Critiques on this bitch?
by Ramage on 13 May 2012 - 21:41
|This is my 19 month old girl. She's a bit on the petite side. I'd also appreciate honest critiques on her. We plan to get her to an SV show at some point, but I am not sure how well she will do considering her size. She is not undersized, but is on the smallest end. |
This one was taken within the past few days. She is 19 months.
Here she was only 11 months:
She is not east/west anymore. She is nice and straight now that her chest has filled in some.

|I'm not a shepherd person but i like her.|
Nice level top line
Nice bone for a bitch, not too heavy or light.
I really like her color, i think some of the bi-blacks are truely striking.
Her neck looks a little long, but she is young and that still has time to fill out.
As does her chest which still has room to grow.
Nice feminie head
Pretty girl over all.
Best of luck with her.

|I absolutely love the coloring in the back legs. She's got nice structure, nice head. Still looks like she'll fill out a bit, but she's beautiful.|

|Between 11 & 19 months tremendous change has taken place, her front chest development is much better, her chest is deeper too, Plus her withers has become pronounced, I only wish she gained an inch to withers height it would have bettered her total balance, she still looks closer to medium size but you know her better.|
A nice looking dry bi-color bitch, extra rich pigment, medium size and medium strong, stretched, too long a neck that affects her total balance image, slightly narrow head, good ear carriage, very good long withers, nice level topline, long back but not weak, nice lay of croup but short, good tailset and tail. Good hind angulations but could use deeper angles. Strong hocks that could be a bit shorter, good underline. Good chest depth but shouldn't get deeper, nice chest fore development, good fore angulations, good shoulder lay, front upper arm slightly short and slightly steep. strong pasterns of good angle, stands slightly toes pointing to the out (2nd pic). Good feet and toes.
I hope that helps

|Thank you all again :-)|
Yes, I wish she had grown another inch taller. I kept hoping and hoping ... but now I think she is done and this is what she is. Hopefully, she will fill out a tad more between now and 3 years. It will be interesting to compare her 36 month stack to these two!

|Her size should be in her favor, a lot of SV judges will place bigger dogs back from similarly structured ones. It is hard to choose from the pictures, but I may disagree with Ibrahim and pick the female as my favorite.|
