nice looking pup. clean his eyes and trim his nails. where's
the tray for the crate?

boy those pasterns are pretty downed --- examine your dog's diet

crate looks much too small - it is butting up against that wall so we are seeing all of it ? dog can't lie down in there ---

He was born like that and that's not the crate he stayed in.

His pasterns were like that at 8 weeks old when I got him from (**** Breeder name Removed by Admin- PM poster for more info **** )

Oh my gosh! Those are just terrible.

Your puppy needs canned milk and needs to walk on rocks! When they are forced to use their toes, they get tight balled, perfect feet and the pasterns will get much stronger. The milk will help the bones.

I can't believe the breeder would have just sold you a puppy with feet like that! If we EVER have puppies with bad pasterns they stay until the feet are fixed! One of the worst things you can do is put them on a blanket or towel that will slip - our puppies are kept on rugs so their feet stay strong and they don't slip all over the place, ruining their bone structure and their feet!

^^ And you don't breed the dogs that produced those pasterns again, right?

If dogs are producing terrible pasterns, their bone structures could be compromised. A good breeder would never breed that again on purpose. Unfortunately, most people don't believe that bone health is very VERY hereditary. I cringed when I saw that little black pup's paws. I imagine the leg bones that are hitting the ground with no protection are in a lot of pain every day!
