Use this thread to post a picture of YOUR dog and have it evaluated by some members of this group.

Keep in mind, that you will get an honest evaluation, listing good as well as bad points, so if you're sensitive be forewarned!

Okay, I'll start.  Here's a picture of Vegas at 11 months of age.  Opinions are appreciated.  Thank you!

Just my opinion...nicely bodied bitch for her age.  Looks more mature than 11months.  I don't like her shoulder set..they are a bit too far forward for me..not enough angle in the front.  Otherwise a very nice young girl.

Thanks Nicci, but I'll be the first to say that she could use more chest and better front angulation.  Ooopps!  Are we suppost to critique our own dog?

For newbies - when you all make comments on dogs, such as shoulders beging too far foward, angulation, etc., if anyone has the ability/capacity within their computer workings to do drawings on the dog their are critiquing (if applicable) it would be helpful for the learning eye.  

 

I think it was Teresa that said if you open the pic into "paint" under accessories that you can draw on it and then save it and repost it. 

 

Thanks.

Can't see the tail, she still has some growing to do and her eyes could be tighter.

 

Very nice in all other aspects!

 Jen, Vegas is very nice girl with a wonderful body, very nice rear angulation, nicely leveled top line for this stage of development, very pretty head and broad muzzle( love them broad). Shoulders set( as few people mentioned here) would be only thing I would want see different on her, they are little too forward which makes chest looks little pushed in. How she moves on her front?

Here's my boy , Eliot.

 

Feel free to critique him as well. Yes, he is a fluffy...so the critiques are really for my own purposes, just to better help me understand his faults.

 

He is not stacked well in any of these pics but these were some of the most recent ones I have.

Yes, you're right Steve - the eyes could be tighter (haw haw haw!!)  That's for you!  Olga, her front movement is pretty good - she has alot of reach for the shoulders she was given.  No straight up and down movement, luckily.

Olga,

Good feet nice look, would like her a bit longer and with more substance. A little straight in the rear.

 

She is young and time will tell.

 

Can't really tell, but I think she might be a bit undershot. You tell me!

 Yes Steve, she has undershot and agree, I would love to have little longer body on her. I dont worry about substance, her mother 248 at 4 years, tons of substance! Inna seems developing same way .

okay i am a little sinsitive but i can take it. here is my angel. i am actually bringing her to the fort worth show 23rd i think to have the group take a look at her. she is 9 months in this pic i believe. also what color do you call er? when i got her she was fawn no doubt and so i reg. her as such now she is a light apricot with fawn undertones kinda i guess is how you'd call her. you can't tell in pics though that she has apricot. she just keeps getting darker and darker! okay the pic with her standing is at 10 months and the pic with her facing you i took the other day she just turned 11 months.

 Hi Brandi, I like second picture of your girl, not much possible to say from the first one. To me she is well proporshioned, nice length of the body, pretty color, not shure if she is apricot or honey fawn. Nice top line on a young girl and looks like she has nice bones as well.

Yes, Eliot is a fluff. He has lost most of his fuzz but he is still a fluff.

I am still learning all of this too. I see alot of people very very proud of thier babies and that is so so awesome. I know my dogs faults and if I can get recent pics I will post so you all can see but I think its an awesome idea to have someone paint or draw the perfect mastiff and list the points as far as what your looking for when you mention angle in the front Thanks God bless Candi
