Reserve Best Bitch in Show
Quality black-brindle bitch. Stood alone but could be pushing for honours in any class. Nice feminine head with a good keen expression, good pigmentation, nice clean muzzle, no excess lip, good dentition, level topline she held on the move. A good bend of stifle, nice tail carriage, moved well along the mat at the correct gait. Just carried a little bit of excess weight for me today. People who know me know I prefer my dogs lean and athletic. Very close between this bitch and winner of Junior Bitch for Best Bitch. The extra couple of pounds cost her today. Reserve Best Bitch

Top size black brindle, nice balance of bull & terrier with a good head, distinct stop, strong foreface, correct mouth with large teeth, dark eyes set well apart & neat ears. Straight front, good shoulder placement, firm body with ample rib & level topline. Handled well and moved like a dream

Another quality B/brindle bitch. Lovely head , clearly feminine but lacking nothing. Terrific expression with dark eye & an alertness that followed my every move around the ring ( made me smile). Clean front of good width and adequate depth to fore chest , nice weight of bone and good feet. Good rib and taper when viewed from above and a lightness in the loin that enhanced.
Nicely balanced when viewed in profile , Body (length and depth) balanced to leg length and overall height. Showing a little more angulation in the rear assembly than 1&2 but her movement was true both fore and aft.

An attractive black/brindle that is very much in the style I prefer. She possesses a lovely head type, is balanced, fit and not overdone in any way.

A lovely black brindle in super condition, very alert and used her ears to her full advantage makes you notice her!
Neat shapely head, lovely expressive dark eye, mouth ok, smart front displaying enough depth and width, muscular well defined hindquarters. Level topline, overall a very nice bitch that was handled to perfection.

Fit B/brindle with tidy feet and up on her toes, straight front with nice amount of lift and good shaped ribcage. Attractive underline and tidy topline, close coupled well placed rear pads, just the right angle in stifle, low set hocks, nicely set shoulder and upper arm. Good head proportions with maximum strength for me. Moved well and came close in final line
