I think he's pretty nice, but I don't think he's standing up square. if he is, then he would be what's called "camped under" in his hind legs, and even his front.

square him up better on flat ground, and take the photo at an angle that is just perpendicular to the center of his barrel, neither looking down at him nor looking upward.

Is he a Waler? Has the look...
Better photo.. try to stand him up square and have the camera opposite just ahead of his hip and the "film" plane parallel to his spine. I think he might be a good deal better than this photo shows.
