Striker has been receiving some wonderful critiques from the judges:



Richard Wiles (Richbourne)

"Strongly made yellow dog with a good head and expression, excellent bone, level topline, typical tail and well-developed hindquarters. He moves well and was shown to a high standard."



Heather Wiles-Fone (Heatherbourne)

"Eye-catching yellow, full of quality and style, he excels in his most beautiful head, dark pigment and perfect balance, lovely front with neat feet, excellent angulation front and rear, floated round the ring when moving and presented to perfection.  Top class and one for the top."



Laura J. Dedering (Folklaur)

"A substantial dog, very masculine yet nothing coarse about him.  Soft, kind expression.  Good reach of neck.  Beautifully balanced and nicely angled front and rear.  Very nicely boned.  He moved effortlessly."



Barbara Nowak (Broyhill)

"A quality, athletic yellow with balanced angles front and rear displaying a lovely, clean outline, well shaped head with alert expression, long clean neck, well placed shoulders flowing through to a strong level back and powerful loins. Moved with authority and ease."



Mary Roseberry (Rozzyay)

"This boy was close up to winner.  He was shown in top condition; beautiful light yellow with a gorgeous head, plenty of bone and flawless on the move"
