set ears. Topline is short, strong and straight, flowing into well-filled croup and correct tailset, matched by clean underline with good tuck-up. Evident forechest, ok front, deep brisket and well-arched feet. Touch upright in shoulder, but good length and return of upper arm, with balanced rear angulation. Moved out really well, showing good reach through the fore and powerful drive from the rear. RBOB.

2nd Horgan’s ARITAUR LOVE ME LONG TIME, 4yr bl/r bitch, presenting a clean, square and compact outline. Feminine head with keen expression, good length and depth and enough underjaw, would prefer a touch more width to muzzle. Good front with straight parallel legs and close-lying elbows, and standing on correct cat-like feet. Excellent short, firm slightly sloping topline and balanced angulation, would like a little more turn of stifle. Croup is nicely filled with plenty behind her well-set tail. Moved well with precise footfall from all angles.
