Ezio zu Treuen Händen

Finally got someone to help me get a decent stack of Sundance. (Thank you Stefan.) I'd love to hear everyone/anyone's critique. This was taken this past Sunday (10/21). He's just shy of 17 months.

I need to get a new headshot as the last one I have is from May just before he turned 1 year old. He looks like such a baby face in this picture IMO;

And here's an all wet one from September at 15 months;

Just saw this on FB - he is turning out to be a gorgeous guy!

Can't help with the critique, but I can say that I like him!

Can you link his pedigree here please!

Thanks!

So, not to derail this thread but what are your future plans with him? Are you going to continue training in scent work?

Beautiful! Love his front and rear. I think he could use a slighty longer upper arm. I'd like to see that rear foot extended just *slightly* more, because he DOES have rear angles, and the way he is stacked makes him look a bit crumpled up.

Nice long croup, though a bit steep. However, he has a really nice tail set that is often lacking in such croups, and thus it does not ruin the flow of the topline.

I like his bone. I found myself wanting "more" for a brief moment, but he is only 17 months, and has maturing to do. Beautiful forechest, topline (including a nice high wither) decent underline, wonderful pasterns, nice feet it looks like.

Love his head. I see too many heads that are overdone or refined.

The only thing I could really find to pick at was his croup, and perhaps his underline (tuck up is a bit sudden). NICE dog!

LOL - that's ok, I love talking about him.

He is certified for working now but his scent work training will be ongoing throughout his lifetime. He is also training in IPO and will be earning some titles in 2013 (if things go as planned). Beyond that he will always be our companion and house dog. He is upstairs sleeping on the bed with DH right now.
