1. Judges Critique 2012 AHCA National Specialty
In awarding Mowgli BOB at the 2012 AHCA National Specialty, Judge Mrs H W Stein wrote -
"Best of Breed — I looked for the qualities outlined in
our breed standard.
Clearly an aristocrat, his whole appearance one of
dignity and aloofness. A beautiful head with beautiful
chiseling on his strong muzzle and the exotic expression
that IS The Afghan Hound. He has the features that
make our breed so distinctive —
A long silky topknot
A long, low set tail with ring or curve at the end
An exotic or Eastern expression. A peculiar coat
pattern with fabulous silky texture and a
A square appearance
He is a wonderful athletic dog, presented in hard,
sound physical condition, a dog of proper size and with
sound, powerful, effortless movement.
He has a strong topline that is level when he is standing,
and level when he is moving. He moves with head and
tail high and knows that he is the King of Dogs." Mrs H W Stein
