LOL, I am not sure what you are asking about??? His nerdies?
Mary - look at the rear end of the two dogs- see how the dog on the left has nice muscular rear hips and the dog on the right doesn't? Thats what they are referring too

Something does not look right. the pic by itself you dont notice much but when compared to the other dog...there is a big difference...

Have they had him checked out by a vet....to me this is just going to mean hip problems in the future if not already...is the dog as active as other dogs...does it hender it in any way? Never seen that before...what do you think about it?

It does look odd - like his rear hips are not properly placed - but I have not seen anything like it before either

How old is the dog? That makes a big difference bc he could be going through an awkward phase, other than that I would take him to Vet, it could just be his build it could be a health issue, dunno.

Hi there,he has been seen by a vet who was vague,they are going to seek a referral,i just wanted to se if anyone here had seen it before.
He is 18 months old,he is very weak on the backend- to me it looks like muscular dystrophy or something like that.
I havnt seen it before but his gait is a bunny hopping one,he is really wobbly at times- i supect a poor prognosis but we shall see.

Good luck with that. A bunny hop gait is not a good sign. usually signals some sort of muscular atrophy or hip dysplasia. I'd be intersted in hearing his prognosis.

It looks like severe dysplasia to me.
