THE MIDLAND DOBERMANN CLUB (Open Show) 17-02-08
                   Judge;  DEBBIE GAMBLE  (Keyala)

My thanks to MDC for inviting me to judge, having not judged for sometime now in the UK I was impressed with the overall quality of the dogs, there seems to be a very strong influence now of European dogs which shows in the heads the improvement in bone & darker markings & most have retained the excellent tailsets from the UK breeding. I found a few missing teeth & 1 level bite which reflected in there placings.
