How old is he? I think he's a handsome male but I don't do the show ring...

No critique, but I like him. Do you have a front head shot?
Is he yours?

I think he is a good looking dog too...but, I would like a more masculine head piece.
I really like strong, head pieces on male dogs.

See, I think he looks very much like a boy, lol. If his head were any heavier, I think it'd be too coarse. I'm not crazy about his lack of stop (should be more pronounced), but as a whole I'm happy with his head. Interested to see what it'll look like at maturity (3-4 years from now, lol). That said, I do always appreciate others thoughts, and am interested in seeing what they see (or I wouldn't have asked).

He's only 8 months old He's our new guy, since Mirada has not turned out.

No head shots yet. He's only been with us since late Wednesday night. Quite honestly, I'm amazed I get this stack (and he's posting a little x.x). I promised to get the breeder pics though, so I bathed him, and made sure I sent them right away

Young slightly stretched male with nice color. High withers and good topline though I would like to see a smoother transition between his withers and his back. Good placement of a slightly short croup. Good to very good angulation in front, very good/excellent in the rear in the rear. Very good underline. His pasterns could be firmer. Can't see his feet. He is masculine enough for his age and lines.

Because he's only 8 mos old....it's really not fair for me to comment on his look of masculinity. (I did not even consider the possibility of age.) I know what I prefer...but it's just my own preference.
Personally....I find the ages of 8/9 mos thru about 16mos..the worse possible age for a male.
Best of luck with him Jackie....I'm sure that you will do well with him.

That is a shame about Mirada. What happened?
I dont mind your new boy for an American show line but would like a more pronounced stop
Hope he works out for you

Love your dog the best you can TODAY, because they could be gone tomorrow

VERY much agreed!

Lisa, thank you for the critique! We've not found any place safe to put him on concrete to stack yet, but when we do, I'll be sure to get more pics (because I did want to show off his feet!).
