Head, Eyes & Ears
The head of a Dwarf Hotot is bold with a good width between the eyes. Its muzzle should be well filled and round in all directions, and the head attached to the body with no visible neck. The ears of a Dwarf Hotot are short and well furred, and slightly rounded at the tips. The ears are erect and well set. The eyes have a narrow, well defined band of colored fur, usually a rich black as dark as possible, forming a complete outline of the eye, called the “eye band”.
The body of a Dwarf Hotot should be short, compact and well rounded. It should be uniformly wide from shoulder to hips, with well rounded hindquarters. The topline should have a very slight, gradual curve from the ear base to the highest point over the hips, and then fall in a smooth curve to the base of the tail. A Dwarf Hotot ideally should ideally weigh around 2.5 pounds.
The fur is soft, dense, fine and of good lustre.
