how's her conformation?




This is my 15 week old puppy, Lucy. What do you think of her?

Re: how's her conformation?

Very small photos, but I love her rear angulation, her shoulder, her bone, her head, her topline, she looks just wonderful. Proportions seem just right, angles just right, tail maybe could be longer but she is a beaut! You should be proud to own her! Is she a working prospect? Will you show her in the German shows to get rated? What are her lines?

Re: how's her conformation?

The best thing about her is her temperment. She's awesome- confident, tolerant and as easygoing as they come. Nothing rattles her.
I'm so ignorant I don't know how to answer the question about her lines, so I'll give you the info from her papers. Her dam is Contessa Vom Kraftwerk and her sire is Boris Van Kraftwerk. I met both these dogs and they are wonderful. Their parents are working Schutzund dogs. Does that help? I have a three generation pedigree if you need more names- again, sorry for my ignorance.
My plan for her is to take obedience as far as we can. I need to learn all about the German shows- I want to join a breed club but am just a little out in the middle of nowhere- I drive 90 minutes for puppy class once a week. But I do feel like she has potential, and I want to take it as far as we can.

Re: how's her conformation?

Huh, tried to look them up in the GSD pedigree database but can't find either the sire nor dam. But I guess this means she's a Kraftwerk dog! She looks like a beaut and I hope she is everything you want from a dog.

Re: how's her conformation?

My breeder got the pair directly from Kraftwerk.
I will look up the names further back and see what I can learn.

Re: how's her conformation?

Contessa's parents
Cruger the Boom Vom Kraftwerk
Maika Vom Thielenhof

Boris's parents

Rabauke Vom Braunschweiger Wappen
Hanni Vom Guzzi-Stall


Looks like everybody in the pedigree is titled. I really don't understand what it all means but it can't be a bad thing, right?

Unless you find your pup a full time job, it'll be a bad thing.... but in a very good way. You are going to have your hands FULL! She has great potential, that's for sure. Consider schutzhund, please?

Re: how's her conformation?

The above photos don't do squat for justice. I saw a larger version of the last posted photo, and my goodness- the bone and the paws are amazing. If her ability will be anything like her structure, she'll be a heck of a dog.

And yes, schutzhund. Please?
