Opinions on my girl Elf... 20 months

Since it is the Christmas season, I thought maybe I could get some input on my Elf I had forgotten how hard it is to get good pictures by yourself, but you get the idea....






Thanks!

Thanks! I think she is great, but of course I am biased.
Any critique-y type comments?

Re: Opinions on my girl Elf... 20 months

i don't comment on to many of the gsd's here just because i really LOVE the darker pigments and don't see enough of them.

anyway, LOVE your girl, she's beautiful! pictures are kind of dark so can't really give a critique, but from what i see she looks very well proportioned.

Straight shoulder and pastern, feet could be tighter. Would like to see a bit more bone as she's a rather substantial bitch body wise. Long in the back.

Nice deep chest, good spring of rib, lovely tail set and length, slightly doggy, though when I look at her I still think "bitch". Color and pigment is fantastic, lovely ear set, nice head. Would actually like to see a little less angulation and leg in the rear, to better match her front and body proportions :-)

I bet she's a ton of fun!

Re: Opinions on my girl Elf... 20 months

Thanks again! I guess I still see her as a baby (she stayed 45 pounds until nearly 12 months) and think she is small. Stepping back and watching her in the yard, I see she has grown up a lot, and is actually looking a bit like her dad.
Jackie--do you think I can show her in AKC??!

Nay. She's pretty, but she wouldn't do anything. Not enough rear or shoulder on her, and her coat is much to dry (tight) for their liking. I think she's beautiful though, and would likely do very well for herself in UKC shows...or even better, agility

Re: Opinions on my girl Elf... 20 months

I took her 1/2 brother to some AKC stuff when he was little for the experiences..... we weren't exactly laughed out of the ring but let's just say Jimmy Moses was there and that sable female that won everything a few years ago
I had thought about doing IABCA but don't want to waste my money if the judges there are looking for the AKC type.

As to agility... guess what her Christmas present is!!
