Has August had all his vaccinations? If not he is at risk if you are taking him on grass that is used by other dogs.
I wonder how much information you were given by his breeder? They should have given you details of worming and vaccination. They should have shown you the parent's health certificates and any vet check he had been given. They should have given you a diet sheet showng what they were feeding him on and how much he needed each meal.
If he is KC registered they should have given you his registration papers.
He is a handsome little lad, with lovely dark eyes, but he does look a little long nosed. It is possible this may improve a little as his head matures.
From your photos I do wonder if his jaw may be overshot, which would mean that there is a definite gap between his top set of teeth and the bottom set? This would explain the slight ski slope look of his muzzle..
