SIZE AND SUBSTANCE:

Dogs 25" at the shoulder, 85 lbs.

Bitches 23" at shoulder, 75 lbs.

When dogs are equal in all other aspects, the dog nearest the desired freighting size is preferred. The bigger should not necessarily be considered to be the better.

EARS:

Medium size, but small in proportion to the head, triangular, slightly rounded at the tips set wide apart on the outside back edges of the skull on line with the upper corner of the eye, giving ears the appearance (when erect) of standing off from the skull. This description of proper ear placement is accurate only when the eyes have the correct oblique placement in the skull.

Medium size, triangular, close fitting, set high on the head. Thick, well furred, slightly arched at the back, strongly erect, slight rounded tips pointing straight up.

HEAD:
