Dachshund (Miniature Wire Haired)
Judge: Mr D W
Many thanks to the exhibitors, I really enjoyed judging your lovely variety. Generally I found temperaments and presentation was very good. Some hounds who looked good standing did not move so well which therefore affected placings.

1st Webster's, Foxearth Fieldgun with Webline NAF
I liked this 8 month old boy's temperament, taking everything in his stride. Good wire coat, good length of neck, would prefer more length of ribbing, strong topline and good ground clearance, moved well enough to take the class.
