Typically trotting race. Powerful bone structure, rectangular and compact, though well-proportioned and harmonious whole. Along with his body, presents a large concentrated and easily perceptible agility. Females must present a well observable femininity that distinguishes them clearly from males.
• Muzzle slightly shorter than the skull.
• The length of the body, measured from the tip of the breastbone to the tip of the buttock, is equal to the height at the cross plus 10 per cent.
TEMPERAMENT / BEHAVIOR:
It has remarkable courage, determination and verve. With their masters and the family is docile, obedient and extremely tolerant with children. His faithfulness is notorious, because you are looking for with insistence the company of their masters. One of its features is to be distrustful with strangers.
It is quiet in nature, which reveals a security and self-confidence very own character. It adapts perfectly well to new environments and strange noises. It is a special guardian of the properties, and is, by instinct, a dog with grazing for cattle, as well as also a Hunter of large animals.
Look, expression: during rest, is calm, noble and sure of himself. Never displays a look of boredom or loss. When attentive, its expression must show determination, which translates into a fixed and penetrating look.
Large, heavy, solid, but always well-proportioned body. Seen from above, it seems a Trapeze in which had been inserted pear-shaped head.
Skull: Your profile presents a smooth curve, which extends from the depression naso-frontal until the occipital Protuberance, which is marked and outgoing, especially in puppies. From the front, it is wide, with a curved top line. Their lateral lines descend into curves little pronounced, almost vertically, and decrease in the direction of the muzzle in a continuous line.
Depression (Stop) naso-frontal: Front view, it is practically non-existent. The median Groove climbs gently almost halfway into the skull. View of profile, is poorly marked, inclined and is almost formed thanks to the superciliares arcades which are well developed.
Truffle: Windows of the nose, wide, well developed, but not occupy the entire width of the jaw. His color is black.
Snout: Strong, wide, prominent, always in proportion to the skull. Good prominence at the base, without being higher than that long. Seen from above, it is well filled under the eyes and very slightly thins halfway, widening then slightly until the previous curve. Seen in profile, the nasal barrel presents a topline straight or slightly arched, but never ascending. The above line is almost perpendicular to the nasal pipe, with a slight depression just below the truffle.
Lips: The upper lip is thick and pendant and covers to the bottom in a perfect curve: the bottom line of the snout is thus almost parallel to the superior. The lower lip is well applied to the region of tusks; from there is loose to back, with “toothed” edges, and ends with the corner always apparent. The edge of the lips is one or inverted deep.
JAWS / teeth: The teeth are characterized by being wider than long. They are strong and white. The incisors are wider at the root and sharp on the edges. The tusks are strong, are well placed in the jaw and are separated. Ideal joint is in the form of scissors, but he is accepted in the form of clamp joint.
Eyes: Medium to large, almendrados, separated and placed in medium way to deep. Its color ranges from chestnut to yellow, always in harmony with the color of the fur. Since the skin is loose, many copies are hanging eyelids, detail which do not as a lack, as this emphasizes the sad aspect of the gaze, typical of the breed.
Ears: Hanging, thick, large, v-shaped thick at the root, lower extremities, which are rounded. Inserted in the back of the skull, occur at the height of the midline of the eyes, when the dog is at rest, and rise above the primitive ligament when it is attentive. The ears are inclined in the ligament, anterior edge is higher than the later. There are hanging to one side or folded backwards, so that the inside is visible (Pink).
Extremely strong and muscular, it seems short. The upper edge is slightly convex, well separated from the skull. Presence of Chin.
Trunk strong, broad and high, covered by a thick, loose skin. The thorax is longer than the abdomen.
Superior margin: The height to the cross is slightly lower than the rump, in descending line; It is wide, due to the separation of the pining. In the place where the cross is completed, the top line changes direction, climbing gently to the anterior part of the rump, without any sign of a back agalgada or arched (back of Carpus).
Loin and flank: Less long and expansive than the chest. They are clearly separated. In the female, the edge from the flank is more developed. Seen from above, the loin should be less comprehensive and less full than the thorax and the rump, but without giving samples of narrowness.
Grupa: Wide, long, its obliquity is approaching 30 degrees to the horizontal and ends in a smooth curve. It is a little higher than the cross. Viewed from behind, it must be broad, an almost equal to the chest size, and it may be even wider in females.
Chest: Ribs well arched, though without affecting the position of the shoulders. The chest is broad and well bent, reaches the tip of the elbows; the pectorals are either prominent.
Margin-bottom: The chest is long and is parallel to the ground in its entirety. Belly rises gently and is never agalgado.
Wide root and median placement. It becomes thinner quickly to conclude in the level of the hock. When the dog is excited, tail lifts, thus accentuating the curvature of the limb. The tail should not fall on your back and screwing is.
The height of the previous member, from the elbow to the ground, must be equal to the height from the elbow to the cross.
Shoulders: The shoulder and the arm must be composed of two bones of a same length, scapula and humerus. The scapula forms an angle of 45 ° to the horizontal, and the humerus approximately 90 ° with the scapula. The joint escápulo-humeral forms the tip of the shoulder, which must be found at the tip of the breastbone, slightly behind it. In the ideal case, the shoulder and arm should be positioned in the space that goes from the cross to the sternum, and the tip of the shoulder should be set to half of this path. A perpendicular imaginary that descends from the cross should cross the elbow and reach the foot.
Forearm: Members must be parallel. The bones are strong and straight.
Wrist: Strong and apparent.
Metacarpos: short, slightly sloping.
Feet: They consist of fingers strong and well arched, but not too close together. The support is done on bearings wide, long, and thick and thick fingers. In the correct position, the fingers should be aimed towards the front. The nails are strong, dark, and can be white when the corresponding finger is also.
The bones are not as thick as previous members, however as a whole, should never seem thin. The hindlimbs are parallel.
Thighs: Wide edge arched, because they are formed by muscles that descend of the ilium, the ischium. They shape the curve of the buttock, why it is necessary to require an ischium of good dimensions.
Tarsus: are strong.
Metatarsals: Slightly inclined, longer than the metacarpos; the angle of the stifle and the Hock is moderate.
Feet: A little more oval than the previous ones and similar to these in everything else. There should be no presence of spurs.
Step length and elastic, as the cats. Its main feature is the displacement of the two members of one side, then move to the two of the other side, ‘camel step’ or amble. This produces a swagger, with a lateral sway of the chest and the legs, accentuated by the tail when it is raised. When the dog goes to step their head stays under the dorsal line. The trot is easy, harmonious, loose, with broad and powerful strides that cover the ground well.
The Gallop is powerful and with it the dog reaches an unsuspected speed into an animal so great and of such weight. Its displacement is always influenced by the typical joints of the trotting, which not only give the impression that effectively allow rapid and sudden changes in direction.
One of the most important features of the race is that the skin should be thick and loose on all trunk, mainly on the neck, where forms papadas pronounced, that in many cases, they reach the chest and the abdomen. Some dogs have a fold to the sides of the head and another that descends from the cross to the shoulder. During sleep, the head must not show folds; When the dog is alert, the contraction of the skin of the skull, which is formed when the dog lifts his ears, makes appear between these small longitudinal folds on the skull.
Short, dense, soft and well stretched over the body.
All uniform colors with the exception of the descalificables color, are allowed mottled with uniform color background and more or less dark streaks. You can have or not the presence of a black mask. All permitted colors white markings on feet, chest and tip of the tail is accepted. The white spots on the rest of the fur constitute a lack.
