Poderi's OFA & CERF Reports

Carolyn Fry, noted British Judge and author of The Italian Spinone and Judge of our 2007 National Specialty said about her Best of Breed, Poderi:
This dog impressed me as soon as he entered the ring. His breed type stood out for me. He is a two year old well-boned masculine dog carrying a super wiry, close-fitting jacket. He still has some maturing to do to finish the picture. His head planes diverge correctly, his muzzle is strong and he has good balance skull/muzzle. He looked straight up at me with his well-placed, round and expressive eyes. Superb nose. Correct ears, set on well. Limbs are oval and he has large, round feet. Would like stronger knuckling. Well laid-back, strong shoulders with deep chest and super ribbing. Correct square outline with a topline that flows from the backskull, crest and neck, merging into slightly raised withers and creating a smooth, rounded line into strong loins and a broad, correctly-set croup. Correct bend of stifle and proportions of hock/thigh. Moved with a typical pounding trot, holding his profile well and his head proudly. A real star and one I shall follow with interest.
