Stop : Not very accentuated.


Nose : Black, large, nostrils well open.
Muzzle : Practically the same length as that of the skull.  Nasal bridge straight or slightly arched.
Lips : Lightly developed but covering the lower jaw.
Jaws/Teeth : Scissor bite.  Incisors set square to the jaws.
Cheeks : Lean.
Eyes : Oval shape; dark chestnut.  Very expressive and lively.
Leathers : Supple, curled in without excess, very slightly pointed; must reach the beginning of the nose without going beyond its extremity.  Set just below the eyeline.

NECK : Rather slender, with a little dewlap.

Back : Well supported, firm; short.
Loin : Muscled, slightly arched.
Croup : Very slightly oblique.
