Holy crap. Someone do something about that poor dogs pasterns. If that last picture is what they currently look like right now, you have bigger worries than how long his nose will be.

Can you bring your puppy to places where he'll have an opportunity to climb, run freely up and down hills, and move around on very soft surfaces (loose dirt or sand)?

His pasterns - think of heel/ankle/wrist, on a human - look like they could use support through different types of exercise and perhaps diet as well, so he can grow and develop well. If you search this forum for "pastern" you'll find some different threads with some good info.

Just in case the OP doesn't realize that you meant 'pasterns' instead of 'patterns', which could be misinterpreted as
'coat patterns'

Here are a few threads that you might take a look through, and there are many more if you do a quick search.

Each dog is different, but there are links, ideas, success stories, and different member's opinions in here.

It would probably help out if you could use a different means of uploading pictures. The first on looks great.

If you would take the time to read what the original posted wrote you would see that the picture of the dog with the soft pasterns is a brother from an older litter. Poor owner is probably totally freaked out by the replies thus far.

If the OP's pup does indeed have the same "legs" front and rear then the pasterns may suspect as well. A picture of the pup would help clarify. Walking on sand, rocks, and keeping them off slick surfaces can help with down pasterns. Look into diet as well.

Please post the parents names or the pedigree if you can, this helps. For the pedigree aficionados this can help get to a better guess vs a tiny amount of information contained in a picture. A picture can be worth a 1000 words they say but a picture and pedigree can provide 2000K. ~
