Critique our rescue

This is for fun, but I'm curious to what the experts might see in this girl. This is a totally natural stack... I think. Meaning I did nothing for it. She is my husband's dog and he is working with a very good trainer who sees working line characteristics. She is big boned. Strong as a linebacker and very fast and powerful. We rescued her and it was reported that she is around 2-3 years old, had recently had pups, though none were found with her and she was picked up as a stray in a rural area. She is about 70 lbs and it is tough to put weight on her. I think she could use 3-5 lbs very very thin although you can see that in the pics. Just curious.

She's a nice looking dog. I don't think I'd "try" to put any weight on her though Karin. A good diet and some more time, I'd just let it happen. I tried "putting" weight on one dog, once. All he did was poop more and when his body was ready, it filled out.

Point well taken Steve. She does poop a lot!

I don't know enough to critique your rescue, but gee wiz she sure is a handsome animal

When the stars threw down their spears,
And watered heaven with their tears:
Did he smile his work to see?

Did he who made the Lamb, make thee?

We got her from High Sierra Rescue in Portola CA, but she was picked up as a stray in Quincy CA. ;-) I can really recommend High Sierra. A very nice facility in a very small rural town.

I couldn't critique either, don't really know the difference between her or a show dog but I think she looks great. She also doesn't look super underweight. You got lucky with a beautiful girl, and thanks for rescuing! Congrats!
