Health: 

Meriwether has not had any tremors, seizures, weakness in the legs or feet, issues with her eyes or ears, excessive scratching or other allergy symptoms, soft stools, etc. She runs, jumps, lopes, lies down, etc without any difficulty. She had mild panosteitis symptoms (growing pains) for one month when she was nine months old. During this month, she limped on her left front leg. She has not had any other illnesses and is extremely healthy and vibrant. 

 

Temperament:

Meriwether is an extremely smart dog with a calm, devoted sweetness. She has an excellent memory and does not forget what she is taught. She is on the submissive side of the spectrum and she easily submits to another's will. She is a follower, not a leader. She is not bold and lacks some confidence, however, she enjoys affection from others and is not shy around people she doesn't know. She prefers intimate one-on-one relationships, rather than superficial, lively gatherings. She is not quite confident in herself and is initially nervous about different places, people, or other dogs. Meriwether is bonded to her owners. She is fairly calm and has a lot of patience to handle when she needs to wait. She is not energetic. Meriwether is highly alert to her surroundings and takes in many things all at once. She notices a great deal happening at a good distance and uses clear discerning skills to make decisions simply by watching how others interact. She is not much interested in playing and is more on the serious side of life, although she loves to go for walks and run down the trail. Meriwether is not sound sensitive and does not instinctively fear thunder or gun shots. She has a high pain threshold and she can take a lot of pressure before she communicates. 

 

Conformation:

Meriwether is a large black/tan colored dog with a back mask and brown eyes. She is on the thick side of the body type spectrum and shows heavy muscling. She weighs around 100 lbs. Meriwether has a rounded rump with a slight sway back when relaxed. Her legs are slightly pigeon-toed and there is some cow-hock when standing. She does not have a tendency to trip over obstacles, but her gait is slightly stilted. Meriwether's tail is long in length without a tendency to curl over her back. She has a large head with a broad muzzle. Her ears had some rise as a young pup, but they both dropped after her adult teeth came in. She shows significant white spotting that is spotted due to the roan gene. Meriwether has proper teeth alignment and her muzzle is not too long nor too short. 

 

Faults: 

Meriwether had panisteitis at nine months old for one month showing limping behavior in her front left leg. Her temperament is too nervous, lacking in overall confidence. Meriwether's back is not as solid as it could be. She shows too much white spotting, is shorter than desired, is a black/tan color and has some other structural faults as described above.
