British Manchester Terrier Club

Breed: Manchester Terrier

 THE BRITISH MANCHESTER TERRIER CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW SATURDAY 12TH OCTOBER 2019

I would like to thank the membership of the BMTC for giving me the opportunity to judge their Championship Show.

On the whole Temperaments were excellent and all mouths and dentition good, on the down side light and round eyes seem to be creeping in and we seem to be loosing the shapely what i call curvaceous body and getting a more flat back which in my opinion is not typical of the Manchester Terrier. Bitches are more superior to the dogs at the moment.

OPEN BITCH

2 nice bitches

1st Mr D Greenslade Utterbygreen Mint Chocolat A bitch i have judged before as a puppy who i gave a RCC to i could have taken her home as a puppy and nothing has changed.

She has good angulation front and rear and moves out well. Pleased to award her the CC & BOS RBIS

2nd Church, Saxton & Dale Rattustrap Fade to Black (AI) Unlucky to meet one and a different type, slightly longer in body which makes her look flatter in back but overall she is a nice size, she has a feminine head but her eye is slightly round medium in colour. She has good angulation and moved out well. the noise in the room seemed to unsettle her.
