I think he is an overall nice dog. If you are going to use him for breeding here are some things IMHO that could use improvement.
He could use a little more reach on the front end which means he is a little short in the upper arm. He does have a bit of an arch in the topline. I wouldn't breed him to a short coupled bitch, he is ever so slightly short in the body.
Second movement picture much nicer than the first.
Just wondering if he is a patterned sable???? I see a lot of sable color. You can only tell when they are newborns, the vent area under the tail would be red.
Nice eye color, I like a darker mask, the muzzle is color is good, but there could be more black on the rest of the mask, decent stop, lips on the bottom could be a bit tighter, nice tight feet (love tight feet), good pasterns, nice drive on the rear.
Nice dog for Australia, I think we need to remember that their gene pool over there is even more limited than in the US.
Thankyou both so much!
What you have both said is what he gets commented on in his critiques, the loose bottom lips, and the darker black would be better
His pigment is not so crash hot - he gets snow nose
which i hate
I also love his feet - i am funny about feet, they have to be nice and tight - HATE with a passion yukky feet
A patterned sable is a sable that has the saddle pattern. Most sables have a lot of black all over but patterned sables don't. My Kenya is somewhat of a patterned sable, very light with a definite saddle but still a sable.
