TIBETAN MASTIFF

I’m sorry that some exhibitors missed their classes due to traffic. The breed needs to be taken good care of. There were a couple that weren’t correct in type or balance. A Tibetan Mastiff should be powerful but never appear clumsy or light.
JD (1) 1 Perkins’ Callowdeale Harisch. Young male of correct type, well shaped masculine head and expression, strong neck and topline, still needs to put more body on, typically angulated, needs to tighten in pasterns, moved well. Best Male.
PGD (2) 1 Perkins’ Callowdale Harisch.
PB (1) 1 Hartwell’s Balbina Cerny Krasavec At Dokhyi NAF TAF (Imp Cze). Red, 7 mths old of very good type, well shaped head, still needs to fill, good neck, correct angulation behind, should have had more bone, ok movement.
JB (2) 1 Hartwell’s Pentara Erzhima For Dokhyi NAF TAF (Imp Rus). Red, well shaped head, correct expression, correct body proportions, ok bone, tail could have been better carried, moves ok. BP. 2 Perkins’ Callowdale Hermione. Young bitch, a bit unbalanced because her development in head and front is more than the rest of her today, moves close behind.
PGB (4, 1) 1 Lloyd’s Carramia Ain’t No Limits. Correct head and expression, good angulation in front, straight behind, needs training, socialising, a bit slapsided in ribs. 2 Perkins’ Callowdale Hermione.
OB (4) 1 Lowe’s Callowdale Maysee Grae. Blue and tan, just the correct type, she’s a big girl but so full of quality and breed details, well bodied, she gave me my faith in the breed back when she entered the ring. BB and BOB. 2 Lloyd’s Hatice Bisurman At Carramia (Imp Pol). Excellent head and expression, strong topline, well bodied but should have had more air under air. Soft coat. 3 Hartwell’s Dokhyi Khan Gyala Lhatse NAF TAF (Imp Rus).
