Your opinion on puppy

How good is this 4 mhonths old puppy for shows ?
Does he have problem with ears because to me they look big and heavy,and they are not stand up ?
I could upload more pothos if you want :)

|Personally at 4 months I would not worry. BUT I would probably feed him some chicken necks raw or backs raw or possibly even chicken wings raw. |
Please note I said raw only. The extra bone and cartlidge would be really good for him, start him out slow and increase as his system gets used to the raw meat.
They look to me like they will stand on their own. Best of luck with him Nan

|How do you know the pup is not eating raw already?|

|I would worry about the ears, they look thick and big and the way they're hanging does give the impression it will be difficult for them to erect, but no one can know for sure. I would also worry about that rise in middle of the back, the back might straighten up and it might always be like that. I would also worry about the pasterns, they are steep, but usually they get stronger as they grow up.|
Body size and head size are very good, hocks look good too, nice thigh and pigment. Good luck

At 4 months old he is in the teething stage, ears are usually flopped at this age.
I'm not fond of his broken topline, I know it's partly due to his stack and hopefully with time and muscle build it will lessen.
My main question is, how is his bite? In this photo he looks like he has a rather long and snipey muzzle, which says possible overbite to me.
Otherwise he is a good looking pup. If his bite is good then he will probably due just fine in the German style show ring

|If he is eating raw already then I would add more of what I listed above, along with chicken feet, necks, backs, & wings cottage cheese and yogart. Pasterns look a little weak which makes me think he is not eating raw. Even if he is on kibble, add these things to his diet and should help with ears and pasterns. BOL Nan|

Too early to worry about all those things. He is a 1/2 brother to the up coming star Tyson Fixfrutta, that in itself is a plus. He is not stacked properly so it does not give a true impression of him. Good luck to him.

|Fine dog, but those ears has some questions to answer: seemed heavy n flabby to fully erect. Are u sure his pedigree is right? Because i'm lately seeing too many puppies of this age group with such ears. From ur last picture, i strongly believe this pup'll over-come all apperent short-comings, but i equally have strong reservations about the ears. Goodluck|

|TOP 30 ??? You can´t guarantee anything in a 3.5 months old puppy...If ANYBODY on earth would be able to know about the career of a puppy show life would be much easier... |
Besides that-good looking puppy right now...

|This second puppy has very loose pasterns for his age. Usually young dogs do not show such laxity of ligaments at the knee. The tendons tend to relax as the dog ages. |
Anyone who guarantees a show placing in a puppy is probably not quite honest........

|Are you interested in German Shepherds or are you interested in money?|
This seems to be the wrong board for you...
There are easier ways to make money or get some applause. Why German Shepherds?
by TheGodfather on 08 July 2012 - 11:42
|German Shepherd of course!|
But I want to buy best that I can,this is why i told story about siger?
I will not even take him to the shows :)
