Judge: Mrs Stella Coombes
I would like to thank the committee for asking me to judge, also to thank the exhibitors for their entries.
I have had a great interest in these vigilant, confident, yet sometimes aloof dogs, with a character all of their own for a long time. They all have good dentition; they always look in superb condition. These are dogs that have not been messed about by us humans, may they stay that way. They are also very loyal to their owners.
