Puppy Dog – 3 entries (1 absent)

1. Dare’s Larkhund Black Panther Darsoms (IKC) – What a lovely young black and tan dog this is, having seen him ringside recently I was delighted to get my hands on him and he didn’t disappoint. Lovely masculine head on a lengthy neck giving him the elegance I prefer. Good shoulders and return of upper arm, good length of ribbing and short loin. Neat rear which he used to power round the ring. He has the correct height to length proportions and ground clearance. Full of himself just as a puppy should be which gives him such ring presence. Covered the ground with ease with long strides and true coming and going. Loved him and couldn’t deny him the CC and BOB. BPIB. Delighted to see him shortlisted in the Puppy Group.

2. Johnson & Cross’ Africandawns Myles Long – Another good black and tan male, lower to the ground than 1 and doesn’t have the elegance in head but well-constructed and has lovely rear angulation which he uses well to drive from behind. In excellent coat and condition.
