MINOR PUPPY DOG
1st WEDGBURY’S MANZART WAR EMBLEM
RDCC and BPIS. Blk/tan WOW. Love this Puppy, hope he continues to mature into the male I foresee. His outline is superb and that first caught my eye, he didn’t need propping up he was just a natural. Strong head, correct ear carriage, dark oval eye. He mesmerised me when I looked into them. Well filled front, good bone and tight feet caught my attention. Long arched neck into well placed shoulder, correct depth of brisket. Topline, tailset superb and stood square. Movement good in this class and for CC line up, but when challenged for RBIS it let him down, but that will come with age, hopefully a very good future.
