Re: Critique Please...

She seems to have good length of upper arm, but the angle of the upper arm to the shoulder blade is too open. Nice length of neck. Tight feet and strong pasterns. The croup seems to be a little steep in placement and short in length. The stifle could be longer. She is pretty and balanced.

Thanks so much Daphne, if you wouldnt mind can you tell me what that means when you say the angle of the upper arm to the shoulder blade is too open?

Re: Critique Please...

No problem. Basically when you look at the dog you draw an angle using the wither and the elbow. It should be about 90 degrees but lots of GSDs in all lines are too "open" meaning the angle is too big. Both my GSDs' shoulder angulation could be improved on.
