1. Cooper & Ralph’s Saxon Milagre Skyforce. Just a year old, attractive brindle. Quite a different type. Correctly proportioned head with slightly rounded skull. Laid back folded ear. Strong round bone on forequarters. Dew claws on hindquarters. Tail detracted. Coat coming, but not much undercoat at the moment. Hard to access outline and movement as he was rather naughty. BEST DOG.
