“1st- Conlon’s Jesamuda Natiri Star, Typical hound head of the breed with
good ear carriage and long deep muzzle. Good length of neck leading into
well laid shoulders, length to body with level top line and correct tail
set. low on the pasterns with a good bend of stifle. A nice example of the
breed. At nine months has a promising future. BoB, BP, Puppy Hound Group 1,
Hound Group 3. BPIS.”

“I was very impressed by the bone and overall conformation of this light wheaten girl. Well shaped head and well carried ears. Excellent neck. Good length of ridge with symmetrical crowns, well angulated rear with lovely turn of stifle and strong hocks. Covering ground easily and excellent rear convergence, the front needs to develop but is by no means lacking. Excellent and very steady temperament and wonderful overall condition. Went on to win BPiS.”
