Question Thoughts on Midnite...

I was able to take some pictures today and I was wondering how you guys think he looks. Please excuse the leash in the pictures, I was by myself and he can't be without a leash.

He is beautiful! I love the dark colored dogs. Any idea how tall he is? He looks like he has bigger bones.

He is slightly over 25 inches and weighs about 76 pounds. He weighed 64 pounds when I got him. His paws are huge. He is definitely more on the stocky side.

He looks like he will be about Raina's size. How old is he? He is beautiful.

I got him at the shelter and they said 1, so I'm estimating his birthday to be April 15th. What is Raina's size?

Does he fit the standard for GSD? His head, muscle tone, etc. Anything I need to work on?

Raina is 5 years old now and 26" tall and 89 pounds. Her birthday is in March.

No one that knows this breed well can tell me if he lacks anywhere

He looks fine to me. I don't see anything really standing out as "lacking". If he were my dog, I might drop a few pounds on him, but it could be the pictures or his coat type. I can't exactly tell. He's handsome!

It's really hard to tell with just seeing three pictures. You have to judge temperment, action, reaction, etc to judge personality. Otherwise he looks pretty well built for a one year old. Can you put up a short video so we can see how he moves? I like the straight back and strong hip look.

This is Raina at slightly less than one year. Not a great shot but I had to send a picture with her German papers to register her with AKC.
