Default Bane's gait is weird

Hey guys i recently acquired Bane, he is 3 months old now. His hind legs are bit weird. The knee joints are close to each other.. sometimes almost touching. The breeder told me that this is due to bane living on a concrete floor and having no place to stretch is legs or run. Both his parents are fine. He told me that walking will fix this problem. I am kind of worried. Is there anything else i can do to help.
P.s i cant take him to a vet for this. Vets in my area are worse than quacks. They are just money launderers and dont even know the basics. i will try uploading a picture or video tommorow

My dog had a weird wobbly bouncing gait at that age through about 6 1/2 months. I thought for sure Hip Dysplasia . He has completely evened out though . I did several posts here on it and was told some showlines have an awkward gait as pups. The more experienced people here may ask you about his lines , and may be able to help more Do you have any video of his gait?

Its called cowhocked, and its not necessarily a problem. My pup was cowhocked but is straightening out at 11 months old.

I contacted the breeder and showed him the video. He says he will be fine with exercise and insists it happened because puppy was in a cage since birth. He also offered me a refund if i want. What should i do. Really tensed situation.

he is so stinken cute!!! Looks normal to me Puppies are clutzy/uncoordinated, slopppy walkers when small..He looks a little cowhocked but again, normal for a puppy to be a sloppy walker, their legs go everywhere..

That was very nice of your breeder to offer a refund, but at this point, I'd say it was just "sloppy puppy" movement..wait till he grows up more
