Hi! Please critique my rescued girl. I don't know how old is she, but when I got her(almost 6 months ago) she was smaller. She grew up since then.
I won't breed her, she doesn't have a pedigree and she has problem with her back legs. I just want some proffessional critique for fun. A lot of people like how she looks and tell me she's the most beautifull GSD in our town. She won a dog show for non-pedigree GSD.
You can see photos of her when you click the links below. They aren't from the best angle, but it's really a challange to make her stand still.

I'll try to make some more pics from the right angle, but I don't know when I will succseed, because she can't stand still for more than a few seconds :D

Beautiful, looks purebred GSD to me. I like her more masculine head and her thick coat. She looks a bit heavy too me, I would take a bit of weight off. Very nice find in a rescue dog!

I like her top line. She looks all GSD, and very nice.

Thank you all! When I got her, her pasterns were weaker and her paws looked worse due to lack of exercises(chained in her owner's backyard) and starvation. She continues to improve slowly but I don't think she would ever look as a dog who has recieved good care by it's owners as a puppy(her paws,pasterns and muscles could have been better if she was my dog during puppuhood).

Pretty girl! You are both lucky to have connected!

There are many "showline" type dogs with tan rather than red color.....they are all (in Germany) registered as "black and brown"....the depth of the color is a separate gene and can run from such a light tan or "silver" to very deep red....the FASHION is for as red as possible....the standard calls for "rich" pigment....

but frankly, there are probably more tan than red dogs out there

All other things being equal, the dog with the richer pigment will take the ribbon. The thing is, it is hard to find all other things being equal. Your dog might have a better top line than the redder dog, and that should put your dog ahead of the other dogs. But a lot of it is personal likes, dislikes, and general impression. The redder dog might catch the judges eye, because of the color, and it may be harder for some judges to place a lighter dog ahead if they are both close in conformation and temperament. Color does not effect the functionality of the dog, so it should be one of the last things to consider, but it is the first thing you actually see.
