Rügen, 9.5 months old

This was my first attempt to stack Rügen. I read through the post on how to stack and realized I failed to get his front legs directly under him and my have over exaggerated his stance. Maybe next time I'll get it right So Fire away! How does my young man stack up?





different camera setting



He started to get it on his own

Mandalay looks at me like I am a crazy person when I try to get her to do this.

Re: Rügen, 9.5 months old

I think he is beautiful but I am no expert!

For the stack, the rear looks good but the front needs to be straight under him like you say. Also for a really good critique you might want him on cement so we can see his feet.

He's gorgeous, great color and a very masculine head. I love him, course you knew that.

Re: Rügen, 9.5 months old

Thanks for the comments! I will try again when he is a bit older on cement I have been handling and positioning him since he was young so he didn't think I was a total crazy person. Although, he was kinda annoyed with me, the urge to sit down after being exercised to get these stacked shots was pretty strong. Silly Highline. His colors are actually somewhere between these two camera settings. His red isn't as rich as the first shots. I haven't found a "happy" medium on the camera yet.

Here's his head shot! I can't believe I forgot it the first time.

Lovely head! Other than his front legs being a bit too far out, I like his topline the best in the first picture.

Rugen is one of my favorite GSDs. I love the first picture which really shows his red color. He looks a lot like my Juli. Good job on the stack even though he looks a little bewildered.

Thanks. He's watching traffic. I live on a fairly busy road and he's not use to being able to see the cars.

I like him for the most part. I personally think he is too short through the loin, and could be a bit longer. The GSD should be short coupled, but he's a bit too compact for my tastes. That accounts for why he roaches sometimes though I think.

Lovely color and head :-)

Thanks Jackie! Yeah Rugen's a compact powerful little guy, not unlike his father. I appreciate your critique. I love checking out this section and all the beautiful dogs you show.
