It is really hard to determine the situation from a video and especially at this age. ow he is 7 months old, developing more muscle and it is almost gone.
Pups go through awkward stages. I have mine checked by a vet on a regular bases to monitor his growth and development. It might be overkill but I am rather safe than sorry and it is peace of mind, knowing that he is OK.
Just because you get the advice to take him to a vet, doesn't have to mean something is wrong.

Thank you everyone! I need to take him to the vet anyways because we just got him. But I love him already and I really don't want anything to be "wrong" with him. It is almost as if he is showing symptoms of DM, but at the same time, he gets up fine, runs fine, jumps etc...Aside from the vet I might try some exercises to get him to pay attention to his rear end and maybe that will help a bit. Otherwise, we will see how it goes over the next month or so.

Update

I took him to the vet today for his "well-puppy" visit. The vet group specializes in ortho pedic surgery, which I thought was good for the situation. Vet thinks it is just a loopy/lazy puppy phase. His trot and run are good. He said to keep an eye on it, if it gets worse, bring him in (obviously) otherwise he wants to re-check in 3-6 months. He really didn't seem concerned at all. I am soo happy.

Thanks again for the quick replies and input!

I didn't see the video but if he's a puppy he could just be in an awkward stage. How can I get to the video?

If you click on the photo twice on the first post it will take you to photo bucket to see the video.

What Capone said, just click on the picture up on the first post and it's actually the video.
