Open Dog OD (2 Entries) Abs: 0 1st: Woodgate, Boggia & De Souza’s Xandu Khan Schuru Esch Schams Two dogs of different type both correct, as we are aware that this breed comes from various regions of North Africa and the dogs were bred for the job they were used for and probably the terrain they worked in.

This 5 year old sand dog has a super long head large dark eyes and elegant neck. Good ears and earset. Large black nose. Good well arched feet. Well muscled shoulders and strong legs. Well filled in forechest and ribs go well back with obvious tuck up. Correctly angulated hindquarters and good tail carriage.He moved effortlessly round the ring and won today on his very strong extension in front. Best Male BOB Godfrey and Atkinson’s Gwasila Nuri Al Baida At Longhedge (IMP DEU) Another good upstanding male of different type. 4 year old Brindle. Good neck and shoulders. Well arched feet. A little shorter in body length than the winner but ribbing went well back and he has good hindquarters. Not quite as enthusiastic on the move. Reserve Best Dog

Open Bitch (1 Entries) Abs: 0 1st: Clark’s Magida Sabiih al Sahra at Thiefside {IMP DEU) ShCE a lovely 5 year old bitch of very good type. She has an elegant long head and correct earset. Good body shape throughout as well as looking athletic. Shoulders and feet correct. I liked her strong but elegant outline and well angulated hindquarters. She moved very well and this was a difficult decision, I am sure these two must change places many times. Best Bitch.
