His stack seems a bit overdone, back legs are too exaggerated.

I'm not a show person, but his pasterns look bad. Very weak. Perhaps others will give a better crit.

The stack isn't overdone IMO, the dog just has a lot of rear. His pasterns do look soft.

I'd like to see his head more "up" than forward. It really flattens out his wither.

What are his lines?

I thought he looked familiar!! Fate son.

He takes after his dam more than he does his sire.

Could also use more pronounced stop. At this stage kind of a bitchy head, but will have to see when he's more mature. And the pasterns are weak, but that could also improve with some time. Hard to get a good view of the shoulder on a black dog.
What does it mean on the sire's listing, normal left elbow? Was the right elbow not normal?
