Dachshund (Smooth Haired)


OD (2) 1 Batesí Batendach Rhinestone Cowboy. Chocolate dog in first rate condition with a wonderful, outgoing temperament, which is so nice to see in a smooth. Houndy head with good leathers and elegant carriage. Prominent forechest with well filled crook. Tight elbows, super ribbing with sternum well back. Strong, short loin, well angulated hammy quarters. Really powers round the ring, well off for bone and tight well padded feet and no wrinkle. A real handful, but a super dog! Best of Breed.

OB (3) 1 Hunterís Batendach Just Joy at Dacharouse. Very elegant black and tan bitch with lovely head and eye. Good front assembly with prominent pro sternum. Well laid shoulders and well ribbed up. Tidy hindquarters, carrying a bit too much weight so didnít have the drive of the dog on the move, but nonetheless a lovely bitch. See she is his litter sister. Best Bitch. 2 Cunninghamís Ir Ch Sontag Soul Purpose for Celandine. Black and tan bitch of lovely type. Well constructed all through, just a bit unsettled here and gave her handler a bit of a hard time. Smart mover. Res Best Bitch.
