|my boy diesel||i am wondering if poor angulation in front has any correlation with elbow dysplasia?|

|lhczth||The short upper arm is not just a problem in working lines. It is a breed problem and, IMO, worse in the show lines and will be very hard to correct. The most common angulation problem in working lines is straighter shoulders and often a lack of overall balance.|

|MichaelE||I can certainly live with it. I never noticed it 'til now. Thanks for the link. I'll read up on that.|

When I was told Hans has short upper arms, I did a search here and found multiple threads on this issue.
Looks as if it is hard to get rid of that without sacrificing other, more important traits.
Here is one good thread:

Besides the obvious answer of 'breeding', how is this being allowed to continue in working lines? I did not know it was an issue, nor did I ever think Lisl's upper arms were too short until now.
I have never studied her from this angle before. I'm always looking at her from above and it was not really noticable to me.
It doesn't seem to affect her gait or agility ability.

|lhczth||Short upper arms are a huge issue in the breed. No worse than most I see.|
