His pasterns and hocks look a bit low.
I really like his head, very masculine already.

I agree his pasterns could be better, but he's a youngster. Hope they go up, rather than down. His hocks aren't "low" so much. He's got a lot of rear. It'll be interesting to see if he turns out more moderate or ends up on the extreme side.

Beautiful bone, nice head. Would like to see tighter feet, even at this age. He has beautiful reach in the movement photo, but I will admit that it is probably (*in part*) due to some looseness in ligamentation (normal at this age).

Would like to see if that reach holds up as he grows.

Beautiful forechest and underline. Nice coupling. Nice high wither. Croup is of good length, but I find it to be a bit steep. His length of body is nice, though he's probably just slightly square right now. Right on the border of taller than long instead of longer than tall.

I would like to see his lay on of his shoulder to be set farther back. I feel like his front is tied into his neck (hence his very upright neck). That could also account for part of his stellar reach (though he is opening at the shoulder currently). He's a nice looking puppy, but I'm going to be interested to see how he turns out
