Have At Her!

As the title says, feel free to say whatever comes to mind!

I am pretty happy with how she is maturing personally, and there are things I would change but I love getting second opinions because sometimes people notice things I've missed or simply have great info to offer!

14 month old female, my first dog bred by myself.

I don't usually start with a negative...... What first caught my eye is her top line and then how, right now, her rear looks like it belongs on another dog. She is a bit long through the loin and hasn't filled out yet so that is a lot of what I am seeing. Her withers is also flat. Being a black dog doesn't help. I have dealt with that before too. BUT she has a beautiful shoulder, very good angulation in the rear, would like to see a bit tighter foot, but her pasterns are very good. Excellent secondary characteristics and dark eyes.

Thank you!

I really appreciate the feedback! I definitely agree overall, although I would also prefer she had a bit longer upperarm, longer lower thigh(shorter hock too), and a bit more bone.

Her topline isn't exactly what I prefer, but I am happy with it because it's an improvement from her dad's and a step closer to what I'd like to see. I would also like stronger feet, they are a bit tighter than her mom's but she didn't get her dad's super nice feet. She got a straighter front assembly (referring to easty west front not as in angulation) than both her parents, so I lucked out there. Also, I'd prefer a straighter tail, you can't see it in these obviously but it's a tad flamboyant. ^_^"

I see "flat in the withers" often on this forum. Would you be able to provide an example of a dog who had really good withers as comparison? I'm always wondering what that would look like in a dog.

Other than that, I'm no conformation expert, so I'm just here to say your dog is beautiful.

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

Thank you!

And her dam has what I would consider high withers.

Okay, that helps explain it. Thanks!
