I see a short upper arm which limits his front reach. He is also roachy over the loin, which spoils the smoothness of his topline. Nice croup and tail set. Good under reach and follow-thru in the rear. His black saddle could be richer (more black). Nice young dog.
And no, I don't think you can do anything to change him. Just let him grow up.
Obviously he is still a puppy and has a lot of maturing ahead of him.
I like his head and expression. Evidence of some roach leads me to believe that he is probably German Bred. Preferring German Breds I don't find this to be offensive.
Nice tail set, croup, no over angulation. I appreciate that he stacks on his feet and not back on his hock.
I'd not turn him away if he walked up to my door. Would love to see him in about a year or so.
He turns 9months on the 9th of May, so yes still a pup
I will be showing him off for sure. I cant wait to see how he develops myself.
He is my first show dog and i am loving getting out there so far.
Have had a puppy in group and 3 reserve challenges so far so i am stoked.
Young male with excellent secondary sex characteristics. OK withers with a good overall topline though his croup is a bit flat. Very good rear angulation and good front though his upper arm should be longer. The short upper arm and slightly straight shoulder is limiting his front reach. Pasterns are a bit straight (common when the shoulder is too), but he has very nice feet. I would like to see more black, a larger saddle, but he has a dark face. I like the proportions of this dog. He has nice length overall and good length of leg. He should be athletic.
