Long skull..short face

Ears....."...as far from the eyes as possible..."

"..viewed from the front, it should appear very high from the corner of the corner of the lower jaw to the apex of the skull..."

"..viewed at the side, the head should appear very high, and very short from the point of the nose to the occiput......."

Don't let that sentence freak you out.. it is just saying we want a long skull AND a nose that is as close to the back of the head as possible...

Most other breeds are long from the point of nose to the occiput. Not our Bulldogs (or any of the brachycephalics).

The word "high" here is indicating length..

Length is in the skull.. the face is short, not the entire head.

Are you referring to the last bitch that I posted of the profile.. or the last bitch in the set of pictures I posted?
