"Otto's" Critique: (printet in DogWorld and OurDogs)
Ramvad's Petit Heroes Canned Heat (ATC .... )
Another very nice dog of different type and in excellent o/w coat.
Not quite 2 yrs old. Compact, well balanced hound with great angulations throughout.
Long strong neck. Masculine well proportioned head, great pigment.
Moved a bit wide in front. Strong bone, good feet. Well settled looked a picture.
Strong quarters, moved soundly. Difficulty in settling especially in the challenge for RDCC.
