NECK AND BODY

 

Neck

Strong, full, well muscled, nicely arched and of sufficient length to carry the head proudly above the topline when standing at attention.

Body

Short, compact, close coupled, strongly muscled, broad, deep and well let down in the flank.

Topline

Straight, strong and level from the withers to the root of the tail.

The correct chest and topline. Note again the equal, balanced proportions.

Chest

Broad, deep and muscular, never narrow or slab-sided. The ribs close together and well sprung, not barrel. The spring of the front ribs is somewhat narrowed at their lower ends to permit the shoulder and upper arm to fit smoothly against the chest wall. The floor of the chest is broad and deep extending down to the tips of the elbows. The point of sternum slightly in front of the shoulder points.

Serious Faults

Labored or abdominal breathing (not to include normal panting), narrow or slab-sided chest.

Loin

Well muscled, strong, short, broad and deep.

Croup

Short and broad with powerful rump and thigh muscles giving a level croup. The body, back, coupling and croup must all be short to give the required square build.

Tail

Well feathered, set high and carried closely to the back at all times, following the line of the spine at the start.
