Critique: Kaiser

I posted 5 weeks ago but never got any responses. I'm trying to learn and would really appreciate a critical look at Kaiser I know his light/white points are not ideal, but thats about as far as I can get since I'm such a noob

Here is a free stack from today, at 25 weeks:


self stack by jsnail17, on Flickr

Here is where I tried to stack him, move away, AND take a picture. He moved his front leg (ugh!), and his back leg up a bit so unfortunately its not 90degrees to the ground, 25 weeks


semi stack on concrete by jsnail17, on Flickr

Here is a head shot (that tongue!), 25 weeks


happy boy by jsnail17, on Flickr

Movement from the front 3/4 angle, 25 weeks


getting better at fetch by jsnail17, on Flickr

Please excuse the potbelly from just having eaten, at 22 weeks:

Movement from the side, at a slight downward slope (and he was stalking) at 21 weeks:

18 weeks--with better aligned front legs but the inside rear leg too far forward (do'h!)

A little slimy, but a 3/4 head shot

Will leave an actual critique to people who know what they're talking about. Just wanted to say I think for a young dog he looks great. Not gangly at all, love his legs. Nice looking dog!

I'm not sure he'll end up being a long coat...my guess is a mid-length stock. I've always had a thing for the mid-longer coats though, AND sables. So I'm definitely a bit partial too Thanks for the compliment!!!

I am not a judge, I've only been showing GSDs for 2 years so this is in NO way an *actual* critique, lol. His body is a tad short and his rear looks to be carried higher than his front. His movement pictures aren't really of much use since he's stalking, which makes his high-rear look EXTRA high! :P
Over-all he looks to me to be front-heavy.

But, more importantly, he's adorkable! Love it!

So, you mean short lengthwise? or height? And which picture(s) suggest the higher rear? I thought he had a fairly straight back (when not taking into account the "jerry curls" lol) and a minimal downward slope at the hips. I may be looking at the wrong thing though, since I'm not sure what "carried higher" means, haha. I understand what you mean about the movement picture though. I wasn't sure if it'd work, but it was the only one I had that showed a full stride so I figured I'd throw it in there. Still learning here And I love the word "adorkable"!
