I like the second stack better, but you could pull his leg closest to the camera a little farther back like you did in the first photo. But overall the second stack is much better.
he has good rear angulation, topline is ok, flat withers with a dip behind his shoulders. Good underline. Good length to height ratio despite this age being a SUPER awkward age for L-H ratios. Good bone. The photo angles don't show it well so it could be the angle but I would like to see more forechest, but he is also still very young.
East west, Prefer a tigher earset but the photo isn't to his advantage. Has a short upper arm.
Wonderful temperament! <3
the leaning forward is a good thing! The top photo he is bridging. His front legs are out in front of him instead of under him like they should be in the second photo. Stand a little closer to the camera so his head has a better angle towards the camera. And for the camera man, tell them to level themselves with his body/chest area, less of an above view like these photos show.
otherwise great job! Balanced young male who looks very nice for this awkward age!
to be honest 8 months old is my least favorite age.
