Your thoughts on this girl

She is 6 months old in this picture....normally I would have stacked her a little bit more moderately, but I wont be able to head off to see her to say hello for a couple of weeks.



here is an expression shot (again, 6 months) :



What I can tell you is that she has a steady temperment, confident, and is not afraid of new situations. I dont know much about her drives yet...but she's got a good pedigree behind her...she's got some Klausner Platz and Arminius behind her....she was a solely kennel dog for a while, but it doesnt seemed to have affected her at all. I'll be able to get some better pictures and give you all a better idea of her sometime in the next couple of months. She's a co-ownership I am entering into with Leo's breeder...and I am excited about the prospect. His breeder is going to keep her and raise her and work her in tracking (maybe some SAR) and obedience and prey building, and I will take her when she is a little more mature and put her into training for prot. sport and herding and show her in conformation.

Thanks

Re: Your thoughts on this girl

I think her conformation is wonderful. In fact, I can't really find a fault. Maybe her upper arm could be longer and her stop could be more pronounced, but otherwise she looks well balanced and seems to have a very bright future. Congratulations.

Re: Your thoughts on this girl

Nice conformation especailly at that age.

Just a little note on your stack, you need to get her front legs under her a little more. It helps in seeing the shoulder angle correctly and will make her chest look nicer. It will also help get the correct angles on the pasterns.

Re: Your thoughts on this girl

lol - I know...that's not me, thats her breeder

I also tend to put the right rear further back in an older style stack.

I'll get some new pictures in a few weeks...I need to find a weekend when I am not doing the headless chicken thing with ROTC and the Guard.

Thanks everyone
