|Can you post a picture, front view of her head?|
Do you have more pictures of her in stack?

|Here are a couple of photos of her when younger. I haven't taken more recent photos of front, etc. Something I need to do. |

|Here are 2 photos of her stacked last summer and taken one month apart at 10 and 11 months of age. Amazing the changes in appearance positioning can give . |

|The additional pictures show nice face expression and very good earset.|
In the first picture you're catching her below the ears and pulling her up a bit, therefore her ears don't look her best, neck angle is distorted and her front upper arm angle doesn't look its best.
Nice looking young black and tan above medium sized GSD bitch of medium strength, good
proportions that might be very slightly stretched, nice fore angulations, good lay of shoulder, good length of front upper arm but slightly steep. Stands good in the front though the un-level ground causes her to stand a very slightly toes pointing out, nice tight feet and short toes. Beautiful high withers, beautiful topline, good lay of croup that is of good length, very nice tailset and straight tail, nice rear angulations, deep in the stifle, good bone proportions, good hock, a very nice girl, I see no faults.

Thank you. I have to measure her as I am not sure how tall she is. She does not seem overly large to me, but I see her every day. Here are a couple of photos of her litter sister. I kept 2 back from the litter as their mother is now retired.

|Second sister looks stronger in build with lighter black pigment but shorter croup, I think both are just lovely, are you in the States?|

|I'm in Saskatchewan, Canada.|
After a few years of dealing with a nasty divorce and some health issues, I am ready to start training and showing again. I just did enough breeding to keep what I wanted. I think I have some nice dogs to keep me busy for awhile. I have very nice consistency in my bitch puppies. The males are nice as well, but not as consistant in type.
Thanks for your critique. It helps to have a second set of eyes look at the dogs.
