"My first appointment judging these and one i was really looking forward to. A really lovely entry from such a minority breed. Some quality attributes from all the dogs and ALL had wonderful temperaments. Having spent a lot of time in the ring with them it was great to finally get my hands on them.... 4 year old male of impressive stature. White and black with an amazing headpiece. This dog is masculine throughout. Although not out of proportion for his size. Really nice nature, such a gentle giant with myself and his ring mates. Excellent leg length compared to height ratio with ample bone to hold his frame. Correct front construction with good chest, strong neck and solid topline. The same is to be said for his rear construction. This powerful dog both in stand and on the move out and back and side profile just oozes strength. A dog you would certainly like on your team to get you through deep snow. Being picky i would prefer a slightly better eye shape. Pleased to award him Best Of Breed as he seemed to have the edge in the heat with his ground covering movement but certainly was well challenged by the graduate winner."

Upstanding all male young man only just coming up to 3 yrs of age. Standing presents a solid outline. Good head, correct ear placement, calm, friendly eyes giving good expression, strong bone, good neck and shoulders, firm back, good coat and condition, powerful quarters with good second thigh, moved extremely well with plenty of rear drive, sound in all departments, well handled. Unfortunately he had suffered a particularly nasty mosquito bite on his neck just where the lead/collar rested, nonetheless he allowed me to examine him, as usual, without a flicker of an eye. What a trooper. BD and RBOB."|

Well made all through with a strong topline and muscular loin. Muscular hindquarters and correct tail set. Moved out soundly and well, although a bit of a handful. A strong, lively upstanding male.

As a minority breed with only a small number of dogs shown I was very pleased with my quality entry for my first Greenland appointment. Temperaments were superb (handlers and dogs!)... Junior D/B (2). These two clearly showed the ‘marked difference’ in size required by the standard.... 16 mo male. Impressive in size, with good height and correct strong bone and feet. Very much the ‘teenager’ at the moment, needing to broaden and drop into himself as he matures, to show off his proportions to best advantage, but a really lovely boy. The best head of the day, good flat skull and correct proportions, lovely expression. Super weatherproof coat so well presented. On the move he is very sound with good drive. Look forward to seeing him when fully adult."
