Ty, 10 months



Hi so Ty is growing up, and I'd like to hear the opinions of board members. I will share that lots of people feel he has too heavy a head and short muzzle which may not be seen here, I still think he is beautiful

Probably because they are used to the snippy "collie" heads on a fair amount to american lines.

I'm not a showline person, but I think he is beautiful! Especially his head, he LOOKS like a male which is how it should be! You shouldn't have to look at the "plumbing" to be able to tell the sex of the dog.

Re: Ty, 10 months

He is beautiful and correct for a male! His head is not heavy and muzzle looks good! He has the look of German rather than American lines!

Re: Ty, 10 months

Very nice young male that is slightly stretched at this age. Hard to see his withers in this photo, but he has a very good topline though his croup should be longer. Excellent angulation front and rear though his upper arm should be longer. He does appear to toe out slightly on his right front. Good feet. Pastern could be a bit firmer (nit picking). Right now I love his head. As he matures it may become a bit too blocky for my tastes, but a front view would show more.

Re: Ty, 10 months

Structure information F.C.I.-Standard

Head
The head is wedge-shaped and in harmony with the dog's size (length app. 40% of height at the withers) without being coarse or overly long. The head should appear dry, and moderately wide between the ears. Seen from the front and side, the forehead is only slightly domed, the center furrow is either absent or only slightly visible. The length ratio of skull to face is 50 : 50%. Skull width approximately equals skull length. Seen from above, the skull slopes into a wedge-shaped muzzle. The stop should not be pronounced. Upper and lower jaws are strong, the bridge of the nose should be straight, not a Roman nose or dish-faced nose. Lips are taut, well closed and of dark color.


The cranio-facial axes (cranial axis AB and facial axis CD) are parallel in the German Shepherd. Any deviation from the parallelism represents a defect of varying degree. The right cranio-facial ratio is 1:1

Re: Ty, 10 months

I bumped up the pics at 8 months because there is a front view of his head there. Thanks for the comments. I am soo trying to learn and there are so many opinions.
