Anton at almost four

I have attempted a stack today. I think the position doesn't do Anton justice, but I thought maybe it would help to learn more about his structure from our experienced forum members. Your input is always very much appreciated!

His front paws are normally parallel, he just didn't want to stay still. Thank you!

Nice stack. Great front. Great head, although his forehead and nose are not parallel. Front is so strong it makes his rear look like it belongs to a different dog, not in balance. Length to height ratio looks too square. East-west in front. Collar hides his withers. Steep slope to rear, while popular, not to my liking. Very masculine.

Um YES PLEASE!! Out of curiosity, how big is he? B/c to me he looks reeeeally nice sized how I like, not too big or too long in the body but NOT lacking in masculinity.

Thank you, guys! I can look at him all day But I do appreciate the honest critique.

Pat, thank you for your input. I didn't even realize that a forehead and muzzle has to be parallel, learnt something here! He is a square boy, I always joke that he has the build and the movement of a cat, not a dog

Lies, he's no more than 25.5'' and 77lb. Absolutely everyone comments how big he is when he really isn't but he does have the presence He has a very dense and longish coat with incredible amount of undercoat that is pretty rare with solid blacks.

Kaity, good eye!

Wowza! Presence and masculinity indeed, I had no idea he was 25.5" and 77 lbs!! What a HUNK

Gorgeous masculine head, fantastic feet, nice and tight, excellent secondary sex characteristics of course, impressive bone, love his depth of chest and his overall front... just a balanced, handsome, impressive dog.

I need more Anton pictures!
