3rd Puppy, Amy Kinsey ‘ 7 months old, tri bitch. This bitch has a lot to offer but a little raw at present. Lovely shape overall, with a sweet head and alert expression with ears used at all times. Good dark eye, obliquely set with level plains, and clean throughout.  Front needs to tighten a little due to age but rear angulation and lovely tight feet made her move extremely well once settled.  Arched neck and lovely long tail which wagged non-stop. Look forward to seeing this one mature over time (BPB).’

Well-shaped & placed ears. Correct aloof & proud expression. Once settled moved correctly with a good side gait. Best Puppy.’
