Disregarding hair, the head is small and fine with a slightly domed skull. The eyes should be medium
sized and dark brown with a lively expression. The ears are set on below the level of the skull, medium sized, pendant and
covered with long hair. The tongue should be bright red and the jaws and teeth strong with a complete scissor bite. The neck
should be tight-skinned and muscular and when fully coated appears to merge with the body. The forelegs are straight and muscular
and the hindlegs strong and well muscled. The back should be medium length and the withers slightly higher than the level
of the back. The feet are short, round and tight, with the hind being slightly longer than the front. The tail is medium length
and curled tightly over the rump-loin area. The correct proportion of top and undercoat will naturally create the desired
cords. Matting and felting should be avoided and a combed coat is as undesirable as a neglected one. Some dogs will grow a
floor-length coat, which is acceptable. They can be black, grey, white or apricot/fako in colour.
Grey and Apricot are not permitted in the FCI standard.
