Belfast Dog Show Society

Breed: Bulldog


Thanks to Mr. J. Stubbs and committee of Belfast Dog Show Society for the invite to judge and looking after me on the day. Special thanks to my steward on the day who kept everything running smoothly. Unfortunately, the floor was an issue for Bulldogs, some did not like it at all and had to be placed accordingly, on a different surface places could have swapped position. Overall quality and condition of the dogs was very good, only 2 very short tails but not tight and just the one with no tail.
