Xeph I've seen him in person many times. Not my style. He is more angulated than the pictures show. He's just being stacked close in the rear.

I don't show my dogs heavy...I've gotten compliments from the judges on the condition of my dogs.

dogfaeries I'm not wild about that photo. Here are some of him gaiting:

Andaka The AKC group ring likes then heavy. Not a trend that I'm happy with.

The dog appears to be a little long for me -- I prefer a shorter back as it aids in turning. The head does seem small for the body.

Liesje I don't like him. Not sure if it's fair to critique or not, but being a widely distributed publication and heavily campaigned dog...to me he looks heavy (or needs more muscle definition for that amount of mass), back looks weak, don't really care for the head or expression, looks like a big white patch on the chest and light colored feet, not my type/rear. I like the color of his eyes and black pigment though.

Personally, there's not a whole lot about him that I like. I do think the small insert at the top right looks a little better- where he's stretched and looking 5 pounds thinner. At least in that insert, his head doesn't appear quite so small compared to his body.

So, what do you all think about this dog?
I agree! Solo looks like an exceptional example of an Amer SL. Very nice lines and great coloring, IMO.
