Neck, Top-line and Body

The length of neck must display an image of balance to the total dog. It is slightly arched, carrying the head gracefully and setting neatly into the shoulders.

  • The back is just short enough to square the body.
  • The top-line is level and the rump curves slightly to the set-on of the tail.
  • The chest is deep with good width, ribs well sprung and carried well back to the loins.
  • The body should appear short.
  • The tail is set on low, short, fine and tapering, straight or screw and must not be carried above the horizontal. (Note: The preferred tail does not exceed in length more than one-quarter the distance from set-on to hock.)


Disqualify: Docked tail

Body Faults: Gaily carried tail

Serious Body Faults: Roach back, sway back, slab-sided
