Critique this puppy

Please critique this puppy. Sorry about the stacked pict, I may have stretched her too far so I encluded the one that's not stacked. Does she look amer bred?

Re: Critique this puppy

she is actually ger/amer cross. Looks more amer bred to me too. But she sure has that german attitude! I might show her in the all breed ring if she gets more shoulder. She'll be a great performance dog if I keep her.

What makes you think that she will get more shoulder?

Re: Critique this puppy

Well she doesn't look as flat (and the shoulder doesn't look as straight) in the third picture (sternum) as the first.

Think maybe I stretched her out too much when I was trying to keep her head still. She has nice front extention, so I'm guessing that should placement is not that bad if she can reach out that far. The shoulder looks straighter because of the lack of chest in the front.

I've also been told that crosses sometimes get a better depth of body and fill out in the front (sterum) as they age.

I think I'm explaining it better. I also don't know if I'm going to have her long enough to find out. Most of the crosses I've seen usually come out looking more german than amer, so I'd like to know what makes her look more amer. than ger.?

Re: Critique this puppy

Re: Critique this puppy

She's from a friends breeding.

She'll be 12 weeks this coming sunday.

She loves the temperment of the german lines and the look of the american. She wanted to improve on the american so that's her resoning. I couldn't resist her so I took her in for a while. I don't know if I can do anything with her.

I can only have a small number of show dogs, and there's a real push for me to get an amer bred female for show and breeding purposes. Who knows how a cross will turn out. If she's not good, then she's in the place of a show girl and will slow down my progress.

If she's ok, then she's a credit and will add great temperment, fearlessness and intelligence. I will have a dog I can actually show in performance sports.
