Judge's Critiques

Minor Puppy Dog:
1 Shepherdsway Black Ferrari: This puppy was clean moving down and back and used his angulation well on the side. He had a nice broad skull with excellent ear set, heavy bone and a good coat.
2 Shepherdsway Black Label of Casiat: My second place puppy also moved very well. He had an attractive head but not quite as broad a skull, good body type but with a bit flatter coat.
