Minor Puppy 8 (1a)

This 7mth old dog caught my eye on entering the ring, I just loved him, oozing quality from head to tail, a striking outline, beautiful head & expression, with good reach of neck & very well balanced throughout. He moved freely & in complete harmony with his young handler who presented & handled him to perfection. BP
