Dog CC, 1st OD2019BUBAMr G CarterAnother class of high quality dogs, all are a great credit to their owners and breeders,Mature 4 years. This dog just has so many qualities and has ’Shih Tzu’ stamped all over him. He is so beautifully balanced whichever way you look at him. Great headpiece that is so well proportioned showing typical ‘Shih Tzu’ arrogance with a full expressive eye. Correct nose placement with good width to underjaw. Nice neck with well laid Shoulder. Sound front assembly embracing correct width to forechest. Well ribbed up in body which is of correct height/length proportions. Well muscled in hindquarters giving good bend to stifle. Correct topline with quality tailset. This dog was presented in great coat. He is not a flashy dog, but he is honest – he has all the breed essentials combined with type and quality. Moved soundly both coming and going and presented a balanced profile picture combining both drive and reach. Showed plenty of pad when moving away. I had no hesitation in awarding him the Dog CC today

Res Post Graduate Dog2017Shih Tzu ClubMrs R Lysgaard
1st Post Graduate Dog2017DarlingtonMr I MillarTwo good dogs of slightly varying type. And he was cool, doing just enough and no more! He scored with the initial impression of his outline, slightly longer than high, broad, round skull balanced with his tail and a level back. His head is very satisfying, very together with everything in harmony, the round, dark eyes and tip-tilted nose giving him a haughty outlook. He is soundly constructed and carries a full coat, dense and thick. He moved soundly but reluctantly and just managed to hold off
