Working & Pastoral Breeds Association Of Scotland

Breed: Puppy Groups

I had some lovely puppies in both groups and feel sure that many of them will make their mark in their respective breeds. Pastoral Puppy Group For the top spot I chose Weightman’s Bearded Collie, Debbeacol Takes Two To Tango. Well proportioned with the most attractive head and expression. Good breadth of skull and strong muzzle. Lovely expressive eyes. Nicely arched neck. Good shoulders. Decent forechest and depth of brisket. Ribbed well back. Low set tail of good length. Her good coat is well presented but doesn’t obscure her outline at all. Moved out well with a fluid, easy stride. In the challenge for BPIS her maturity just gave her the edge over the very handsome Rottweiler. Freer’s Samoyed, Nikara Follow That Dream. Bred in the purple and a real eye-catcher. Beautifully balanced with a masculine but very attractive head and expression. Flat skull; neat, well furred ears and excellent pigmentation. Good bone, legs and feet. Good body and spring of rib. Excellent coat and condition. Moved out well with drive and bags of style. Walker’s Border Collie, Maraje Just Because at Ravenskirk. I admired her head and keen, intelligent expression. Absolutely typical in all respects. Good neck and shoulders, good breadth and depth fo chest and well sprung ribs. Strong, well angulated quarters. Moved in a very typical fashion with a smooth, easy step. Mottram’s Polish Lowland Sheepdog, Mybeards Hera. She completed a quartet of good quality pups. Vey typical rectangular outline, good body with some breadth and strength over the loin. Strong well angulated hindquarters. Moved out well. Also shortlisted were the G.S.D., Hungarian Puli, Old English Sheepdog and the Welsh Corgi (Pembroke) Working Puppy Group In first place was Trueman, Brownridge & Cartwright’s Rottweiler, Steigen Nevada Mit Jaegerot. A strongly made, handsome masculine youngster. Good head proportions, neat well carried ears. Good forehand with strong bone and good feet. Good breadth of chest and depth of brisket. Shown in good muscle tone. On the move he has plenty of power and covered the big ring with great ease. A good showman with an excellent temperament. Farrar’s Newfoundland, Disoranto Moonlight Shadow at Darkpeak. A feminine very unexaggerated bitch. Beautifully balanced with some breadth of skull, good healthy eyes. Square muzzle. Excellent forehand with good bone. Well ribbed with strong topline and some breadth over the loins. Sound and typical on the move and presented in excellent condition. Whitney & Di Martino’s Giant Schnauzer, Primavista Imaginarium. Not quite the maturity of the two above her but she is so typical and very pleasing to handle. Grand head with neat, well carried ears. Keen, alert expression. Good quality bone. Decent forechest and strong, well ribbed body. Moved out soundly with some drive from the rear. Morna’s Dogue de Bordeax, Aibrean Almeria. Grand head with nice finish to muzzle. Good sized nostrils. Broad, strong neck. Good body proportions. On the move she is sound and free with very typical head carriage. I also shortlisted the Boxer, Great Dane, Leonberger and the St. Bernard. Judge: Tom Mather
