Ben vom Bauerhaus

Are these sufficient for a critique? If not, please let me know how I should alter his positioning

Any conformation notes, good or bad, would be appreciated!

P.S. He's 70 lbs. I forget what his height is, but I believe it's within standard.

He's east-west in the front facing pic.
Can you stand him on a solid surface like concrete?

I think he's super handsome. I'm not huge on critiquing, but for some reason I really like his withers. And I love his head.

Thank you!

I'll try to get some of him on concrete. The sun is already down here, so it will have to wait until tomorrow.

Just got home from work and only had a couple of minutes to get pictures before the sun disappeared. This is the best I could do and I had to use the flash on the stacked picture.

Nice photos!
All I can comment on are his front feet, they are still "east-west" which means they toe outwards, both of them, instead of straight ahead.
His feet are not "tight" and the toes seem to sort of splay outwards some. Not sure why that is.
His eyes have a nice expression
I'll leave the rest to the experts!

Thank you for commenting so quickly I know the pics aren't ideal.

I'd love for anyone else to comment (no offense msvette). I swear I won't take it personally! I'm good about being objective

His shoulder is a bit steep; he has a decent length of croup but his tail is set a little high. He has good rear angulation. His front looked very narrow in the front and east-west in the first pic but in the new one looks normal - there should just be a slight turning out of the front feet which he has. He has flat feet. I like his head but overall he could use more bone.

I hope that doesn't sound too negative - IMO he is a good looking dog.

It doesn't sound too negative. It's exactly what I was hoping to get, an honest critique! Thank you so much
