what do the experts think?

Not the best stack in the world, but what can you tell me? I know she's not an average looking Shepherd by any means. She's from german working lines. She's tall at nearly 26inches. Oh and she just turned 2yrs in November.

Re: what do the experts think?

She's beautiful. Her structure reminds me a lot of my mixed breed, actually. Strikingly similar. Especially in the body.

I'm no expert, but here goes. Very moderate female who's very square. Pasterns are a bit too straight and she has a steep upper arm. Hind angulation looks good but isn't extreme enough to win in the showring (AKC or FCI). Nice tight feet and short hocks. Very steep croup. I'd like to see a smoother topline and she has a break right behind her shoulders. Beautiful head with nice, short ears. Excellent pigment.

Re: what do the experts think?

Feminine, square and very dark female. High withers with dip behind withers, slightly roachy over the loin and a VERY steep croup. Good angulation in front and sufficient in rear. She looks very athletic though with the structure more of a runner than a trotter. Are you working her?

Re: what do the experts think?

Okay, well I updated the pic above with something of a wee bit better stack. Shows her length better I think, plus added a more detailed pic of her head. I personally see her as the most beautiful shepherd in the world, but of course I'm very biased.

She's very athletic, LOVES to run run run. She takes after a tennis ball like a bullet being shot from a gun. She's very fast when she wants to be. Sometimes I joke that she's got some greyhound hidden away inside her, (she is purebred).

As of right now I'm not working her in anything. And as far as schutzhund, I don't ever plan on it. However I would love to get her into agility or something like that, as soon as I can get rid of some of my debt. Maybe as soon as this summer (crossing my fingers).

And thank you for your opinions, It's nice to know what other people see.

Re: what do the experts think?

oh yeah, I almost forgot to note that in this picture it shows a steep rise in the loin, just past the rib cage. She's not anorexic, she had her belly shaved a few months back, and it still hasn't grown in completely. So thats just her fur. Vet says my baby is it great condition as far as weight goes.
