Great Yarmouth Gorleston & District Canine Society

German Shepherd Dog.

Veteran. 1.

1st. Smith’s Portnall Elrick zu Sarocal ShCM. 7 year old large, strong sable male with superb temperament. Correct dentition & testicles. Well boned and masculine without any coarseness. Excellent proportions, coat quality & pigment. Clean topline which he maintained on the move, and very good underline. Beautiful head and expression with stunning dark mask, correct dark almond shaped eyes, correct head planes, and well shaped ears set slightly wide. Outstanding front construction with textbook length and angulation of shoulder and upper arm. Good width of chest and spring of rib, firm pasterns and nice tight feet. Strong, broad loin. Croup of good length, set slightly steep, still giving a nice broad thigh. Would prefer slightly less hind angulation. Very powerful movement with excellent forereach and drive through the rear. Moves straight & sound in front, but could be firmer away. Overall a stunning dog, a pleasure to judge. BOB.
