He isn't that skinny, really. He looks roached, which would make the spine more prominent. But he has decent muscling, so he isn't malnutritioned.. he just isn't FAT like most danes :-/

I do agree that his structure is NOT good at all...

And with his size and awesome structure, I'd rather he be a bit thin than a bit fat....

I don't know about "poor dog". sure he's huge and his structure isn't pretty but he looks happy. Love the photo of him drinking from the tap lol.

I saw a video of him a while back and couldn't get past the thought that his movement is just not right. And his rear legs seem to shake? I hope it doesn't hinder him in years to come.

He's awesome! I agree he looks a little weak in the hind end. He seems to have great owners who love him though and I'm sure if it becomes a problem for him they will have him welll taken care of.

I would think he'd have a lot of joint issues just from the size and poor structure. If he had more angles he'd likely be shorter too. Hope it's nothing major.

Yeah I do not like fat Danes at all but I still stand by this boy is underweight. However, yes under is better then over.

The way he was walking seemed painful, imo. But he seems to have loving owners, and I feel as though they are giving him a good home!

Oh and they have said they are working with a vet. He does seem very loved and taken care of.

Based on the picture I felt kind of bad for him, but seeing the video - nah. The owners seem to really love him, he looks like he leads a good life and has good vet care. 80% of the dogs in the world would love to live that life.

I agree he looks really - unsteady? - on his feet. But, as awful as it sounds...I can't imagine he has a spectacular life expectancy. Something else may hit him before arthritis really sets in.
