Just 6 mths and wow, what a lovely baby. Correct body proportions, super head with correct planes, pleasing eye and good neck. Well laid shoulders giving her excellent front angles. Ribs of good depth & well ribbed back to short strong loin. Correct rear angles and tail set.  Such a true steady mover for one so young.  Best puppy and so pleased that she went on to win Puppy Group 2.
