Arrow Please Critique Rügen - 26 months old

Rügen is 26 months old, 25" tall and weighs in at 61.7 lbs. He is an intact West German Highline.

These photos were taken yesterday in the Utah high desert along a portion of the Pony Express Trail.



The wrong angle for many reasons, but a better photo of his withers since he wasn't looking forward in his stacked pic.

For Fun~

25" and only 61 pounds? Is that a typo? From the pics he looks more like a solid 80+ pounds at least?

Nothing to add in terms of a real critique other than rugen looks like everything i'd like to see in showline dog. Beautiful red/tan and black coat. Looks like he's in great shape. He looks like the prototypical west german showline... in other words, he's gorgeous.

Whats his personality like?

Thank you

His personality is wonderful. His temperament is bomb proof and his drives are strong. He is very mellow in crowds (loves the farmer's market) and plays well with my friends' dogs. He is not possessive or territorial, which I love and travels like a pro.

He's a small fry by comparison to most GSDs around at only 25" and 62 pounds, but he is near the top of the SV's male standard of height 60-65 cm (23.6 to 25.6 inches) and is just barely under the weight range of 30-40 kg (66-88 lbs.)
