Head broad, round, wide between eyes. Shock-headed with hair falling well over eyes, not affecting the dog’s ability to see. Good beard and whiskers, hair growing upwards on the muzzle giving distinct ‘chrysanthemum-like’ effect. Muzzle of ample width, square, short, not wrinkled, flat and hairy. Nose black but dark liver in liver or liver marked dogs and about one inch from tip to definite stop. Nose level or slightly tip-tilted. Top of nose leather should be on a line with or slightly below lower eye rim. Wide-open nostrils. Down pointed nose highly undesirable, as are pinched nostrils. Pigmentation of muzzle as unbroken as possible.
