My guess is a WL? Certainly foreign, not US lines?

That's a showline, codmaster.

Nice rear proportions, but topline is incorrect. Wither appears flat to me, neck short. Lovely secondary sex characteristcs, good color, nice coat. Bone is excellent. The shoulder actually looks decent, upper arm should be longer. Front reach will be restricted by the placement/length of neck and formation of topline.

Croup is of moderate length, but quite steep. Good tailset. Lovely feet, excellent color

Thank you.
This was for a non member personal friend.
I didn't want to say who she was, I didn't want any biased opinions.

The pup actually made VP1 in Germany a couple days ago.

I didn't want to insult anyone's dog, but that is one of the worst roach backs I have ever seen...take that for what it is, I'm not a conformation expert. But what is it with the Germans' predilection for roach backs??

She is pretty other than that.

no end in sight for the roach back then. Can't see her wither or point of scapula , upper arm, humerous short , and this is what gives the reach.

pretty important points for moving. Dog will probably lift on front end . Back like that has no flex . Watch a dog that does a jump when they land , slow motion to frame by frame like the Muybridge photo studies . This back would not help absorb any impact , hard to stretch out to jump ditches . Range of motion pretty well limited to running around a ring. Not even good for uneven ground.

backs need to be returned to a normal state as per the standard.
