Shoulder height: male’s shoulder height range is 19-22 inches (48-56cm)

                             The female’s shoulder height ranges from 18 to 21 inches (46 to 53 cm).

The body length (the distance from the end of the shoulder blades to the hips) is slightly greater than the height at the shoulders. The bones are strong but not exaggerated, commensurate with the overall size. The overall balance of height, length, weight, and bone mass is vital, much more important than a single feature. Excess body weight should not be mistaken for muscle or bone mass. Any single feature that affects the overall balance will be considered a defect.
