This breed, however, is smaller, the head is rectangular, with the muzzle and nose appearing strong. Their nose is black, and can be liver colour, with the liver coloured coats. This breed has small ears that are V shaped, and folded over. The eyes are oval and small. Their teeth meet in a level edge to edge, slightly overlapping scissor bite. With sturdy front legs that are straight when viewed from the front. This dogs' tail is docked, in countries that permit this, and is set high. This breed has a double coat with the outer coat being harsh and wiry and the undercoat being close to the skin, this is soft.

This breed is usually cut short on the body coat, to exaggerate the head, muzzle and legs. The colours we see, on the coat, are black, liver, red, blue and wheaten all of which are solid colours.
