FOXHOUND


IT WAS AN EXTREMELY ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE TO JUDGE THIS OLD, WORKMANLIKE BREED. I MUST COMMEND THE OWNERS AND EXHIBITORS FOR THEIR DEDICATION TO THE BREED ENSURING THEIR CONTINUED SURVIVAL


OPEN DOG (1)

1ST Griffiths’ DAZZLEBY CHORISTER an impressive upstanding 4 year old male who has a powerful well balanced look. Handsome breed typical head set on a good length strong neck. True in front, strong but upright in pasterns, tight strong feet. Capacious and sturdy in body with desirable spring of ribs and strong and firm in hindquarters. Shown in hard condition and moved with freedom and drive. Best Dog and Best of Breed.


GOOD CITIZEN DOG SCHEME DOG (1)

1ST Griffiths’ NORTH STAFFORDSHIRE CHAIRMAN (MFHA) a mature nearly 9 year old strikingly handsome male who has a particularly attractive head both in shape and proportions. Pleasing width in front with well boned true parallel legs but would prefer more fore-chest. Strong, lengthy neck and firm in body with moderate angulations front and rear. Free in movement but needed to stride out when viewed from the side.


OPEN BITCH (2)

1ST NL CH DAZZLEBY DANDELION an impressive breed typical 11½ year old houndy bitch who has a very lovely head. Strong in neck and body but retaining both breed type and femininity. Preferred her front and pasterns to 2nd. Stands well over the ground and presents a powerful, well balanced workmanlike appearance. Better mover of this class. Best Bitch.

2ND Treadwell & Walmsley’s FROSTISEN LADY TREADINGTON RAF a typy 21 month old of slightly smaller stature to 1st and who is pleasing in head. Would prefer more lay back of shoulder and more let down behind to present a more satisfying picture. Free movement but not precise in action.
