Breed: Miniature Pinscher

Paignton Miniature Pinscher

Enjoyed judging this breed, turned out to be a family affair. The biggest challenge is movement. The UK standard is very clear (as is the FCI in requiring something entirely different), however the true hackney action was only evident in a handful of exhibits, and you have to judge the whole dog, not one point. Plenty had some leg lift, but not a hackney. V sporting crowd and good to see exhibitors giving a newcomer advice at her first show. Some real depth in the puppy classes

Minor Puppy D (2) 2 really good pups to start, both smart with sharp outlines. 1st: 4724 MCILROY-STRACEY Mrs P Krieger's Elf Fantastico Thought he had the better head of the pair, more balanced muzzle to skull, can grow into his ears.
