Dogue de Bordeaux
Class 124 Puppy (2/1)
1st 324 Phillips’ Bronzelaza Hooch. Just six months old, at his first show. A little overawed by proceedings but soon got the hang of it. Large, masculine head, with good stop and correct amount of wrinkling. Nicely shaped, oval eyes. Small, high set ears. Strong neck into good lay of shoulder. Well off for bone, decent pasterns and feet. Good depth of chest and well ribbed. Hindquarters need firming up but this is to be expected at his age. Hocks are strong. Correct tailset and carriage. Very loose on the move, again this is completely acceptable for such a youngster. Very promising puppy. BPIB.
