I am new to this forum, and new to owning GS's. I had to rehome my recent dog, Kyzer, pit/catahoula curr mix, because ohio's stupid law, and i'll be moving there within this month. My fiance went out and bought me an american white shepherd, non registered,but purebred, parents were on site, for fifty bucks. well when i brought him home, he was FILTHY, i gave him a bath, and let him explore the house before going to bed, when i saw him try to run for the first time, he looked very wobbly, and i noticed that he has an arche in the middle of his back and that his legs kinda splay outward a little bit when he stands or when he's eating. while he was sleeping, i felt around on his hips, working teh legs back and forth trying to hear a pop, and heard nothing. was wondering maybe if i'm over reacting or not. he also does the bunny hop when running, but also know that's how puppy's first start running around. he's about 7 weeks old, doesn't look very old at all, was born on thanksgiving. anybody have any pointers?
