Young male that is maturing nicely. Flat withers, OK topline, long loin going into a slightly sloping croup that should be longer. Very good angulation front and rear though, as in most dogs now, his upper arm should be longer. Very nice front feet. What is going on with the left rear? Looks like there is something extra in the photo on the pavement. He could be a bit more masculine, but black dogs almost need to be extra beefy to not appear feminine. He should start filling out now especially if he isn't neutered. Good eye color and a very nice ear set on a handsome head.
Ihczth....it’s his toe spread out on the left. Being a concrete the toe spread so it was stuck there. Thanks for your critique, Ozzy has a tight coat and very lean in a good way. Yes, being a black lean dog he looks less substantial. He is just now filling out.
Here is a pic at a year old. Helps when you have a photographer and I can be in front of him.
Jcrest...... Ozzy knows “stand” so being by myself it helps to take a pic but not as good when you have someone else taking the pic. Also I put his ball up on a grill in the park so he is focused and he doesn’t move. Wish I got his head up more though.
Rollo has a "stay still" command which is a lot like Ozzy's stand lol where Rollo is standing and basically freezes. We used it from the beginning when he was a pup for putting on collars, leashes, etc. It's a useful tool to have
Thank you comet. Yes, having someone who takes awesome photos with a great camera makes a big difference. Ozzy just turned a year in that pic and of course cold a snowy. I want to get some fall phots taken next month.

I think I know what her faults are, but I can tell that I gloss over them since I love her so much.
So I need other people to help keep me in check. I'm still trying to piece out if...
I adopted this girl from a local who couldn't keep her. The lady told me she was "purebred GSD from Czech working lines" but....I'm not sure I buy it.
People keep asking me if she's part akita. I feel like she might be a malinois. I dunno. You all have way more experience than me, so what do...
