A truly beautiful b/t bitch of excellent breed type, is of an ideal size & so well put together. She is utterly feminine with superb construction throughout.

I loved her conical head & expression, super in outline & so well balanced.

She comes into her own on the move, so sound away & back, with excellent reach & drive in profile. Presented in excellent coat & condition, a stylish showgirl who carries herself so well, she is certainly special & she knows it.
