About German Shepherd Dog : GSD Hindquarters | Hindquarters in German Shepherds

your dog is 10 weeks old --- still developing -- muscle hasn't even been built --- too early to make any opinion -- unless structure is obviously extreme , exaggerated , or totally unbalanced German Shepherds and Cow Hocks

MaggieRoseLee I agree, take some pictures and talk to your breeder. Help to know how their dogs grow and the rest of the litter is doing.

Pictures are a help so we can see what you are worried about.

Katos_Mom He is growing quickly, his paws are huge, seems like he's going to be a big dog.

I have him on Blue Buffalo Large Breed Puppy food.

10 Weeks Old, 'Knees' Inward, Feet Outward

I'm concerned about my 10 week old male GSD's back legs.

When he stands, his 'knees' point inward, and his feet point outward. They're not parallel to his front legs. It reminds me of a bunny rabbit.

Any thoughts? He was seen a week ago by a vet for his first exam, but will be going to the vet again in about a week for more vacinations. Is this something that needs to be brought up?
