I know he's gorgeous, thanks Also costed a handsome amount :P
Yup, his hips are perfect (apparently). He's grandson of our national champ (VA) and his parents were SG1 and SG2, and he walks just fine... so I think chances of hip dysplasia are far and few between.
Thanks for the link to the thread, but is there anything I can give him as supplement for better bones and muscles?

There was an older thread on here about carting to improve cow hocks.

He is a good looking pup, handsome.
This is my first GSD so i am cannot comment on the legs, i am sure some experienced member will chime in, there are lots of them here
Edit to add: does he have a good hip? does he limp when walking?

Can you show some pictures of him walking/standing so we can see?
Can you contact your breeder for their feedback?

how to improve cow hocked pup?
Hope ya’ll are doing good!
First thing first, since I live in a small town of Pakistan, we don’t have qualified vets around.
My GSD pup is about 7-month old and in perfect health other than his hocks… he is purebred, from champ bloodlines. He seemed ok till he was 3 mo, but then I started feeling if he’s cow hocked, and now his hocks touch each other when he’s standing (sometimes even cross each other). I just want to know is there anything I can do to improve his condition?
Additional info: I take him for a 30-min walk in the morning and play with him in mud/dirt in the eve (as suggested by a friend) for about 30-40 minutes. I also give him a tablet that has calcium, vitamin D (and couple other components) once a week.
Look forward to your insightful suggestions.
