Yes, she does have a steep croup and a steep upper arm, but that is not all bad. A steep croup allows for more reach under the dog from the rear although it does reduce the amount of follow thru behind as well. She has a long upper arm, which I prefer to a short one, no matter the angle. It has more ability to absorb the shock of landing. She is definitely a runner in build.

Yes, it but it isn't necessarily a problem for her. It tends to be more of an issue with dogs that have to trot all day (tending dogs) or weight pulling dogs that need the power. Her speed and power at a run come from a flexible back and a double supsension gallop. She looks like a sighthound in the running pictures.
