CH Buffrey Incognito By Dalleaf JW

Pet Name: Seb

Co-Owned By Myself & Miss Stevie Baker

Born: 30 March 2015

Show Critiques:

Driffield Show - Judge Ernie Paterson

1st in Minor Puppy & Puppy & Best Puppy Dog

Buffrey Incognito by Dalleaf, an exciting prospect to start off with, black at his first show & looked the part. Still raw of course but bone on for size, deep pigment & bold spotting. Lovely expression. Well off for bone & great feet, firm topline & tail right off back. Excellent quarters & very positive on the move. BPD, one to watch

South Wales KC - Judge Albert Wright

2nd In Minor Puppy & 1st In Puppy Dog

Buffrey Incognito by Dalleaf, another rather classy looking youngster which also has promise. He too is a good size with a very nice head, eyes & expression. He has just about enough neck, is well bodied & angulated, especially in hindquarters. Shown in gleaming coat he moved around the ring with some style but not quite with the steady precision of the winner

Midland Counties - Judge Christine Lewis

1st in Minor Puppy & Puppy & Best Puppy Dog

Mature dog, well balanced with strong bone, good topline held well on the move, correct bold b/s

North Of England Dalmatain Club Open Show - Judge Mike Gilchrist

1st in Minor Puppy, Novice & Maiden Dog

Very promising 7 mth old, which as he stands at present, presents a good outline, but obviously for his age he has much maturing to do. Good width to skull without being coarse, clearly masculine, good balance to skull and muzzle. Possesses the depth to the chest needed for this breed and is nicely ribbed back and topline is as it should be. Pleases on the move, but has not quite got the control of his movement at all times, can be a shade over enthusiastic, very much a baby at present but I was left in no doubt that he should mature in to a very eye catching adult

BUBA - Judge Mr M Cleland

1st Minor Puppy & Puppy Dog

This puppy set the standard of the day, gentle expression, conformation showed fit for purpose. Correct angulation, balanced with level topline & great tailset, moved smoothly with free flowing drive from rear, striking white & dense black decoration, showed tremendous promise of things to come. BPD


Boston - Judge Time Ball

2nd in Puppy

Another very nice black & close up to the winner. Undoubtedly male yet retaining elegance. Strong neck of good length, well defined withers, level topline, good depth of brisket & nice strong loin. Well constructed with well laid shoulders, elbows held close to the body, straight well boned forelegs, good feet & well muscled hindquarters of correct angulation. Excellent spotting on a pure white ground colour. Nicely proportioned head with dark eyes & ears framing face. Moving cleanly all through but felt the winner just had the edge in profile action

Manchester - Judge Mr H Ogden

1st Puppy Dog + Best Puppy In Breed + Group 4 In Group

9 months, loved his head & eye, such striking spotting on pure white ground, clean front, balanced angles, cat feet, capacious body. Then he moved! Here was real use of hocks to propel himself forward with long, smooth strides & maintaining a classic outline. One surely destined to take on the best. BP & puppy group 4th placing; 


BDC Open Show - Judge: Eric Russell

1st Puppy Dog + Best Puppy Dog

10 month Black dog with strong black markings on pure white coat. Excellent front, giving plenty of chest room and moved with drive keeping level top line on the move. Good bend of stifle Best Puppy Dog


Joint Dalmatian Club Champ Show - Judge: Theresa Gardinor

1st In Puppy Dog, Best Puppy Dog & Reserve Best Puppy In Show

A striking black spotted dog with good pigmentation, lovely head with a kind expression and correct ear carriage. He has a good reach of neck into well defined withers and level topline, overall a lovely outline. On the move he covered the ground well with good even strides but he did carry his tail a little high on the move. Best Puppy Dog.

