Sure do! Some worse then others,
This is Sabi at about 18 months as near as I recall. As much as I adored this dog, she grew really ugly! Every couple of months her butt and her shoulders switched places and none of it was improved by thick bone and huge ears. I actually think your girl is very pretty and thought a worse looking dog may make you feel better, lol.
