My View of RR Breed Essence: 

A formidable, tremendously courageous hunter and loyal protector, deceptively packaged as the most laid-back of companions and sporting a ridge "scar" as a reminder to avoid sharp claws. 


My Standard Synopsis :

A moderately sized hound conveying endurance, strength and agility in a short, sleek, tight-fitting skin of various hues of browns. Rectangular head, triangular ears, round eyes. A balanced body appearing slightly longer than tall and a distinctive "sword" of forward growing hair lying with it's tip at the loin end and the "hilt" behind the withers. Legs with substance but never clunky nor slight of bone. Well knuckled toes, thick, tough pads. Ending with a tail flowing off the stern with a 
bit of a jaunty curve upwards.
