Alright, the design for this character is much better but she still needs some work.

First of all, what exactly is this limited ability to control plants? Keep in mind we're trying to avoid a battle of the canine super heroes, so it should be relatively weak and only of limited utility in battle.

As for the strengths, and weaknesses, you have four seriously massive strengths, but almost no weaknesses. Bone crushing jaws would make sense in a pit bull, but in a border collie that almost counts as a special power all by itself.

Her fur isn't thin. You can't say she has thin fur when it's clearly drawn thick. Also, she isn't small. Border collies are somewhere in the middle of the canine size range. Compare her to dogs like Untoten, a Brussels griffon, or Haystack, a corgi, and she's actually pretty big. The weaknesses you chose have to make sense for the character, you really just can't chose them at random. They need genuine thought and effort because you'll be using them to tell the story for the entire competition. She'll need two weaknesses to make up for the ones that don't really make sense, and an extra added on to compensate for her ability. (Since her strengths are pretty massive, at least one of the weaknesses should be pretty extreme as well to compensate.)

Here's the thing; if she can make an entire tree grow in an eyeblink out of nowhere, that isn't "limited." Trees are about as big as plants get. And that is useful in a fight, she could grow a root to strangle her opponent or something of that nature. It needs to be significantly less potent if we're to accept it.

Runt or not, she's still not a small dog. A female border collie is generally not shorter than 18 inches at the shoulder, while a brussels griffon like Untoten is half that height, at nine inches. And I'm sorry but we really can't have such a dramatic mismatch of the image and the weakness. Besides, her breed has thick fur so it doesn't make sense for it to be thin anyway. If you're having trouble thinking of weaknesses, we have a list of viable ones on our group FAQ page.

Alright. That being the case, you'll just have to move the jaw thing up into "abilities" on her written ref, and fix the two weaknesses. Since she won't have the plant power anymore you won't have to add the fourth one.
