Rasestandard endres

Rasestanderen for Old English Sheepdog forandres i England etter den hete debatten om hundeutstillinger og avl.

Også for Old English Sheepdog er det noen endringer i henhold til dagens rasestandard. Det er foreløpig følgende tre endringer i en interim standard som gjelder frem til juni 2009.

Hindquarters: Loin very sturdy, broad and gently arched, quarters well covered round and muscular, the second thigh is long and well developed, the stifle well turned but not exaggerated, and the hocks set low. When viewed from behind, the rear pasterns should be parallel, [delete ‘From the rear the hocks should be quite straight’] with the feet turning neither in nor out.

Dette er allerede tatt ut av den norske standarden. I den danske standarden heter det at: Set bagfra skal mellemfoden være helt lige. Dagens norske oversettelse sier:

Baklemmer:
Helhetsinntrykk: Lårpartiet muskuløst og godt rundet. Lår: Muskuløst og bredt.
Knær: Velvinklet.
Underlår: Langt og velutviklet.
Haser: Lavt ansatte. Parallelle sett bakfra, verken inn- eller utoverdreide.
Poter: Som forpotene.

Feet: delete reference to removal of dewclaws.

Det skal ikke lenger stå i standarden at sporer skal fjernes.

Coat: [Delete ‘Profuse,’] Of good harsh texture, not straight, but shaggy and free from curl. Undercoat of waterproof pile. Head and skull well covered with hair, ears moderately coated, neck well coated, forelegs well coated all round, hindquarters more heavily coated than rest of body. Quality, texture, and profusion to be considered above mere length.

Pelsen skal ikke lenger være “rikelig”, men bare av god stri struktur.

The Kennel Club vil også at alle rasestandarder skal begynne med følgende introduksjon:

A Breed Standard is the guideline which describes the ideal characteristics, temperament and appearance of a breed and ensures that the breed is fit for function. Absolute soundness is essential. Breeders and judges should at all times be careful to avoid obvious conditions or exaggerations which would be detrimental in any way to the health, welfare or soundness of this breed. From time to time certain conditions or exaggerations may be considered to have the potential to affect dogs in some breeds adversely, and judges and breeders are requested to refer to the Kennel Club website for details of any such current issues. If a feature or quality is desirable it should only be present in the right measure.
