German Shorthaired Pointer
PUPPY DOG (3)
1st Mann’s VALGER RAGNAR
A very well put together youngster. Well proportioned and attractive head with intelligent expression and correct eye shape. Strong front assembly with shoulders well laid, short in back and has adequate rear angulation. Presented in good muscular condition with good coat texture. Moved out soundly with a good striding action, needs to tighten up but with maturity I anticipate he will have a very bright future. Close decision to take BP over his littermate. I believe he gained his JW on the day. Well done. BP
2nd Rose & Hunt’s PINGARYPOINT TOP SECRET AT KAVACANNE
Another quality youngster, built on a larger frame than my winner but so well balanced throughout. Pleasing in head with dark eye. Shoulders well laid and good forechest with brisket down to elbow. Moved around the ring with drive and confidence, his handler getting the best from him.

JUNIOR DOG (4)

Stood alone in this class, but a sturdy male of pleasing type. Has a typical head of good proportions and kind eye. When stacked he is balanced in profile has good depth of brisket, strong topline and muscular hindquarters with good bend of stifle. Needs to steady up on the move to appreciate him.
LIMIT DOG (4)
1st Harris’s BARLEYARCH PRINGLE JW
A top quality youngster who stood out in this class. Appealed in head with that noble expression, with correct eye shape and colour. Excellent front assembly with good upperarm, he has desired short back with good spring of rib. Well-muscled throughout with ample rear angulation.

2nd Stopforth’s TAFTAZINI CESAR CHANCE WITH SERENYMOR JW
Lots to like about this young male, a finer built dog than my first placed but so balanced throughout. Pleasing head proportions with a kind expression.
