SKULL - The skull should be slightly rounded, but not apple or domed. Cheeks are well developed... The original standard text, pertaining to the same areas: The head is proportionate to the size of the body. When viewed from the side, the muzzle is slightly shorter than the skull and joined by a definite stop. The planes of the skull and muzzle are parallel. SKULL - The skull is flat and moderately broad, tapering slightly toward the muzzle. Cheeks are well developed. MUZZLE - The muzzle is strong with powerful, muscular jaws. There is a minimum of falling away under the eye, giving a moderately chiseled look. Lips are tight and darkly pigmented. The F.C.I. Standard: HEAD CRANIAL REGION : Skull : The skull should be flat and of moderate width gradually decreasing in width to the eyes and tapering to a wide muzzle. Stop : Well defined but not over pronounced. FACIAL REGION : Nose : Black. Muzzle : The length from the stop to the nose should be slightly shorter than from the stop to the occiput.
