|Hey guys, I know the photo is slightly angled and just barely fuzzy, but anyone care to take a shot? Oh, and the rear|
leg is pulled just slightly too far back, this I know :)

|What a gorgeous dog. Beautifully angulated, looks to have a nice croup, nice wither, upper arm could be a little more angulated, but hard to tell. Very nice pigment. I like him very much! Theresa|

A good size, medium strong, black & tan dog of good propotions,
He's got a lovely head and expression with very good planes of the skull and good length of neck.
High withers,firm back and a good topline.
Good front angulations,with a very good lay of shoulder blade,
but the upper arm is short and steep. He's got good hind angulations.
He's got good depth of chest,good forechest,with a very good underline.
And good tuck up.
He looks like a dog ,that will excite a few people.

|Thank you guys! I'm trying not to be biased, or kennel blind in evaluating what I have.|
I'll try to get a better, perpendicular picture today. The photographer is a 9 yr old :)

by melba on 20 June 2012 - 21:06

That bad, huh. LOL

|I can't really critique him but I think he's beautiful and love the coloring on his face, very unique looking. Hope he is a happy guy and not too naughty!|

|I will make a new critique, this new picture is much better, can I post his picture with some lines on it ?|
by melba on 20 June 2012 - 21:22
|Ibrahim, please do!!! You are so good at drawing out just where angles and lines meet, and I|
still have difficulty sometimes visualizing bones.
by Ibrahim on 20 June 2012 - 21:56
|As a matter of fact my previous critique is revised as below since this new picture is a much better one.|
Very good front upper arm
Shoulder blade forward placed (if you notice behind the withers there is a dip where the shoulder blade should be placed).
Very good fore chest development
Straight front and strong pasterns, maybe they need little more angle !
Very good hind angulations including the croup
Strong beautiful hocks, very good hind bones proportions.
Has a slight rise but the withers still being the highest point in the back.
Vey beautiful dog

|Thank you so much!! What software do ou have to be able to draw lines on the photos?|
by Ibrahim on 21 June 2012 - 13:48
|For drawing only lines you can use the Photoshop, but if you need to draw to scale, measurements plus angles you need the Autocad, it's an engineering drawing software used by draftmen to draw engineering drawings such as those for buildings, roads, bridges etc.|
