in many of the pictures the pup is looking away from the bold terrier - tell your sister in law to not let the dog get too bossy . The GSD just does not look like it has the energy or spirit to deal with "rusty" who probably just wants a romp with someone his own size. It will come . The GSD will get the wind in its sails -- soon -- I hope.
Looks like a nice dog .

Thank you for the replies! I would like to reiterate that this is NOT my dog, it is my sister in law's dog and lives in a different state than me so I haven't seen him in person, just pictures. I was so happy to hear that they saved him from being abandoned, and since he was on a busy road possibly being hit by a car.
My concerns were 1) how his front legs bow slightly out from the front view and 2) How large the nobs are above his paws which give the appearance that they're protruding forward.
Also, like I said, I have a very general, limited knowledge of what knuckling over is. I was hoping people would see them and feel compelled to say "nope those legs look perfectly normal" or "no they don't look right I would have them checked out".
Here are a few more side pictures..

I think the OP was worried about the knobby pasterns .
Okay will post the video -- interesting on many planes ---

Not really a test, how they walk when they get DM. The vet called it knuckling it over does it have another name?

no shepherdmom , what you show are a test for a spinal problem, sponylosis , DM .
I have a 40 minute video showing this , talking about this , many x rays shown , examinations of real dogs --- but it is in German .

looks alright. Just one thing , clip the points off his toe nails , they are a bit long .
picture 3 and 4 , ahh sad face, looks like pup has seen some hard times.
very kind of you to take him in . I think with a bit of time and good food he'll be a very fine dog . He deserves the chance .
Shame on those people .

I think they are usually talking about the rear feet when they talk about knuckling over in a German Shepherd.
