Re: please critique,4.5 month old
That's a really nice puppy in a really awkward growth stage for critiquing ;-)
But he has beautiful proportions, and a nice topline, head and bone. At this age, his hocks will be long (the rest of him will grow into that), his pasterns somewhat soft and lengthly (they'll tighten up) and his long bones shorter than they will be once he's past this growth stage. Post a picture of this puppy when he's 7 or 8 months old, and I bet he's going to be a lovely dog when he's 3. Congrats!
