Critique my 6 month old pup please!

He's 6 months old in a weeks time, would love to hear your thoughts on my boy. I know he's stretching his head a bit far forward, I had someone to call him to get his attention and it worked a little too well



And here's a front on pic so you can see his head

Re: Critique my 6 month old pup please!

I have to say I love the dogs you have in Australia. Think he's stunning with some growing to do! Great color, not to extreme.

Be interesting to hear others who really know comment.

Re: Critique my 6 month old pup please!

Your pup is very nice-looking! I agree with MaggieRoseLee. It would be nice to read what the knowledgeable people here think. I expected more of a critique on my dog and no one wanted to say anything...

I hope that's not a bad sign...

Thanks FourIsCompany, I am looking forward to hearing the critiques myself, hopefully someone will have a moment to give a critique for him. I just looked at your boy and left a comment, he is lovely!

Thanks for the bump MaggieRoseLee

Re: Critique my 6 month old pup please!

Beautiful color and coat. Nice strong head and bone. Pastern maybe a little too upright (not enough give to it). Tight feet. Good shoulder, but the lower thigh bone should be the same length as the upper thigh bone, which it doesn't appear to be. Also a little roachy over the loin area.

Nice pup.

Re: Critique my 6 month old pup please!

In the sitting photo I really like his expression. He also has excellent color, dark eyes and very good bone.

His topline is hard to see against the black pants. Black pants are great for when you compete, but awful for photos. Right now he looks to be flat withered with a very steep croup. Very good front angulation. His pasterns are a bit upright, but he has excellent feet. His rear angulation is very good, but his hocks are a bit long and I have to wonder if he is a bit cowhocked. Good underline, very nice head.

Re: Critique my 6 month old pup please!

Thanks for the critiques!

Sorry about the photo, I keep meaning to wear my gray pants but I forget. I have lightened up the photo heaps, though it makes the color completely wrong, but it helps you to see his topline better.



He is definitely not cowhocked, I can say that with certainty. I think it is the way I stacked him, his back leg might not be completely straight on to the camera as carpet isn't the best as its slippery, but it was taken at night. I will definitely have to get another one outside on better ground I think.

Here's a photo of him in a casual stance, he's just stopped to watch one of my other dogs. He also steps straight from behind as well
