1rst & Winners Dog
Jinn Shi'Rayan. This is a 4 year old dog
who is less than happy to be photographed as he has his ears rosed and
pulled back. He has a lovely lean head with good length of muzzle
and hardly pronounced stop, though with just a slight convex finish to
the bridge, and appropriate gentle, nostalgic expression.
There is no good profile view but from front it would appear the neck is long enough to balance with the head. It is impossible to gauge whether there is a crest to it without a side shot, however based upon the proper set back of this dogs front, I would think the neck is placed & carried properly set off from the shoulder which appears long & well positioned. The back has a bit of slope from withers toward the rear rather than being horizontal and the rise begins just a touch too soon, however, it is smooth and harmonious. The underline is evenly curved with flank well tucked up. Croup is long but not falling away too strongly. There appears to be acceptable muscle to upper & lower thigh which is properly long. Hocks appear strong and well bent.
Without rear and movement photos, some things must be extrapolated from the other photos. Based upon his overall balance, I expect this dog would have appropriate movement for the breed.
