14 week old puppy critique please.

I know NOTHING about showing, but want to learn (for personal knowledge nothing more, as I have no interest in showing or breeding, just working my dogs).

I thought it would be interesting and fun to see what others say about my puppy.

He is 14 weeks old (tomorrow) and I do not have a recent weight or height on him (will tomorrow).

Here are a few shots (the best I have) of him.











Thanks everyone!

He has VERY similar markings to my pup...so I think he's just gorgeous!

I love the bat ears in the last pic!

Re: 14 week old puppy critique please.

He looks just like our Conor probably did at that age (we got him at 6 months, but the coloring and ears are very similar!) He DID turn into a stunning adult (he is 2 now), weighs 90 lbs lean and is a head turner. Your little guy will be too, he is adorable.

Re: 14 week old puppy critique please.

Thanks everyone,

I too think he is a looker, but I am biased.. Haha..

I am not quite sure what his exact weight is at the moment, but I will find out tomorrow (scale broke during the move).

HAROLD A -

Thanks for the comment, his name is Stark. It means "strong" in German.

Re: 14 week old puppy critique please.

Very masculine head and excellent color. Very good bone. His gait looks balanced at this point. He is a growing puppy so I hate critiquing at this age. Flat withers, a bit roachy over the loin. Croup looks pretty good. Photos are pretty dark so it is hard to see his shoulder. Good angulation in rear. Take more photos at around 6 months.

Thanks so much... okay.. now I apologize.. but can you explain what a few things mean?

Such as gait looking balanced?

Roachy over the loin?

Croup?

Thanks so much, sorry being a pest and if there is a good website or thread already you can just point me there.. I love learning about this and find it very fasinating!
