Kelly Wilson Judge Staffordshire Bull Terriers -
West Midland terrier society
Saturday 15th February 2020
Firstly I would like to thank the club for giving me the opportunity to
judge their show, secondly all the exhibitors who entered their dogs
under me I really appreciate it , I found no major problems with mouths
or bites so it won’t be mentioned in my critique.
Puppy dog (2)
1st Mr and Mrs Lewis, Hamastaff to Be Frank at Karjaydan
Stunning red dog with white chest black mask of 10 months,good dark
round eye , short neck leading to good top line, wide front, well sprung
ribs and muscled backend. Made his handler work on the day as seemed
distracted by something or someone, but moved well when settled. BPD ,
BPIB and puppy group 4.
2nd Mr D Corfield, Dark Mysterious Protector At Bostinstaffs. Black
brindle dog of 9 months, not as mature as first but sure this will come.

Junior dog (9) 4 abs
1st Mr & Mrs Darby,Nikkylestaff Heart Of Gold At Claretbull
Beautiful black brindle dog, beautiful keen expression on this dog which
kept drawing my eye back to him in this class. Perfectly round dark
eyes, housed in a broad skull with distinct stop, leading to a short
neck good width of front. Up on the Pasterns, close coupled with a level
top line, moved really well. This boy pushed for best of breed but only
lost out on maturity.

Seen this dog from outside the ring many a time and thought he looked
nice but was better than i anticipated when i touched him. Have wrote in
my notes this dog ticks every box for me. Well balanced black brindle

distinct stop, dark eyes, correct bite, nice underjaw lovely expression
which he used to his advantage. Nice width to his front and good bone.

quarters. He was turned immaculately and is a credit to his owners .
2nd Desmond, Ch Elitebull Challenger
A very worthy champion this black brindle dog with stunning head piece
dark eyes nice ears correct front , moved well but I felt that last time
I judged him there was more of him and after speaking with his owner who
said that she’d had a bitch I season which explianed a lot as we all
know how much this can effect our stud dogs. Unlucky to meet 1st place
