Critique by Mrs Carmen Navarro, Bulldog specialist judge

 The specimen is wide, powerful and compact, with his head   wide and square, correct and well placed ears, the level of the layback correct. The jaws are strong, broad and square with good curvature - excellent underjaw with a beautiful upturn. The lips are thick, excellent covering of the upturn of the lower jaw, presenting a perfect mouth. His shoulders are wide with inclined shoulder blades and deep chest, taking the weight on both shoulders, presenting a perfect Bulldog roll so desired in the Bulldog movement. The top line, a distinctive feature of this breed, is correct, holding the head upright like a true monarch. His forehead is correct, conveying the impression of superior self-assurance. Its legs well-developed, with bone of good structure and substance, front legs apart and of good formation. The brisket deep and round, well let down between the forelegs, ribs well-rounded. Correct tail setting. The hind legs are strong and the hocks well let down. His fluid and correct movement with short, quick steps, exhibiting the correct rolling movement of the breed.
