thanks Jax i will do that next time it was a bloody struggle to get him like that..Totally digging the skull onesie!!
He's handsome. Try to get his front legs under him more. Pick up his legs right at the elbow. Take his skin at his neck, when you pick up the outer leg pull the skin towards you. When you set the leg, release the pressure. Then do the same with the other leg.
Thankyou!Very nicely colored bi-color male with flat withers, but otherwise a good topline. Good placement of a croup that could be longer. Good angulation in front (might look even better if his front legs were under him), sufficient angulation behind. He is standing east west in front in this stack (I realize it is a first attempt). He shows good secondary sex characteristics so he must be fairly close to maturity (I believe you said on FB that you don't know his age).
I've never attached an image so don't know if this can be opened but it's a comparison of the GSD breed standard at the end of the 19 century to the GSD breed standard of today.
The dog on the left looks more like your dog, which is not a bad thing...
