8 week old puppy walking on hind legs, hes seems to be very weak when walking.

Hey everyone my 8 week long coat gsd seems to have weak hind legs. He doesn't tumble much but when he walks his lifts his hind legs really high sometimes and seems to lack strength is this normal?

Can you post video? Some wgsl dogs can be cow hocked, not sure if that's what you are seeing though.

Thanks everyone. Breeder has informed me that they have only been actively walking for 2 weeks so I am hoping he just needs to gain some strength.

That does NOT look good. He looks lame in the second half of the video.

I would get the vet to check him out ASAP!

If he is really 8 weeks he should have been walking longer than 2 weeks. Could he be younger?
Springbrz and Sunsilver like this.
