I'm very curious.

Not for breeding, just curious - my pet

Very nice stack! I'm not a pro for critiques at all. The only thing I could comment on would be the break in the topline behind the withers. I would prefer a bit of a more masculine head, but overall I think he is very handsome and I really like his structure and coloring.

I was thinking the head looked a tad feminine, "pretty" if you will, and not masculine, and he seems longer than he is tall, not sure if that's a fault, or anything? It seems where his rump should start to fall that his is extended. I mean...extra longer since I know GSDs are supposed to be longer than tall normally.
I can't wait for a few of the pros to chime in!

But he's very handsome either way

Thanks everyone so far.

GatorDog: Thanks, after reading your post I looked up "break in topline" and learned something new... and I also prefer a more masculine head

Thanks everyone else... No worries about giving criticism, we wont be hurt by it lol and honestly I want to know so I can learn more about structure and conformation

I'd also be interested to know how he would be classified as far as I don't know if I would say lines but maybe? Also the coat - I know he's sable but I don't know too much about things like saddle and mask, etc

Ok, sorry for the multiple posts...

My guy is a tan patterned sable (some say red sable, but I don't think he is red). I can't tell much about your guy's mask from that picture, but he seems to have a nice amount of black on his face. Mine has a little less which is undesirable to some.
