Critique, Please?

Hi. I'm just curious to know what you conformation gurus may think about my girl, Sheba. I really want her conformation picked apart. Faults, strengths, things that maybe could be improved upon by better fitness, etc. Thanks.

Very pretty female, but I love Bi's. Good withers and topline. Good length of croup that is a bit steep. Good angulation in front with a nice length of upper arm. Very good angulation in the rear. Her front pasterns are a bit steep, but her feet look good. Very rich color and nice profile.

Thanks, guys. So overall her conformation is good? I'm pretty bad at the whole angulations and such.

She's gorgeous! Reminds me of Onyx! Do you have any pedigree info on her?

All I know is that when I bought her she was able to be AKC registered and she came with an application, but I didn't care about her papers because she was getting fixed and I had no intentions of showing. She does have the rear dewclaws, though. I don't know if that's characteristic of any certain bloodline or not, but she has them. She's very athletic and always on the go even at 4 years old.

You can still compete in performance events like agility and obedience with her. You aren't interested in doing anything like that with her?

The thing is, there are very little dog shows and competitions in KY and I also don't have the time to do anything like that with working and attempting to finish my business degree. Believe me. If I had time I would be showing her in something to put her skills to the test. But, she's also perfectly happy just being a pet and I'm happy with her being a pet, too.
