Many thanks to the exhibitors for entering and attending the show today, it’s not easy with a large breed at an indoor show and the ring, unfortunately, wasn’t as spacious as I would have liked, your entry was appreciated very much. Many thanks to my brilliant stewards Joe and Adam who kept the ring running so smoothly and efficiently.

Beautifully presented male puppy of 8 months, head developing well with good eye, mask and well set ears, strong muzzle and lovely expression, nicely angulated front and rear with clean, straight front and good bone, liked his proportions and sound top-line, he moved out steadily showing some promising movement, in profuse puppy coat, BP.
