Breed: Dachshund (Miniature Smooth Haired)

West Of England Ladies Kennel Society Championship Show 2019

Miniature Smooth -Haired

Enjoyable day judging Min Smooths @ WELKS, numerically entry was very pleasing, quality rather mixed. Rather concerned with the front construction, through faulty forequarter angulation please read and heed “Sayer” (The Illustrated Standard of Points of The Dachshund).Very pleased with the winners of the main awards, excellent representatives of Dachshunds in miniature.
