    Question Dozer runs sideways...

    is this normal? Like, the back 1/2 of him is off to the side kinda. haha that makes a funny picture, but seriously, is it just something they do or could there be something wrong?

    He is just doing his John Wayne impression!

    Yes, it's normal. Our Zeus did this, my husband thought it was because he was top heavy and had a small butt that the backend would just bounce and swing to the side when walking.

    Daphne is almost 5 months old and does this also. She looks like she desperately needs a front end alignment.

    Completely normal. Something about Bulldogs...they have terrible tracking. You may have noticed it is similar to an automobile you are following down the road that looks like the rear wheels are not following the front wheels. When an alignment is done properly the front & rear wheels track the same path. FWIW, a proper "4-wheel" alignment will fix incorrect tracking. A "front end" alignment will not.

    There is no known way to do a proper 4-leg alignment on a Bulldog.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind

    Nyala trots when she walks. Little Marilyn Monroe wiggle and when she runs, her butt shifts to to right.
