He is extremely eye catching and demands attention. No difference at the shows. If he isn't part of the deal he screams the show ground down.
We are a little proud of the young man, winning his first BOB at just six months of age against older dogs and his brother. Reaching his title in six months all under competition, only lost one BOB under that time.
This despite his colour, black, which is frown upon by the "old timers".
Black is accepted in the standard and if judges are doing the right thing, he should be judged on his conformation and type. If another dog with same attributes or better and with a more acceptable colour is shown, yes, I expect that dog to be placed ahead.
