Question Anyone have photos of fit/muscular GSDs?

I am looking for photos of German Shepherds who are very fit/muscular. Does anyone have a photos of dogs that are in great shape or know where I can find some photos?
I am trying to show what it looks like when a GSD is in very good body condition (lean/muscular) versus "regular" or "average" (less muscular) shape. I am not sure how much of the muscle tone is usually visible in photos with a GSD type of coat?

Stark is only 1 year old so there isn't a whole lot of muscle, but I would consider him very fit for his age. No body fat that's foresure.

These few are a series and you can kinda "see" the muscle/toned areas as he goes for the ball..






These are just a few standing/stack photo's that I have caught him in from the past few weeks.








One of him working (tracking).


This is a stacked photo of Stark at 10ish months old, I think he looks pretty fit for a 10 month old.


Not sure of this is what you were looking for. I have more "athletic" photo's (jumping, running, etc..) if that's what you would like too.

Zenzy is heavy boned (look at her legs) and muscular as well as pretty darn powerfull and really really fast. There is almost no dog that I know off (not even Yukon) that is faster than her.






Yukon is 79lbs of muscles. He is very different from Zenzy, even though they have the same daddy, he is not as heavy boned as Zenzy is. Yet very fit and powerful too.






Both


The most powerful dog EVER (Yukon) Who said that working dogs can't be couch potatoes?

Freya has a very wide rib cage, and that makes her look "heavier" from a distance, but she has a nice tuck and is very lean.


Rayden is very plushy, but you can still see a nice tuck!


ETA: I re-read your post lol The pic of Freya by herself, you can see quite a bit of defined muscle in her shoulders and haunches. Rayden, you can see his body shape, but definitely no muscle definition visible under all that hair!
