Critique Trent - 2 1/2 Yr Old Male (Working Lines)

2 1/2 years old this August 20th, primarily West German working lines.

From a month or two ago:





Recent:



He has better reach when he is really trying (this is his easy, hot and tired and trying to get to the shade gait)... but even that probably couldn't be considered "good" movement, so please just call it as you see it


Thanks in advance.

I think he is very nice, nothing over done and very pleasing to the eye.

He is a very handsome guy. I agree, his stacks don't look over-done and he is definitely very nice to look at. Stunning how gorgeous that dark face is!

Going totally off memory, but it looks like he's filled out a bit over the last 6 mo or so??

Nope, I STILL love Trent. Send him here, it's about time for another GSD. I did have a dream last night that I bought one...

I think so! He's thinned out a bit and put on a tad more muscle, and overall I think he's gained more substance. Not complaining here

I would love to see you with a GSD again (just probably not mine )!! Trent would have a field day with Mals. Finally a breed that surpasses him in energy... none of the other dogs in the neighborhood can really keep up with him.

I'm not qualified to critique. All I can say is that he's a darn nice
looking dog. As stated above, nothing overdone, just overall
what I would want a shepherd to look like. I really
don't like the ones with the steep slope and weak looking rear-end.
Yours looks balanced. Nice head. IMHO
