Agreed. VERY nice!

For a female, I believe Zefra (19 months) has a nice strong, yet feminine head.













This is a male (left) of similar age (1 month younger) - he is pure WG lines, and Zefra is 1/2 Czech, 1/4 DDR, 1/4 WG working.

I love this one Carmen posted in another thread, Carmspack Beau


In fact I also really like this one on her site, Carmspack Petro


I do like a good bit of stop and a strong muzzle but the head itself doesn't have to be giant, should be proportionate to the body. I don't necessarily care that the entire face/mask is all black, but I like strong black pigment on the muzzle and some mantel (or whatever it's called) as these two dogs above illustrate. For me the heads and the overall look/conformation is very "classic", would love to have a clone of either dog

Ruger's Head. Slightly wide set ears but very dark mask. I think he looks very west german working line.

There's something about Zefra's head that makes me think of some of the Belgian GSDs I've seen. I think it's the "high 'n' tight" ears and that the hair around her neck is fairly short, so she doesn't have much of a ruff.

I love Coal's head, although he could be slightly broader through the muzzle.



When he was a young dog (3 years old), his lips were all tight and firm:




And as a 9 year old:



Note that his eye color is a pretty dark mahogany--in all the pictures but the last one, the sun is highlighting his eyes, which allows them to be seen in the pictures. I think the last picture best represents his "real life" eye color.

Xita's head is probably a bit too coarse for a bitch--typical DDR type, though, and I have to admit I love it. She's the mother to the sable bitch I posted before (Oda)--who has a different head shape than her mother.



Profile from the airport, the day I got her:


Although, mostly, she's just a big cutehead:

I'm not an expert, but I'm going to stick my 2 cents in anyway.

This is Robin Huerta's VP1 Paris von Huerta Hof.



This is the perfect GSD head IMO. I think this particular female is feminine but just as strong and formidable looking as any male. Her head is not overdone, or lacking in anything.

Hope you dont mind me using your girl as my example, Robin.
