Most people can tell she's a dachshund, but I do get the occasional idiot who can't tell what she is because she's at a correct weight.

She's longer legged and shorter in the body than most dachshunds. Her face is a bit snipey with a narrower head than most. Her chest is deep but not nearly as deep as most. Her eyes are larger and a little rounder than most. Her color is practically unheard of in smooths. She has a lean and well muscled frame without being bulky. She carries her tail high. No roman nose.

She has the ideal short, very tight and smooth coat. Perfectly sized feet. Correct scissor bite. Great pigmentation. Correct jut to the keel. Nearly ideal ear set for miniatures.

Hawkeye and Lark are both very typey, Kechara on the other hand looks like a Sheltie mix and is an awful example of an Aussie even if she is a pretty dog in general.

Yeah, I think so. Obviously she isn't well bred, but the majority of people can tell she's a Boxer. She's got decent angulation in the rear, though I think she's longer than she is tall and they are supposed to be more square. VERY narrow in the front.. she's got like no chest. Nice head with a moderate nose. I don't know how tall she is. I think she's above average weight for a female at around 60 pounds. Nice deep chest, nice tuck. She's got a good gait and correct markings and color. Her temperament is spot on for breed standard, though she could use more drive in real life.

Do I think she'd win anything if she were able to show? No. Do I think she's pretty and like a Boxer? Yes. She wiggles her butt and is full of energy with a great off switch, fabulous with kids and very correct with everything she does minus being a little reactive at times.

Definitely has muscle tone.

(ps, my dog is too pretty and I'm restraining from putting ALL TEH PHOTOS in)

AHA! Here's a somewhat decent stacked shot. She's definitely built more evenly than a lot of the conformation lines. Many of them are built very uphill for some reason.

There are so many comments I want to make, but I have time for one, and that is Harlow is one of the prettiest boxers I've seen. I like her moderation.

I think she's got a much more attractive head than most show bred boxers

I kind of want to get a stacked picture of Abrams so I can have someone look at him and tell me how he's put together. I have no idea what I'm looking at. However, a stacked photo of him is a two person job and there is only one me. Maybe I'll have a sibling help me if I take the dogs with me for lunch on Sunday. Or smear peanut butter on something. Hmmmmm.

There is a ton of variety in ESs. Quinn is within standard and recognizable as an ES, but I wouldn't call her the most typical ES, if that makes sense. There are certainly lots of other dogs that look like her, but in general she's a little different. She's about 42 pounds, which isn't terrible uncommon in bitches, but because she's pretty tall at a bit over 21", she's built quite lean without being light on bone. She also has less coat than many English Shepherds (I wouldn't mind a little more - she is in full coat in the picture). Personally, I quite like her type and will seek out another "smaller" dog next time. Everyone has different opinions, but personally a 65+ pound dog would not suit my needs as well as Quinn does.

People tend to often think she's a Border Collie (including sport and BC people) but people familiar with the breed have recognized her as an ES. I can understand BC guesses but I think she definitely looks like her breed.
