HEAD 3.jpg

Wrinkled when alert only, no wrinkle anywhere under the eyes, over the nose or on the side of the nose/muzzle going into the jowl.  Too long in the jowl and the bottom eyelid can drag down so that the dog shows haw or a diamond bottom lid. Too many wrinkles can cause skin irritation and dermatitis, especially in warm weather.

 
  • Long and short ears
