I'm not Jackie, and I don't have a lot of time right now to do a lot of digging on the internet, but here are a couple of heads that I am partial to.

gorgeous boy


Nice female


Extremely doggy bitch...If she were a male, I'd be in love.


Too big and coarse

By the way, I've shown what I feel are strong, coarse, and weak, not how the Amliner's generally feel. Most would think the first dog was far too coarse, and the doggy bitch would be vilified!


General weak head

*dreamy sigggghhhh...* I just LOVE too big and coarse! Jackie, I hope you can say that about Grimm's head one day. He has another year and a half to fill out though.

Jackie, is the first pic Rieko?

The female you posted Jackie, has almost an elfin look to her.. neat ears, cute face.

Daphne, that's a beautiful female! She may not have the classic look some might like for a bitch. But I like her! What a nice expression she has!

Yes that is a beautiful girl!

Diana, yes that's Morgan, one of my favorite head shots of her. Yeah, Rex had a too much lip that's why I had them tucked. Then they grew back!

Grimmi here.. whaddayas all think, I on my way to havin' a coarse head when I fill out next year? Not that my head isn't fat 'nuff already.. (wink, wink..)



Seriously, my fave GSD head is Congo Vikar, Grimm's Dad. Too coarse for many, but ideal to me (scroll to see all the pics):

Patti, Grimmi has a GREAT head. He's a boy - he's supposed to have a big strong coarse head. LOL, since when should a boy have a long skinny head?

I keep coming back to this thread to look at this perfect girl

Thanks, Jenn. Hims gots big fatty block-head.

That female looks so perky, so cute, neat, tidy... truly an elf in a dogsuit! Her ears, her face are almost.. Katie Couric-ish. Hard to explain.

But I think Morgan is a better looking female. Her substance, pigment, and expression. You can see that she means business, has intelligence, and knows how to use it. Plus, I like a female who looks strong and capable. GO, Moon!! Does she come from Sieger lines? (highlines)

Me's like a big fat block head. No deflated football heads around here, never have never will!

I love that little elf girl - something just adorable about her closing her eyes for the snowflakes. She looks like she's sitting on a cloud in heaven. Beautiful picture.

Thank you for you compliments about Moon. She is all that, and she knows it. She does come from somewhere and I've always suspected she was not a cheap puppy even though I paid $5 for her. I got her at 6 months old from

The only shelter I know out in RI is Potter's.. have been there a few times with a pal.

Moon, like Historian's Abby, looks like the best W. German showlines. Morgan just has so much substance and strength to her look. Nothing excessive, she's got a balanced look to her, to me.. but I'm no expert. Those are my fave lines, by the way. So, I'm biased! The dogs from W. Ger. highlines that I see HERE can be biddable (Kirschental), or really drivey, hard, strong-minded dogs.. like your You-Know-Who.

I wish I'd seen Westminster.. I love seeing what the GSD looks like each year, even though AmLines aren't something I am too familiar with.
