The shot before this where he seems to be walking he is very down in his hocks. (just to state I am not 'dissing' your pup. This comes from HONEST concern about the sweet little guy) It not just him waiting.

I added some lines to show what I am talking about. Its not hair.


His hock is very close to the ground. If he was just standing under himself his back would not be nearly level. The other hind hock is also almost touching the ground.

I see what your saying.

Mmmm... I have never noticed his hocks before being that low. Right now he is standing and his hocks look NOTHING like they do in that picture you quoted.

Dak, I would still suggest taking him to the vet and having that checked out. Even if he doesn't do it all the time there may be something wrong, I have never seen a totally healthy dog stand like that at all. If there is something you can do to strengthen his legs now, you should definitely, definitely consider it. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Thanks PWC.

He has a vet appointment in 2 weeks for a shot (i forgot which one, *sad face*) so we will deff. get his legs checked out.
Hopefully its not serious or maybe its just something he does, or maybe its something that can't be reversed or fixed.
I am just thinking outloud.

it could be a weakness that with some exercises might help. I am sure its nothing too serious, just want him be as healthy as possible (so you he can spend a looooong time together)

It doesn't affect him running around, jumping around, bouncing everywhere, going up/down stairs, sleeping or anything else.
His legs, back and shoulders don't hurt when I touch him or lay him on his back or snuggle with him.

I hope its nothing serious either.

That's good. I would print out that picture to take in since he doesn't walk like that all the time, so the vet knows what you are talking about.
