1. Buhund in natural habitat
2. Wheaten male and female of excellent type. There is a slight difference in ear carriage, both equally acceptable.
3. Black male and female.
Male and female ideals
4. Mature male. Notice how tightly the lips are fitting. This is ideal proportions for a male. Moderate angulation.
5. In spite of his somewhat too steep upper arm, this is the top winning buhund of all times, competing at the top for Dog of the year, all breeds, for several years running in the 80`s.
6. This is one of the best bitches I know of. Don|t let her standing in deep grass fool you as for proportions,- she is a perfectly square bitch. he has better angulation than the dogs. We do not want any MORE than this. She is what the club has decided to present in their jubilee book as the ideal bitch.
7.A young bitch, somewhat out of coat here, Junior World Winner in Helsinki.A bitch may be this much longer than a dog without loosing type.
8. Bitch head. Notice the alert expression!
9. Male head. Just as alert.Notice the tightly closing lips, straight bridge of nose and appr. equal length of skull to nose.
10. Male head, straight on. Notice the level set of eyes, the black eye rims and the black lips. No broken colour is permissable, nor brown. This head belongs to the dog in pict. 5.
11. This is the correct tail set,- on top of the back! and also how tightly the tail should be curled. It should at least be fully curled, sometimes even nearly doubly, a half circle with the tip resting on the back in front of the rest is not enough. Ideally, it should rest along the middle of the back, not tipping to one side or the other, but a slight deviation is ok. (see black dog in colour presentation, which is a little too much)
12. Thisis the most common colour, the pale wheaten which we call "blakk". This picture, taken slightly from the front, shows also the amount of forechest you should expect.
13. Red wheaten.This is an immature, young dog with slightly too little angualtion.
14. This is what they used to call "wolfcoloured" (varglet) but that name is now taken out of the standard, as it was too easy to interprete as a grey sable.There should be no tinge of grey in the coat, nor the undercoat. Basicly, it should be the same as the wheaten or red wheaten, but with black tips to the hairs,- i.e. a wheaten sable.
15. This is in fact a black champion male. It is slightly smaller and slighter than the wheatens, but with a very good, masculine head. Too steep! It is normal that the blacks have less ruff and a somewhat smoother coat all over. If there is white, his markings are ideal. No more is wanted. You are allowed a narrow collar, but we do not like it. The curl of his tails is far from ideal,- too loosely curled and carried too much to one side, but as long as the tail describes a full circle, it is not penalized.Notice his attitude! This is how a buhund should present itself, esp. the males,- alert, ready to spring into action. But when you approach them, they should be all wagging tail and hindquarters, and friendly grins, ears laid back, NEVER sharp, although they look pretty sharp, standing on their toes like that.
