Default back after 12 months - please critique

would appreciatte greatly any critiques - just for fun really. already been told my boy is "ugly and will never do any good in the show ring" i recovered emotionally from that.

sorry about video format - you tube cannot do still pics unless in a slideshow.


same pup is on another thread here when a few months old.

he is already way over standard in height and weight - i like him, not a dog to mess around with.

last pic is the best stack i think minus the sock in mouth.

I really like him. Overall he looks very balanced and athletic. He has a nice front with good angulation, very nice topline. I personally think his croup and rear end are to die for (I'm not really an expert, JMO.) He has nice tight feet and nice pasterns. I can't really find anything bad to say about him except that I'm not nuts about oversized dogs in general, but he is nicely proportioned and doesn't look oversized in the pics to me. I like a particular type of dog and he fits that "type" that I like.

P.S. the "type" I like has a lot to do with how athletic a dog looks

I cant offer a formal critique, but I love his masculine head. I think he has nice pigmentation and does look very athletic. Whoever told you he was ugly does not know what they are talking about.

thanks KristiM and Patchon, appreciatte it - your right he is a speedster, thats fact, he has outpaced many a running dog. acceleration and agility is comparable to a mal...well almost.

when landing on solid obstacles its always a light footed like glide, never thumps down on an abstacle with his feet. but hey he's my boy and i am biased. would like to hear the negatives - i won't cry.
