BASSET HOUND Junior.
1st Melbourne, Hirst & Walker. DIHEATH REALLY COSMIC AT KEJANA. 13 Mth old Male, Broken Tri. This flashy boy has still a lot of maturing to do. He has lovely teeth set correctly. Nice tight feet. Moved freely but wasn’t comfortable on the show mats. This impeeded his movement slightly. Gave him Reserve BOB.
