Points and standard, as given by the Black-and-Tan Terrier Club. Secretary, Mr. S. J. Atkinson, 184, Adelaide Road, London, N.W. Head. - Long, flat, and narrow, level and wedge-shaped, without showing cheek muscles, well filled up under the eyes, with tapering, tightly-lipped jaws and level teeth. Eyes. - Very small, sparkling, and dark, set fairly close together, and oblong in shape. Nose. - Black. Ears. - Small and V-shaped, hanging close to the head above the eye. Neck and Shoulders. - The neck should be fairly long, and tapering from the shoulders to the head, with sloping shoulders, the neck being free from throatiness, and slightly arched at the occiput. Chest. - Narrow, but deep. Body. - Moderately short, and curving upwards at the loin; ribs well sprung; back slightly arched at the loin, and falling again at the joining of the tail to the same height as the shoulders. Legs. - Must be quite straight, set on well under the dog, and of fair length. Feet. - More inclined to be cat than hare-footed. Tail. - Moderate length, and set on where the arch of the back ends, thick where it joins the body, tapering to a point, and not carried higher than the back. Coat. - Close, smooth, short, and glossy.

Colour. - Jet black and rich mahogany tan, distributed over the body as follows: On the head the muzzle is tanned 'to; the nose, which with the nasal bone, is jet black; there is also a bright tan spot on each cheek and a.above each eye the trader jaw and throat are tanned, and the hair inside the ear is of the same colour. The forelegs tanned up to the knee, with black lines (pencil marks) up each toe, and a black mark (thumb mark) above the foot. Inside the hindlegs tanned, but divided with black at the hock joint, and under the tail also tanned, and so is the vent, but only sufficiently to be easily covered by the tail; also slightly tanned on each side of chest. Tan outside of hindlegs, commonly called "breeching," a serious defect. In all cases the black should not run into the tan, or vice versa, but the division between the two colours should be well defined. General Appearance. - A terrier, calculated to take his own part in the rat-pit, and not of the whippet type. Weight [for toys). - Not exceeding 7 lbs.
