Well ribbed. Strong clean bone, strong pastern, excellent knuckled feet.  Moved nice and steady for one so young.

Excellent dry head, clean cheeked flat broad skull, well placed ears. Clean strong arched neck ran into good shoulders, good return of upper arm.  Ridge correct, excellent body, top line held stacked and moving. Powerful rear, wide thighs. He moved well carrying tail correct, just slightly loose in front, which should tighten with age. Lovely puppy.
