Red face Hunter vom Geistwasser - 6 months!

Hey guys,

I am trying to learn more about conformation, so I really don't know how to critique my own pup. I was hoping some experienced eyes could give me an idea of how he is developing. He's West German working lines, currently starting out in Schutzhund. I will put him through a breed survey one day, so I would like to start learning more about conformation while he's young.

Anyway, on to the pictures. Please let me know what you think! Please excuse the stacking... I was by myself, had to stack him and take the photo. I am definitely no expert! Front legs aren't aligned, back leg is too far forward, etc. Advice on that is appreciated, too!









Thank you everyone!

There's my Hunter boy!

It's hard to critique puppies... but I love this boy! Maybe because I am his Auntie... lol.. but he is handsome! That is my formal critique.

I am no expert but to me his structure looks compact and solid. How old is he in these pics?

He looks a little short in the body but pups tend to be leggy at 6 months. He will probably balance out. His right foot is pointing out, don't know if that is conformation or just a momentary thing. I am no expert (for sure) I just think he's over-all very nice looking.

I can't give any critique because I am not qualified but he looks very nice to me.

Thanks for your input, everyone! I greatly appreciate it! Yes, he is only 6 months old as of today.
