Good drive off the rear, but I'd like to see a better shoulder and topline. Nice angulation in the rear, straight in front.

Color could be better, nice head, clearly an immature male, but should be stunning when he grows into himself. I'd like to see more bone.

Re: Please critique my boy

Thanks Xeph.
Daire is just under 9months old.
In your ccritique is there anything that i can do to improve him?
Or is it dependant on how he grows up?

Re: Please critique my boy

I see a short upper arm which limits his front reach. He is also roachy over the loin, which spoils the smoothness of his topline. Nice croup and tail set. Good under reach and follow-thru in the rear. His black saddle could be richer (more black). Nice young dog.

And no, I don't think you can do anything to change him. Just let him grow up.

I like the head shot but like more black on the body.

Re: Please critique my boy

Well, I like him.
Obviously he is still a puppy and has a lot of maturing ahead of him.
I like his head and expression. Evidence of some roach leads me to believe that he is probably German Bred. Preferring German Breds I don't find this to be offensive.
Nice tail set, croup, no over angulation. I appreciate that he stacks on his feet and not back on his hock.
I'd not turn him away if he walked up to my door. Would love to see him in about a year or so.

Re: Please critique my boy

Thanks heaps!!
He turns 9months on the 9th of May, so yes still a pup
I will be showing him off for sure. I cant wait to see how he develops myself.
He is my first show dog and i am loving getting out there so far.
Have had a puppy in group and 3 reserve challenges so far so i am stoked.
