Is my Athena a long stock or long coat?? Pics attached
So I guess my Athena who, in a few days will be 5 months, is finally starting to grow her hair. When I got her, she was suffering from a severe worming attack. As a result, her coat was dry and felt, for lack of a better word, dead to the touch. She was also super skinny too and hardly ate at all.
two months later, and she has gained weight, going from 17 pounds to almost 39 pounds in two months! Is her weight normal for her age (5 months)?
Also, her hair has began to grow considerably and is now a very rich thick coat with a bitch strip down the middle with a considerable parting down her spine. She also has the ear tufts of feathers since we got her. Oh, and she has a very thick, bushy, and feathery white (under the black) tail...it looks kinda weird to me!
According to what I read, will she be a long coat then??? Her coat isn't as long as other shepherds which were considered long coat, so I am a little confused.
Finally, I attached a pic of her belly, is that an undercoat or is she missing it, she hasn't been shedding that heavily yet, so I'm also confused!
