What I would do is find some shepherd experts around you. Ones that can really point things out to you about her conformation. It's really hard to do that on a picture because of angles and also stacking ability. Find a club that does conformation or a GSD club and someone in there will point out all her faults...seriously some of those people are really good at it. They'll explain to you certain angles and certain lengths that no one on here will really be able to tell you. I've been reading these threads for a long time, but until someone really pointed the terms out to me on my dog I had no idea what was going on.

Thanks for the advice! I definitely will look around for someone in the area that could help me understand the German Shepherd's conformation and point out her faults! Thanks again!

Very square female with flat withers, ok topline, good position of a croup that should be longer. Sufficient angulation front and rear. Good length of upper arm. OK pasterns and feet. Good pigment (black nose, eyes look dark, lips), but her color is extremely faded.

I took a few more recent photos of my girl, Sasha. She just turned a year old. I already know her color is a fault... any additional thoughts on her conformation? Thanks!

Nice tail, and nice dark eyes. (: I'm still learning so that's all I can say for sure right now. I must pull out my "Gsd Conformation print-outs." LOL!

Your dog has filled in nicely. Your stack is much better. Nice top and bottom line. Good front and rear angles. Short but nice croup. Pasterns look better. Color would be labeled a fault in AKC ring. Have you considered showing in the UKC shows?
