He had very dark pigment; nose, eyes, etc. and never had a “snow nose.” He had a beautiful headpiece with a nice stop and a strong muzzle resulting in a very soft expression. He was prepotent to producing his headtype.
He was a moderate size dog, balanced front & rear, very muscular and in good condition. He had good length of neck and great topline that holds on the move, with a tail carriage that is off the topline.
Bentley had full dentition with the correct scissor bite. Bentley’s movement was powerful and fluid displaying nice side gate. He moved straight as an arrow coming and going away.
