Miss Ali Walden ( Joalta ) NNC Open 26/ 09/2015

' Black 6 months old of good size, well boned throughout and still in most of his puppy coat, nice head and expression, not over done with a good shaped dark eye, lovely depth of body and length, developing well at the rear and took on the big ring, moved like he's been doing this for years. Best puppy dog '

Mr John J Burrows ( Mayoss ) Midland Counties 25/10/2015

' Super puppy, a good head developing, good rear and front angulation, excellent bone, moved very well. '

Mr Graham A Hill ( Non breed specialist - Dimland ) 28/11/2015

' A well grown 8 month old black who is pleasing in head, needs to grow into his ears, he has a very endearing gentle expression. He is very promising in development of bone and body with no obvious faults, which is so desirable in a puppy. He is true, well boned and well made in front with tight elbows endorsing his pleasing body substance and ribbing. Overall he already presents a balanced proportioned profile and, although has puppy features, he has sound foundation structure to grow on to a pleasing quality adult. His excellent conformation was confirmed by his active true movement. '

Mr Christopher M Drury ( breed specialist ) Birmingham National 06/05/2016

' 13 month old black dog. Good size. Close up to 1. Nice handsome kind head. Well balanced. Nicely proportioned throughout. Moved easily and freely '

Mrs Delphine Richards ( Sheridel ) Windsor 30/06/2016

' 15 month old very impressive male with the size, bone, width and depth not often evident at this age. Masculine head of good proportions, mid brown eye of correct shape, well shaped muzzle giving the desired balance to the head. Excellent strength of loin, being well muscled and short. Moved soundly and was a contender for the RCC but in the challenge he was slightly overreaching which created a subtle sideways gait. '

Mr Andrew R Sussams ( |Sealcove ) Leeds 22/07/2016

' Sixteen month old black male having strong bone and good head, dark eyes and ears correctly set. Correct bite and good reach of neck. Well bodied with deep chest and powerful hind quarters, moved with drive and well handled. '

Mrs Cathy Lyall ( Scotiabear ) Welsh kennel 26/08/2016

Mrs Gill M Barker ( Startrek ) South walses kennel 08/10/2016

' 18 months old. Well made strongly boned 18 month youngster, lots to like. Good size, super bone, looks impressive in profile. I love his head, masculine but not exaggerated in any way, very kind well fitted dark eye, well balanced curving skull with correct gentle stop. Straight strong parallel for forlegs, correct width and depth of chest, well let down in brisket. Excellent level strong topline which he maintains when striding out freely. Hind quarters are powerful with good turn of stifle and strong made hocks which he uses to good advantage when striding away. A very promising lad. I am sure he has a bright future.

Mr Ian Sexton ( non breed specialist - Greenmile ) Newfoundland club 22/10/2016

' A 19 month old black, typical outline, well balanced and substantial throughout, large head, broad skull, deep strong muzzle, dark eyes, ears of correct length. He has the correct amount of width across his forchest, well laid upper arm and shoulders, deep brisket, well sprung ribcage and ribs carried well back. Level back, correct slope of croup and strong rear quarters, feet good and coat in good condition of the correct texture. His movement was strong and true coming and going and he moved around the ring with drive and purpose. '

' At 19 mo this lad is well grown and harmoniously balanced, his head is of good size, well proportioned and displays correct attributes with eye that is just dark enough, well boned limbs support a body of substance and a well sprung ribcage, his topline is level and he has enough width through, free easy mover with correct tail carriage.'

Mr Graham A Hill ( Non breed specialist - Dimland ) 25/01/2017

' An upstanding 22 month old of impressive size and stature having a broad head which is masculine and breed typical in appearance. Pleasing confirmation all through, true well boned front and having depth and good tight elbows. Moderate angulation front and rear. Firm level topline. Moved the better of this class. '

Mr Frank Kane ( Non breed specialist - Hirontower ) Welks 28/04/2017

Mrs Debra Thornton ( Cypressbay - USA ) Southern Newfoundland Club 26/11/2016

' Lovely brown with pleasing expression. Good bone strong topline, good forechest I preferred her proportions and shortness of loin to 2nd. Moves well but I would take some hair off the inside of her hocks to give a truer picture of movement from behind. '
