For the male this width must be greater. Lips should be black, tight and close together.


Eyes :


The eyes are medium sized, almond-shaped, not prominent. They are as dark as possible, more or less nuanced depending on the coat. Light eyes are undesirable. The eyelids should not hang down (ectropion) or be inverted up (entropion). This is a disqualifying fault.

Angulations and gaits:


The angulations must be marked, which means that they must not be too open or too closed, in order to preserve a straight back. Gaits are examined from all points of view of the dog: anterior, posterior, right lateral and left lateral. They must be flexible and ample, the dog must not give the impression of forcing. The step is composed of a diagonal movement of the legs. The front leg and the opposite hind leg move at the same time. Their range is as long as each other. Incorrect gaits are considered faults.
