5 month old bitch

These are two different frees stack shots. She set herself up. I have not touched her.

she looks to have lovely bone, i am not a fan of her top line in the first picture it looks like she has a dip just before her croup starts.
Lovely prosternum

Good luck with her

Love your dog the best you can TODAY, because they could be gone tomorrow

Gorgeous. Nice that she did it herself. Is she going to be a coatie?

She is not a coat All of my dogs are trained to stack on their own.

I agree. She's a bit long, and I think she's a bit soft over the loin right now. We're starting to do core exercises to strengthen her center

Super long, yes. But at only 5 months, she has time to get some legs on her. but don't listen to me, I'm super inexperienced =]

Thank you for the kind comments thus far. I know she's not what most of you are used to looking at

Lots of things I love about this girl myself?

Pigment and color. Very strong and rich. Very happy with her type. Much stronger underjaw than what my Mogwai has, and skull shape is beautiful. I would like a slightly wider muzzle.

Very, VERY happy with her bone. Nice and substantial, not flimsy and wispy. A bitch should be feminine, but not fragile, and I feel she fits the bill in that regard.

I do love that nice high wither. Back is a little soft (as mentioned) at present. Core exercises should help that a bit.

She has BEAUTIFULLY tight feet! I am such a foot freak, and do not like splayed, flat feet. This little girl has very well arched toes, pads are firm and dark. Her pasterns are also excellent. She is not down on them, nor does she collapse on them. Her ligamentation is better than Mirada's.

Her rear is mellowing out, which pleases me, as I do find her to be a bit overdone. I don't think she could use more front, just a bit less rear. Upper arm could be longer, shoulder layback is nice.

I would like to see her neck set a bit more forward (her neck is a bit too upright). This is not uncommon in the lines.

Ears are up and strong. Her left ear still droops a little when she's tired, but it does not drop fully. She is just finishing teething (dentition looks to be full).

Here's a pic of her on pavement (this is a couple weeks old), so you can see her feet
