Critique Please

Abby is 2. Be brutally honest, not looking for compliments.

I'm sure you'll get lots of responses from folks on this board but the AKC also has a good learning video for critiquing the GSD conformation on their website...and for the 'Import' vs the 'ASL' controversy, the standards they recommend appear to be very suitable for either type.

She looks like she is good size and condition. I would like better color (not just red vs. tan, but the feet are too light for me).

She's an American showline, right?

The sunlight and camera flash make her look much lighter than she is, her tan is darker than it appears, but I hear ya. Thank you.

Thank you for the info but I am looking for critique from members. I find them honest and informative.

Her feet aren't as "tight" as I've seen on other dogs. That's about the best I can do.
She has a nice, straight back

I'm not a pro at the whole "critique" thing. I will say I love her head very feminine. I think Abby is fantastic!

Her withers look a little flat, she appears to be east/west. She needs more angulation overall but with her own angulations she is balanced for herself.
She has a somewhat wide earset I personally perfer closer. She has somewhat flat feet but not so much so.

She is at a good weight but I prefer a little more conditioning for a tighter tuck up and overall tighter look. She could use more pigment and darker colors. She has good pasterns. She could use a slightly larger head but thats just my preference.

Overall shes a cutie
