Two half-sisters, same sire/different mothers - age five months

I would like to know what opinions are of these two half sisters. The first photo shows a five month old female whose mother is Czech-bred and whose sire is out of an ASL bitch bred to a male from West German show lines.

The second puppy is mine and is just one week older than the first. My puppy is out of an ASL female bred to the same sire as the first female posted.

I think you are just looking for compliments . Obviously your pup is better looking. Really, she is just gorgeous.

What strikes me as intersting is that the daughter from the Czech-bred mother has more angulation than my puppy whose mother is all American Show lines. The first puppy is not overweight at all, however, her body proportions are different. The first puppy is shorter on leg at this point and has not had the growth spurt that my puppy has.

Not all Czech dogs are working bred--could be Czech conformation breeding. Nice pigment on that girl.

The 2nd puppy is a nice package right now, showing very nice balance between front and rear angles and showing a nice topline.

I'd want to see the picture larger before doing any sort of real critique.

The first puppy's dam is a very dark black sable and has a plush coat that is quite thick. I was very shocked to see the angulation in the first puppy on Sunday when we took these photos because I specifically took the pick bitch from the ASL mother for me to show in conformation.

The sire of both girls is an offspring of a WGSL imported male bred to an ASL female. My puppy (the second) is 3/4 ASL and the first puppy posted is just 1/4. The angulation in the first puppy was not expected - very nice, but not expected.

Just because a dam is American, though, doesn't equate to having a lot of angles. What did she look like?

The WGSL carry a lot of angulation themselves, these days. Breed that to the right American bitch, and you get angles like the first puppy.
