Muzzle : the upper part of the muzzle is rectilinear, the measure from the point the nose to the line joining the eyes internal angles is 4 cm. The muzzle has a rapezoidal form and its average length is 4 cm at its beginning and only 3 cm at its end.

The nose is prominent, wide if compared to the muzzle’s end, the nostrils are very open and the drain of the fore extremity of the nasal partition is well marked but must not divide the nose in two. Of profile, the upper face of the nose appears slightly oblique upwards, thus raising the terminal portion of the upper line of the muzzle. The nose must be strongly black pigmented.

According to the standard, the muzzle that is square is objectionable. This indicates that the muzzle should be on the narrow rather than wide side. However the mouse should be level but slightly undershot is preferable to overshot which rejects a tapering snippy muzzle. The correct muzzle is both narrow and blunt in shape.
