Stark @ 5.5 Months old

Stark is 5.5 months old now and so I thought I would post a few pictures of him. I have a concern with his front left leg, it seems like when he is sitting it turns to the outside. It could be just the way he is sitting, he is still a puppy but I was hoping to get some feedback on that as well as his overall development so far. He has been to the vet and they told me to watch it, I was also wondering if I should make a appointment at the ciropractor to see if they can determine if it is something I should worry about.

Anyways, here he is, my little guy.. Stark.









These were from a month ago.

Stark is handsome and the same age as Benny. Benny does that with his leg sometimes too. I think it is a puppy thing.

That's what I was thinking too, but my trainer keeps telling me I should look into it more.

I did mention it to my vet the other day when Stark went in to get weighed (we do this every couple of weeks) and he said it looked okay and to just keep an eye on it.

My trainer has works mostly with Mals and Sibes and hasn't been around a lot of Shepherds, especially pups so I have to keep that in consideration too, she just wants the best for "her" dogs and I thank her for even noticing something like that.

Re: Stark @ 5.5 Months old

Stark is very handsome! I love his color.

He looks like he might be a tad easty-westy in the front, which is what might be making him turn that leg out.

Think about how you stand, Do you usually stand perfectly straight with your toes even? Probably not. Usually when we are comfortable we also turn a foot out.

Argos as a puppy turned his right front foot out. He's a little easty-westy in the front now but it's not as pronounced as it was when he was smaller.

Re: Stark @ 5.5 Months old

May I ask how old Agros was in this picture??? Only because he seemed to be the same size as my pup right now.....mine is male, 5 months and weighs 60 pounds. However, his ears (both of them) look like Agros' left ear and just are NOT standing!!! Just wondering when Agros' ears stood.....

Re: Simba 5 months

Thanks so much for your reply.

Yes, he is a East-West "mix" his mother is from West German show lines and his father is East German Working lines.

I thought this was a "puppy thing" as well but when my trainer keeps insisting on getting him checked I kinda worry. He isn't showing any signs of discomfort and isn't babying it at all and I only notice it once in a while, if he sits a certain way.

Argos is beautiful! It makes me feel better seeing another pup sit that way, it's exactly how Stark sits.

Thanks so much! You put me at ease.
