It's most comfortable for him? That would be my guess. My dogs sleep in all manner of undignified positions.
if it is abnormal, it may be a sign of discomfort in his hips/hind end. Have you had him examined by a vet? Does he lay like that every time, or only sometimes?
Otherwise, why do you care? I don't mean that in a confrontational way--if you're trying for obedience and want a "sphinx" position, I'd have better advice. I just feel like there needs to be some more info here for me to help.
