Masculine male with high withers and a good topline, though something about his croup/rear area I don't like, but can't seem to put it into words. Maybe a lack of balance. His croup is steep. Good angulation front and rear. Good firm pasterns. Would like to see a bit tighter foot. His coloring is too faded for my tastes.

Thank you, Lisa :)

Too faded for mine too xD

though something about his croup/rear area I don't like
I can't put it into words for you, but I know that what I don't like about it is that he really doesn't have much turn of stifle. The rear is there, but there's no curvature, which I don't care for.

Really, overall I like to think he's not bad for a BYB dog xD!

I like him, he is not over exaggerated

Thank you. It feels like he's lost a little rear from age 5. I much preferred his turn of stifle then

Thanks! I'm really happy to say that people do NOT think he is his age! When we started flyball, one of the instructors asked how old he was. When I said six, they said "No way! I thought he was only three or four!"

Very very good looking dog. At first I thought the colors were too faded....but on the second picture you posted he looks just awesome....the colors are perfect on him (my thoughts!!!).

I love his red tones, but he needs a much darker saddle and mask. His pigment is poor (almost 7 and he still has pink in all his pads)
