other; no feature being in such prominence from either excess or lack of quality that the animal
appears poorly proportioned.
Influence of Sex - In comparing specimens of different sex, due allowance is to be made in
favor of bitches, which do not bear the characteristics of the breed to the same marked degree
as do the dogs.
Size, Proportion, Substance: Weight not to exceed 28 pounds; over 28 pounds is a

round top, set high on the head but not too close together, and carried erect with the orifice to

defined, causing a hollow groove between the eyes with heavy wrinkles forming a soft roll over
the extremely short nose; nostrils broad with a well defined line between them. Nose black.
Nose other than black is a disqualification, except in the case of the lighter colored dogs,
where a lighter colored nose is acceptable but not desirable. Flews black, thick and broad,
