||Group 1 (Toys)
Decidedly square and
cobby, it is 'multum in parvo' shown in compactness of
form, well knit proportions and hardness of muscle,
but never to appear low on legs.

|Head And Skull:
large, round, not apple-headed, with no indentation of
skull. Muzzle relatively short, blunt, square, not
upfaced. Nose fairly large with well open nostrils.
Wrinkles on forehead clearly defined without
exaggeration. Eyes or nose never adversely affected or
obscured by over nose wrinkle. Pinched nostrils and
heavy or over nose wrinkle is unacceptable and should
be heavily penalised.
Dark, not too large,
round in shape, soft and solicitous in expression,
very lustrous, and when excited, full of fire. Never
protruding, exaggerated or showing white. Free from
obvious eye problems.
Thin, small, soft
like black velvet. Two kinds - 'Rose ear' - small drop
ear which folds over and back to reveal the burr.
'Button ear' - ear flap folding forward, tip lying
close to skull to cover opening. Preference given to
Wry mouth, teeth or tongue showing all highly
undesirable. Wide lower jaw with incisors almost in a

wide in chest. Ribs well sprung and carried well back.
Topline level neither roached nor dipping.
Legs very strong, of
moderate length, with good turn of stifle, well under
body, straight and parallel when viewed from rear.
Neither so long as
the foot of the hare, nor so round as that of the cat;
well-split-up toes; the nails black.
||High set, curled tightly over hip.
Double curl highly desirable.
Viewed from in front
should rise and fall with legs well under shoulder,
feet keeping directly to front, not turning in nor
out. From behind action just as true. Using forelegs
strongly putting them well forward with hindlegs
moving freely and using stifles well. A slight
unexaggerated roll of hindquarters typifies gait.

neither harsh, off-standing or woolly.

complete between colour, trace (black line extending
from occiput to tail) and mask. Markings clearly
defined. Muzzle or mask, ears, moles on cheeks, thumb

||Ideal weight: 6.3-8.1 kg (14-18 lbs).
Any departure from
the foregoing points should be considered a fault and
the seriousness with which the fault should be
regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree
and its effect upon the health and welfare of the dog.
Male animals should
have two apparently normal testicles fully descended
into the scrotum.
