Show

remember that having working titles doesn't make a dog working lines

Show, but if he checks out physically, nothing to stop you from working him if you want to... Can you get a picture of him standing, as close to a stack as you can get, on flat ground? Like road/carpet/tile, his pasterns look a little funny, but I can't tell because of the grass.. By the way, he is in great condition...

I'll try tonight!

How could you see the difference between show/working dogs only looking at them? I've always thought show dogs were the one with the ass so close to the ground that you couldn't put an hand between each!!!

The type of show line you're referring to is the american show lines with the angulation in the rear. There is also the german show lines; with the problem of tendency for roach backs.

Remember you have German Showlines as well as North American showlines. The more extreme North American Showlines are the ones that are often criticized as "hock-walkers" with the very low back end. Extreme German Showlines are more often termed "banana backed".

Your dog is from German Showlines. The VA before the dog's name is a high German conformation title which is an indicator. Also typical is black and red saddle coloration.

I don't know why all Am show lines are thought of as being very sloped back, hock walkers. Only the extremes are like that, and a lot of people who love their dogs don't like it.My guy is Am/Can show lines and if you take a look in the critique section I just posted 2 pics of him at 23months. I am a crappy photographer and stacker but he is very nice and most people think he is pretty good. also he does herd, track and do agility, of course all are in beginner stages of varying degrees but he can work. Obedience will also be titled in and then he will also be shown in conformation. Truly a dog who can do it all, if I can keep up
