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?
Will definitely go and get the pup checked out now, all these scares are eating away at me. He seems happy and is running around a bit more today, but maybe ill take the advice from this forum and not the breeder.Agree with Pawsed! Get this checked out NOW! If there are serious problems with the pup's joints, the breeder needs to be held responsible. The longer you keep the pup, the more likely the breeder is to say "Oh, it was something YOU did to cause the problem!"
Took him to one walk in vet clinic today and he said things look to be fine, told me it looks like he grew up on slippery floors and that he will grow out of his walk. I'm going on Wednesday to a vet recommended by a family member and see if his conclusion is a little more informed. I will keep this post updated just so everyone cane follow along if they like. He said the King Shepherd/Long Coat GSD has a different timeline sometimes depending on the breeders and to just keep an eye on him.sorry there is something wrong --
overall the pup does not look to be in good condition -- robust health does not come to mind
the dog might have soft tissue injury from being stomped on by a larger dog
this is one of the risks when you mix very young pups with pups from an older litter ,
or with the general population of adults
