Wow, that hind end is a mess! Poor guy! What struck me is pretty poor muscle tone, especially in his hind. He is IMHO too thin-it actually probably wouldn't hurt to take him to chiropractor.

Default Healthy!

Oh yea, this dog is healthy I'm sure. Sometimes dogs just seem to grow past even their natural breed... just like some dogs growth can be stunted. As long as they are feeding him enough (which it sounds like they are!) and give him the space to run around and get exercise, I'm sure he is as healthy as can be for a dog his size.

Wow. Some of that made me cringe.

I agree with what others have said re: his rear end and roach back.

What a heartbreaker

I find him skinny as his rib cage is pretty obvious.
