Nice flat back. Skinny legs (which actually doesn't bother me at all, but some like the big 'ol stumps you know). I like her rear angulation- I bet she looks beautiful in motion. She has strong pasterns, but stands east/west. I've heard people say "poor feet" before in critiques, and I assume this is in reference to the padding. In this case, it doesn't look like she has much padding- so I'll say poor feet. Not sure if I'm using that correctly or not though. She does look nice and lean with a good bottom line. Perhaps a small head, though I think this is very common in ASL dogs. Her head size doesn't really bother me. I think that there is a term to define the position of the base of the neck, where it meets the body. I have a feeling her neck position is a bit low, but I am not confident about that.

Actually- I am just guessing on all of this. That's my opinion on your dog which isn't based in a lot of education... She's very pretty! She has a beautiful "alertness" to her in that last photo.

yeah i really couldnt get her to "smile" at me. she would look else where and do it as you can see in her second picture. lol. she is a mix of cezch and WGSL. i want to say she's between 21-22 inches at the shoulder and around 63 lbs. but thank you :smile:. yeah her feet bother me, she can be very cow hocked in the back and her feet toe out in the front. she was goofy as a pup when it came to walking or running. reminded me of a baby foal trying to use its new legs. shes getting better and agility really helped her movement

This is why I should not hang out in this forum! LOL! Sorry for the ASL comment. I read "poor breeder" and saw you were in America and assumed ASL. I guess I don't really know how to tell a dog's lineage from photos yet. Like I said- it was all just a guess...

Very pretty, very feminine. Front sitting shot shows her head better. She is so slim and leggy I wonder if she is part greyhound or whippet, doesn't look pure. I am far from an expert, that is just what I see. I expect she is very fast. Also see the east-west.

Yeah she's fast. Especially in tight places she turns and burns scares me but she never wipes out. She is pure we did meet the parents and she is akc registered. Were not sure why she is so leggy. Some of her sublings are short and stubby and fat. I think it migrate be the way her photo is. She's pretty short in real life lol.

Very feminine female with a running structure (that someone has pointed out). Flat withers, OK topline though her croup is quite steep. Sufficient angulation in front, good in rear. She appears to toe out in front (in all three photos). Good ear set, dark eyes. Yes her feet could be tighter.

A picture would be the best way to show what I mean, but the toes should be tighter together and the dog should be more up on the toes. The toes shouldn't be long or spread like fingers. A very tight well knuckled foot can be seen on breeds like the Doberman. That is too extreme for a GSD, but gives you an idea of a tight foot.

One of these days I'll get a photo of Donovan's feet. He has nice tight feet which is very good since they have to carry around a big dog.
