Class 149 PD (1 Entries) Abs: 0 

1st: 516 FARLEIGH, Mrs M L & MCDONNELL Mrs D Kinabula's Milano With Triquetra 


High set erect ear correctly placed with the typical tilted tips, level head planes, flat cheeks with a oval amber eye, square body, with right depth of chest, exc front with a long arched neck, still needs to drop in his rear to give the correct slope to his topline, His style and carriage are there to see, so collected with his short springy trot carrying his tail in a sabre like fashion, he shows elegance, style and a beautiful silhouette. This is really is a top quality dog even at this age in my opinion and with maturity he has a bright future at the highest level. Loved him.. BP and BOB with no hesitation..
