Yikes, I didn't know it but I think my dog is cow hocked (heels in) too. She gets tons of exercise, runs like a deer and is very agile. Will have to watch it. Her front feet point out somewhat but she gets around just fine and moves like machine at a trot.
Many dogs are a bit cowhocked especially when young and growing. I see mostly show lines with bad cowhocks (and looseness in general) but I've seen some equally bad working lines as well. Just being "cowhocked" isn't necessarily a problem, depends on how severe it is. The OP's dog sound severe since it is interfering with her ability to do normal things.
