HEAD
CRANIAL REGION:
Skull: Should be of a fair length (width of head between ears, distance from occiput to stop, stop to end of nose, should be equal), flat and broad between the ears; the head should be free from wrinkles when in repose.

Stop: The stop should be reasonably well defined and not in one straight line from the nose to the occipital bone.

The distance from the tip of the nose to the stop, from the stop to the occiput (bony protuberance at rear of scull), and the width of the scull should be equal. It is important that the distance from the tip of the nose to the stop should never be less than the other two dimensions (i.e. short muzzle is undesirable).

FACIAL REGION:
Nose: The nose should be black or brown. A black nose should be accompanied by dark eyes, a brown nose by amber eyes.

Muzzle: The muzzle should be long, deep and powerful.

Lips: The lips should be clean, closely fitting the jaws.

Mouth: Jaws strong, with a perfect and complete scissor bite, i.e. the upper teeth closely overlapping the lower teeth and set square to the jaws. The teeth must be well developed, especially the canines or holders.

Cheeks: Cheeks should be clean.

Eyes: Should be set moderately well apart, round and bright and sparkling, with intelligent expression, their colour harmonising with colour of the coat.

Ears: Should be set rather high, of medium size, rather wide at base, and gradually tapering to a rounded point. They should be carried close to the head.

Neck: Should be fairly long, strong and free from throatiness.
