Hi, I am new here and wanted to start off by posting a picture of my new pup. Let me know what you think.
Gorgeous, how old is he?
Thanks. Sam was 3 months in that picture He is now 4 1/2 months old. Once it stops raining here I'll get some UTD pictures.
Such a rough age for puppies.
He's very high in the rear right now and he is out of balance, a bit stuffy around the neck too. He has a sweet head and expression though I'd like to see a bit more stop, and also has what looks to be a decent coat. What did he look like at 7 weeks? What is his pedigree like?

Here another at that age
and here some at around 2 1/2 months. its the youngest I have of him standing
both sire and Dam are AKC, UKC and CAN CH. and also Master Hunters
Did you buy this boy as a show prospect?
I like him. He is a quality puppy with a well set front and good shoulders. I don't mind the neck and given his front, I'm sure he will be just fine. Nice ear set, good eye shape and expression, I would like a bit more depth of muzzle, good bone all the way down, very nice puppy jacket, nicely wrapped tail. OK depth of body, enough keel. He is just high in the rear and that is age appropriate. I would like to see more second thigh at this age but you might have to be patient and see whether that comes in or not. Good rear angulation though. He's a nice little package with a good front assembly; something that is hard to find these days
We don't care about titles: who are the sire and dam?
To err is human:To forgive, canine."
Sam is really cute
Are you asking as a pet or as a show dog? Because the answer will be different based on what the dog's purpose is.
