STANDARD

FAULTS

THE HEAD

Should be of fair length, the skull flat and rather broad between the ears and should be free from wrinkles when in repose to the occiput bone. The stop should be defined and not in one straight line from the nose. The dog head is stronger looks more masculine as a bitch’s head, which is more refines and softer in expression and should look more feminine. Undesirable bullmastiff or narrow head


THE MUZZLE AND MOUTH

Long, deep and powerful, jaws level and strong with well developed teeth, especially the canines or holders. The lips clean, close fitting the jaws.  


THE EYES

Moderately well apart and should be round, bright and sparkling, with intelligent expression, their color harmonizing with the color of the dog. Eyes which are lighter than coat color are too light.


THE EARS

Should be set on rather high, of medium size, rather wide at the base and gradually tapering to a rounded point. Carried close to the head.  


THE NOSE

Should be black but a lighter color is admissible if it is in keeping with the color of the dog. A spotted nose is incorrect, but is not a disqualification.  


THE NECK

The neck should be fairly long, strong and from throatiness.  


SHOULDERS

The shoulders should be sloping, clean and muscular, denoting speed.  



THE BODY, BACK, CHEST AND LOINS

The chest should not be too wide, but very deep and capacious, ribs moderately well sprung, never rounded like barrel hoop; the back powerful; and loins strong, muscular and slightly arched. A level top line.  


FOREQUARTERS

The fore legs should be perfectly straight, strong and heavy in bone, elbows close to the body.  


LEGS AND FEET

Fore feet round, compact, with well arched toes, round tough elastic pads, protected by hair between the toes and pads.  


HINDQUARTERS

In the hind legs the muscles should be clean, though well defined, moderate turn of stifle and the hocks well let down.  


THE TAIL

Not be too strong; strong at the roots but gradually tapering towards the end, free from coarseness. It should not be inserted too low down or too high, but carried with a slight curve upwards and never curled. A short tail is a blemish, but not a disqualification. Tail curve upwards over the body spoil the outline of the dog.

RIDGE

Two identical crowns only symmetrically opposite each other. Approximate average wide is 5 centimeters.  

THE COAT

Short, hard, dense and fine, sleek and glossy in appearance, but neither woolly nor silky.  

COLORS

Light wheaten or red wheaten (from light biscuit to rich medium brown).Head, body, legs and tail of uniform color. A little white on chest permissible. White toes, dark muzzle and ears permissible. The color looks uniform but in fact different parts of the body are shaded. White coat on belly or above paws undesirable. Weimaraner color is appearing sometimes and is wrong.