1st Junior Dog

loved the overall style & balance of this dog, with his lovely head & expression, nice width of skull, good reach of neck, well laid shoulders & short back, strong hindquarters which he uses so well on the move, wish he didn't carry his tail so high but he moves so well covering the ground easily. He's a star;

Scottish Kennel Club 2016 Judged by Andrew Brace

2nd Junior Dog

13 months, no mistaking his sex & in pristine condition. Masculine head but in no way coarse, slightly darker eye would enhance expression. A little softer in topline than 1 & needs to develop in forechest as he should with maturity. Moves with great power, slightly high tail carriage; 

Bath Ch Show Judge: Mrs Elaine Tillson

2nd Junior Dog

food deep b/s, lovely dark eye. Shorter coupled than 1 & heavier in shoulder. Excellent bone, level topline with correct tailset but for some reason he was tending to carry his tail high on the move. Well handled

Southern Courties Judge Mr Jeff Horswell

1st Junior Dog and RCC

masculine dog with elegance. Correct proportions. Fair length of neck, could be cleaner over the shoulders. Good legs & feet. Well sprung rings carried back to a short loin. Form topline. Well angulated & muscled up rear. Very good mover, could carry his tail lever so slightly lower. One of the better fronts

East Of England Judge Barry Day

1st Junior Dog & DCC


1 Neath-Duggan & Baker’s Buffrey Incognito by Dalleaf, a beautifully balanced dog who showed his socks off & moved soundly. Quality head with a lovely expression, & a nicely arched neck that flowed well through the shoulders into a good topline. Good depth of body with nice tight elbows. Nicely muscled quarters with a good second thigh, well let down hocks & good tight feet. Well marked, he filled the eye both standing & on the move & while he is still to fulfil his full potential, I felt he deserved the CC today

Leeds Judge Pat Wilson

1st Junior Dog

A very showy dog with deep pigment, good bone ,well filled front and deep chest with plenty of heart and lung room. His topline is firm with the correct slight rise over his loin. He has a masculine head without any coarseness. On the move he used his well developed hindquarters to drive around the ring

Paignton Judge Ed Casey

2nd Junior Dog

Stronger more masculine dog black spotted dog, boldly marked, strong in back skull & a little heavy in ears. Pleasing eye shape & colour, lip line could be tighter. Strong neck, excellent bone & feet, moderately angulated front, body of enough depth, well ribbed short strong loin, strong well developed quarters with second thigh well developed

Bournmouth Judge Mark Coccozza

1st Junior Dog & DCC

excellent & exciting dog, super clean outline, excellent balance& construction, good head, eye & ears, excellent neck, shoulders & topline, excels on the move in profile. Just needs to tighten up with age but outstanding young dog; 


WKC Judge Sarah Dandy

1st Junior Dog

Stylish youngster with attractive B/W spotting and presented in a fit, honed condition. Took my eye and commanded the ring with his confident ring presence. Standing over a lot of ground but presenting a clean outline with lots to like. Delightful masculine head with good skull proportions, ear set and pigmentation. A reach of neck flowing into an excellent clean wither and firm topline. Has a good length of body with strong loin, balanced well angulated quarters, standing on good legs and feet with strong pasterns and well let down hocks used to effect on the move. Impressive mover with plenty of forward reach and drive covering the ground effortlessly. A real showman who makes the most of himself. Pushed my top winners hard today, extremely close decision. 

City Of Birmingham Judge Mr A Easdon

2nd Junior Dog

Richmond Judge Mrs Donna Whincup

1st Junior Dog

Crisp white coat with the blackest spots, Ghost face with a coal black eye, dark ears framed his well balanced head, Great length to his neck, in to shoulders well laid back, elbows tight to his chest, would like a little more width to his brisket, straight front legs sat on good cat feet ,topline straight and strong, with tail on the stand straight off his back, hocks well let down, moved free and handled to perfection, when he matures I am hoping he will carry his tail a little lower when on the move as this spoils his over all line.

nice head, good eye colour, nice reach of neck, good front, moved well with good length of stride, well handled & presented, lots to like about this dog, will do well in the future
