Default Marcus-opinions please

I chose this forum simply because we don't have a conformation forum. What I want is some solid advice, gloves off, nitty gritty. I am unfortunately not one who thinks my boy is perfect just cause he's mine.

Ok, on the plus side, he's got an apple dome skull, his bite is just slightly scissored, his top line is level, his legs are straight and not too long, his feet are good, his tail is a slight sickle shape, slightly rounded shoulders that slope nicely.

On the negative side, his coat is very thin, he does have a slight ruff on the neck but not much, his tail is not even close to furry and it's slightly crooked. He's a bit too long in my mind and the tummy tends to tuck up, his ears are large and his muzzle isn't delicate. It is proportioned correctly however.

Now please don't be nice cause he's my dog and we're always nice about other people's dogs. Just honest.
In my honest opinion I think I could with a lot of work put a championship on him but should I? Or would the best option be to neuter him and start looking again?

he is perfect but as yoppu say the thing that is off for me is his face his Muzzle does seem too thick, but he has a lovely stance and is a beautiful boy , I think you could champ him but it may be hard work and it all depends and the judges and what traits they prefer on the day- would you be handling him or someone else ?

Good luck whatever you decide and he is a cutie pie and he has lovely markings

Exactly, I agree that with a great deal of work it could be done but should it? There's the real rub. No it wouldn't be me in anything but a practice show, I totally believe in handlers.

Well from a experienced shower I think his head is perfect, nice straight legs but they are a little to long. Now I have never seen him in person and the pictures could be deceiving. I am only trying to tell you what I see in pictures. Could you possible take a full body profile shot?

I'll try again Lori, it's the one shot I can't seem to get.
