I don't think I'd give up on her just yet,,I would definately try the swimming therapy,. Most puppies are little clutzers, and take time for everything to catch up growth wise.

She sure is CUTE! In one pic, not only do I see the "bow", but she almost looks a little "down" on her hocks? Maybe it's the pic.

I could just be a poor conformation fault, and if it doesn't cause her any pain she could go to a pet home, if she is badly built their is little you can do, i am confused though when you say she has perfect conformation, how can she when she has this problem?

Her conformation is great when stacked, although the stack doesnt last very long, she wobbles and falls.

She is Palsy. Confirmed and tested by her vet. She cannot last.

Your dog sound like it is doing something similar to what hers did.

She is now nearly one, and a lovely little girl

For quick reference:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

my partner and I recently bought a 8 week old pedigree staff. the day after we bought her we noticed she was doing this weird thing, she doesnt do it all the time maybe 5-10 times a day; she'll be playing or walking or sitting normally then all of a sudden she seems to lose her balance, her head tilts to one side on she kinda leans to one side, same side that the head tilts to, some times she'll fall over, if she does she tends to stay where shes fallen, other times she'll jsut walk or run around tilting to one side, her head always stays tilted when shes havin one of these turns. We took her to the Vets straight away, they thought it was an inner ear infection and gave us antibiotics and steriods, and told us to come back in a week. She's had all her tablets and is still doing it, we've taken her back to the vets and they've said they've never seen anything like it. they thought it may have been vestibular syndrome but the steriods would have sorted that out. we have to take her to see a specialist now and its going to cost us ***163;600 to ***163;1200! We have insurance, but i really dont trust insurance companies, Im sure they wont pay out, especially since we took her to the vets the day after the insurance policy was taken out. We really dont know what to do, she's fine in herslef, she never whines or yelps when it happens. Has anything like this ever happend to any one else?

just to let you all know we've been to the specialist. they kept her in for the day and did blood and other tests. we've got to wait til next week for the bloods to come and up to six weeks for the urine samples to come back. The vet said his gut feeling is that the tests wont show anything, the blood test were done to check for infectious diseases and toxins, as they could be the cause of this condition shadow has, something like parvo could have caused damage to the vestibular system (its what controls balance) but the vet thinks its unlikely. His gut feeling is there is some sort of damage to her brain, either it didnt form properly when she was in her mums womb or something since has caused it not to function properly. He said the next step is an MRI scan, which means we'll have to travel 400 miles as thats where the nearest centre is. The vet also said, if it is some sort of brain damage then there's nothing they can do for her as basically the damage has been done. He said she should learn to live with the condiditon and may get better, but she may stay the same, or she may get worse. So I have to wait for the bloods to come back first so they can rule out infectious diseases, then its an MRI scan to see if anything obvious looks wrong with her brain.

They finally figured out what it was, a "functional disease", which means she was born with micro bacteria in her brain and the fluid surrounding the brain, its not dangerous, its not hereditory, its just something that happens. She will grow out of it, and learn to adapt to it.
Basically - SAME symptoms as your puppy.
