I actually like the look of this dog. Sorry don't know about croup angle etc, etc.

Nice type, interesting nose band colouration.

He is a nice young male. He has a good head and expression. He has a correct backline leading to the croup which has a good length and lay. He has good front and chest proportions at this time and I hope that he does not become too deep as he grows on. His front angulation is good at this time but his rear angulation is too deep but this is a common fault in today‘s dogs. I think that he is oversized when seen against his handler. To show him I would use a tall handler.

As I do not know the dog my opinion could change at a later date when he has grown on. Also, it is better to see the dog in the flesh to get a better assessment.

Can you tell us his age and breeding please?

NICE looking showline male. Change his colors and he'd pass for a correctly-structured working line ;) LOL

Looks like he may be a *tad* East/West but he also looks young, and that can change when the chest develops more. I like his shoulder and his front very much- far more correct than most.

The band on his nose would likely go away with digestive enzymes.

He is one. And I apologize I was in the pic but we havent been able to get anything else before he moves. He is a Schumann son and Grandson from Etoo on mothers side.

My dogs did tend to have those "nose bands" whenever they tried to digg out mice...
