Need some help... Pleeaaasssee :)
This is my current work in progress, its not very good :oops:. Im still fixing the ears and one part of the neck... Anyway, this is my first time EVER doing any shading, and I am utterly clueless... Can anyone please give me some tips and advice? I hope the link works...

I think it looks really good! There are only a couple of things that I saw to fix (looking from a photo that seems close to the angle as yours):
1) The neck looks a little thin, but widening that is no big deal
2) Neck is a little long
3) Bring the back and rump up more to deal with the neck issue

Taking out my tablet and doing a quick redline over the doodle to say what I mean:

As for the shading, looking to a reference photo is the best advice I can give. First shade in the lighter features then go in and shade the darker ones in.

*edit - the line over the eyes is just so I could see its angle relative to the nose. The eyes look awesome!

Thank you so much, I will start fixing it soon. The problem with the shading is I diddnt use a refrence photo, I did that out of my head which is why the neck is abit funny, so Im kind of just winging it
