The longitudinal aces skull and muzzle them converge slightly. The perimeter of the head, Measured from the cheeks, Also in females more than twice the length of the head. The head is moderately sculptured With zygomatic arches prominent is consistent skin and adherent to the lower, smooth and tight enough tissue.

4.1. Cranica REGION Skull: Broad and slightly arched seen from the front, ITS profile draws an irregular curve flattens That aborad along the external sagittal crest. Its width is equal to the length and corresponds to 6.6 / 10 of the total length of the head. Seen from above is a square shape by extrusion of the zygomatic arches and all the fascicles That wrap. The front jumps are well developed and prominent, frontal fossa is deep and the median furrow is visible. The occipital crest is not too evidenced. Occipital fossae (Concas) slightly marked. Stop: Molto due to the highly marked frontal bossing With frontal developed leap towards browridges detected.

4.2. FACIAL REGION

Nose in the same line of muzzle. Regarded profile shouldnt vertically protrude from the front margin of the lips, but meet His former side in the same upright plane of the front face of the snout. Should it be bulky to as flat on top, with wide, open and mobile nostrils. Pigmentation is black.

very wide and deep muzzle. The width of muzzle almost equal to ITS length. This Reaches 3.4 / 10 of the total length of the head. Its depth excede 50% snout length. The parallelism of the sides of the muzzle, fullness and body width of the jaw itself make the front face of the snout is square and flat. The muzzle is rectilinear and relatively flat. The bottom-side profile of the muzzle is Given by the upper lips. Suborbital region shows a slight chiselling bone.

Lips: fairly consistent. Upper lips, seen frontally, determine Their disjunction a “U” backwards, viewed from the side, hang moderately present. Commissure moderately clear and always Represents the lowest point of the lower side profile of the muzzle. The pigment is black.

Very wide, strong and thick with a slight shortening of the upper jaw with a consequent slight undershot jaw. The branches of the jaw, very strong, are rather curved profile. The body of the mandible, well pointed forward, put in evidence the marked chin. The incisors are in a straight line in September.

Skin: the lower margin of the neck is devoid of dewlap Practically.
  2. TRUNK compact, robust and very muscular. Its length Exceeds the height at withers of 11%, with a tolerancing of + or – 1%. Topline: Straight dorsal lumbar region slight convexity. Cruz: If you raise Cleary on the dorsal plan and Exceeds the level of the croup. I is tall, long, wide, tense and blends harmoniously the neck and back With. Back: The back is large, muscular, upper torso as The entire line slightly upward from back to front and has a strictly straight profile. Its length Reaches 32% of the height at the withers. Loin: the lumbar region is short, wide, well Collected with back and muscle very, very solid croup and has a slightly convex profile. Its length is slightly greater than the width corresponds to 20% of the height at withers. Croup: long, wide, well rounded for the great development of muscle mass. Their width, Measured from the tip of the haunch to the point of buttock, corresponds to 32% of the height at withers. Its inclination on the horizontally as the ileo-ischial line is 28 ° / 30 ° and from the tip of the haunch to the insertion of the tail is 15 ° / 16 °. THEREFORE it slightly inclined. Chest: Broad, well let down and open, with very developed pectoral muscles. Its width, in close relation to the width of the thorax, Reaches 35% of the height at withers. The handle of the sternum is at the same level of the tip of the shoulders. Profile chest stands well

Between the forward and artos front is slightly convex. Chest: well developed in three dimensions with long, oblique ribs, wide and fairly well rounded With extensive interspaces. 4 floating ribs are long, oblique and open. The chest is well let down to the elbow and Its height corresponds to half the height at the withers. Its width, at half of ITS Measured height, corresponds to 35% of the height at withers and Decreases slightly towards the sternum without forming a ridge. Its depth (sagittal diameter) Corresponding to 55% of the height at withers. Perimeter Exceeds 35% of the height at withers. Lower profile: sternal tract OCCURS clean, length, width and profile draws a wide half circle radius caudally leaves sweet way to the abdomen. The ventral tract is neither withdrawn nor relaxed profile and leaves from the sternal edge in the groin a sweet curve. Cavity flank is slightly pronounced. Tail: Inserted quite high on the line of the croup, thick at the root and at the tip Relatively tuned, if Reaches and Exceeds almost extended the hock. If Carried low at rest, horizontal or slightly higher action, you need not be curved or ring shaped never Carried candela. It is amputated at the 4th vertebra.

  1. MEMBERS 7.1 Previous members Aplombos Regular profile is Observed That front. The height of the above artos elbow is 50% of the height at withers. Well proportioned to the format of the dog, strong and robust. Scapula: Long, oblique, strong, chunky long, powerful, well spaced and different muscles, are adherent to the thorax but free in movement. Its length, the sum of the cross point of shoulder, Corresponding to 30% of the height at withers and Its inclination on the plane horizontally oscillates around 48 ° -50 °. Respect to the median plane of the body the tips of the shoulders are slightly open Between them. Arm (humerus): the arm slightly longer scapulae, strong, with optimal bone and muscle development, lying close to the trunk in Its two upper Thirds Measured from the tip of the scapula to the point of elbow, you have a length Corresponding to 31 -32% of the height at withers and an inclination With the Horizontal plane of About 58 ° / 60 °. Its longitudinal direction is parallel to the median plane of the body. The angle-humeral exhaust Between 106 ° and 110 °. Elbows long, very prominent, well bonded but not tight to the side walls, Covered with sticky skin, should, as flues, found in a strictly sagittal plane parallel to the trunk. The tip of the elbow (olecranon epiphysis) is located in the down flow angle vertically (or later) of the scapula to the ground. Forearm perfectly vertical, to, well muscled Particularly in the upper third, with very strong and compact bone structure oval section. Its length from the tip of the elbow to the first carpal joint, is slightly higher than the 32-33% arm corresponds to the height at withers of. The ulnar carpus-Seam is marked.

The axis of the femur, is quite obliquely from top to bottom and from back to front, you have an inclination of 70% on the horizontal plane and the axis of the With the innominate slightly more than a right angle (angle hip).

Leg: The leg is long, lean, with strong bones and muscles: the leg seam is well evidenced. Its length corresponds to 32% of the height at withers and tilt up and down and front to be late 50% on the the horizontal plane. Femoro-patellar knee angle is warm About 120 °. Its direction is parallel to the median plane of the body. wide, thick, dry, clean, well evident bony protuberances hock. The hock is well pronounced and Cleary shows the continuation of the seam of the leg. The distance from the hock to the foot (the ground) must not Exceed 26% of the height at withers. Its direction relative to the midplane of the body is parallel. Tibio-tarsal the angle is About 140 °. Metatarsus of high density, thin, short Relatively, cylindrical, and always perpendicular to the ground, is subsequently profile. Its length corresponds to About 15% of the height at the withers (tarsus and exclusos foot). The inside must be free of spurs. Pie: Slightly more oval than the previous one, has less arched phalanxes.

  1. MOVEMENT Striding, but Gallop Trot elongated gesture propensity With elongated trot.
