Can't critique, but she's beautiful! Is she ASL?
I'm not usually a fan, but she's stunning! And I like how her entire back right leg isn't on the ground.

Substantial female with high withers going into a good topline. Good placement of a croup that should be longer. Very good angulation in front, excellent behind. Weak pasterns, good feet, very feminine head though the latter almost doesn't fit her very thick body. She looks a bit heavy in the photos and I don't care for the very deep and prominent chest/breast area.

I find this interesting, since everybody else comments on how much they like it. Always interesting to hear other opinions.

I did fudge on her age a bit, she's 22 months today.

I promise that she's not fat (in fact, I've been trying to put weight on her, she's been underweight), but she does have a very broad ribcage , which can definitely make her look chunky.

Thanks for the critique ^_^

I do agree. She's got a weak underjaw. I wish her muzzle were stronger, as it would give a better impression with the rest of her body.

I like the last picture better-Its funny in reading this people always say my older dog is overweight and I think some of it is how she is built-she is short and stocky

Markings can also affect how a dog looks weight wise, holland Mirada's black markings are low and curved, which can make her belly look saggy and more pronounced, as opposed to dogs that are saddled higher, so their underline looks straighter, and they don't look paunchy.
