MUZZLE TO SKULL
- The beauty of the head depends upon the harmonious proportion of muzzle to skull. The blunt muzzle is 1/3 the length of the head from the occiput to the tip of the nose, and 2/3rds the width of the skull.
- The top of the skull is slightly arched, not rounded, flat, nor noticeably broad, with the occiput not overly pronounced.
- The forehead shows a slight indentation between the eyes and forms a distinct stop with the topline of the muzzle.
- The cheeks should be relatively flat and not bulge (cheekiness), maintaining the clean lines of the skull as they taper into the muzzle in a slight, graceful curve.
