Critique Wolfie

Is it possible to critique Wolfie from these pics? I am hopeless at getting him in a stack and then taking the shot. He usually moves a foot, his head, or turns to look at the camera. If possible any critique is welcome. Wolfie is 25 inches tall and 87 lbs.
Thank you. PS: I added the "sit pretty" shot at the end because I like it

I really like his head, it is quite masculine. Overall, very handsome. He seems very compact and short-legged, though... is that just from the angle of the pictures? How old is he?

Could be from the angle of the picture. He just turned 2 years old.

Yeah, legs are quite short. I forgot to mention I like his ear set and he has lovely coat and colour.

The angle of the photo does not help the leg length.

Very balanced young male with excellent secondary sex characteristics. Flat withers, very good topline, correct position of a croup that should be longer. Good angulation front and rear, VERY good feet, could use more length of leg. Excellent color and pigment.

Any suggestions on the correct angle of the photographer? I was standing over him. Should I get to the same level as he is to get a better shot?
