 Group  Group 1 Toys
 General Appearance  Toy dog standing less than 30cm tall.  The head carriage is proud and hig; the coast falling soft, corkscrew curls.
 Characteristics  Lively little dog, with eyes alert and full of expression.
 Temperament  Gay and happy.
 Head And Skull  The skull longer than the muzzle, the whole head in balance with the body.  The muzzle should not be thick or heavy; nor should it be snipy; the cheeks flat and not very strongly muscled; the stop should be slight and the hollow between the eyebrows just visible.  Skull flat when touched, although the hair tends to make it look round.  The nose should be round, black, soft and shiny.  The lips should be fine, fairly tight and completely black, drooping just sufficiently for the lower lips to be covered by the upper, but never heavy nor hanging.  The lower lip should be neither heavy, protruding nor flappy andshouldl never show the mucous membrane when the mouth is closed.
 Eyes  Dark, with dark eye-rims, fairly round, never almond shaped not obliquely set; lively, not too big; never showing any white.  Neither large nor prominent.  The socket should not be pronounced.
 Ears  Narrow and delicate.  Hanging close to the head and well covered with tightly curled, long hair.  Carried forward when the dog is alert but in such a manner that the forward edge touches the skull and not carried obliquely away from the head.  The leather should reach halfway along the muzzle.
 Mouth  Scissor bite, that is to say, the incisors of the lower jaw should be placed immediately behind and in contact with those of the upper jaw.
 Neck  Fairly long, carried high and proudly.  Round and slim near the head, gradually broadening to fit smoothly into the shoulders.  Length about one thrid the length of the body (proportions of 33cm - 11cm for a dog of 27cm high at the withers.).
 Forequarters  Shoulders oblique, not prominent, and equal in length to the upper arm (approx 10cm).  The upper arm should fit close to the body.  Legs straight when seen from the front, perpendicular and finely boned.  The pastern should be short and straight when viewed from the front, very slightly sloping when viewed from the side.
 Body  Chest well developed, with deep brisket.  The floating ribs well rounded and not terminating abruptly.  Loin broad, well muscled, slightly arched and well tucked-up.  The pelvis broad, the croup slightly rounded.
 Hindquarters  Thighs broad and well-muscled, oblique.  Stifles well bent and hocks well let down.
 Feet  Small, rounded and well knuckled-up.  Nails preferably black.
 Tail  Normally carried raised and curled gracefully over the back but never tightly curled.  It should not be docked and should not touch the backbone but the hair should always fall onto the back.  Slightly low set.
 Gait / Movement  (Not detailed)
 Coat  Fine, silky, with soft corkscrew curls.  Neither flat nor corded, and measuring 7 - 10cm in length.  The dog may be presented untrimmed or have muzzle and feet slightly tidied up.  [In Australia the coat is usually trimmed to reveal the natural outline of the body.  It is rounded off from any direction and never cut so short as to create an overly trimmed or squared of appearance.]
 Colour  Pure White.  Under the white coat dark pigment is preferred.  Black, blue or beige markings are often found on the skin.
 Sizes  Height: Less than 30cm, smallness being highly desirable.
 Faults  Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness of the fault should be in exact proportion to its degree and its effect upon the health and welfare of the dog.
 Notes  Male animals should have two apparently normal tesicles fully descended into the scrotum.
