Remember you have German Showlines as well as North American showlines. The more extreme North American Showlines are the ones that are often criticized as "hock-walkers" with the very low back end. Extreme German Showlines are more often termed "banana backed".

Your dog is from German Showlines. The VA before the dog's name is a high German conformation title which is an indicator. Also typical is black and red saddle coloration.
