Harley:

I know I've posted before, but I never put Harley in a good stack. Hopefully this is better.
So what do you think of him? All honest opinions please.

He is 2 years old, neutered. (I know, he is very skinny and lanky. It's because he was neutered at 6 months old.)
He's from a back yard breeder so I don't know exactly what lines he's from, but I think he has some ASL in him.

I do not know anything about how to do a critique on your boy, but I do know that he is very handsome.

Handsome dog. Looks fairly typical of American "pet" breeding (which is not meant as an insult). I'm not an expert in conformation, but I prefer the moderate angulation to the extreme show-dog look. You've got him at a good weight and he looks healthy and well-groomed.

Thanks! I understand, that's just what he is. So does he have moderate angulation? Or was it the way I stacked him that gave him the show-dog look? And thanks again.

No, he doesn't have the "show-dog" look at all. He has moderate angulation.

Harley is very similar to my American pet line female. There's a ton of info in her critique thread. I think you can find some good stuff in there since Harley is very similar in conformation to my girl: https://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...ique-pimg.html

Flat withers, good topline, good placement of a croup that should be longer. Sufficient angluation in front. You have the front legs a bit forward of where they should be. Upper arm needs to be much longer. Good angulation in rear. Good length of leg. Pasterns are a bit straight. The ground makes the feet hard to judge. His being neutered at a young age has left him lacking in secondary sex characteristics. I would also like to see richer color.
