    Default Should I be worried?

    I guess Bella has always walked like this but I have become really aware of it this past month. She never acts as if she is in pain and she is very active. She goes up and down stairs no problem and jumps higher than I ever thought a bulldog could leap. But I am just worried that this might be a sign of some problems down the road. Notice how her back legs almost look bowed and walk very close together. She spreads them out when standing but when she walks they go close together. Am I just being paranoid or is this possibly just normal for some bulldogs? Sorry in advance for the up close and personal views of her hind areas.

    I think she has a cute behind, Buddy Boy does too he gave a 2 woof. Anyway my BeBe walks like that, and she does not have any problems that I know of.

    @Davidh (sigh of relief!) I still intend on getting it looked at but you have given me a calmness until then. I always get so worried about her and love her as if I gave birth to her. I just can't stand the thought of anything that will lead to surgery or life long issues for her. I am glad to know there is another bully out there that does this walk as well and has no problems. Hopefully this will remain true for Bella too. Oh and I've always thought she has a cute behind too. I'm obsessed with her little cowlick swirls on either side. I just think it's the cutest thing. i know I'm wierd, but I think bully's do that to their owners.

    These bullies do make us crazy! I am constantly checking up on Diesel on EVERYTHING (I have been freakishly lucky thus far)...it is at the point he sighs when I start looking him over! This bulldog thing has made me question ever having children... I can't even imagine what that is like...and I am a special education teacher (Autism)...I am used to differences and quirks! I am sure your baby is good...just another one of those odd bulldog things!

    @Katie9449 I do have kids...2 of them and I don't get half as nervous and paranoid as I do with my Bella. I think because dogs are just so diffferent from us that anything can be anything and with children, you usually have some sense of what it could be from your own experiences or others. Plus, Bulldogs are a "flawed" breed and I have gotten sooooo lucky with Bella thus far....I guess I'm just waiting for her major "flaw" to pop up and surprise me. Knock on wood that she just lives a long, healthy, happy, lucky life .

    Isn't that the truth, i was thinking the same thing, all my kids are grown and gown but I don't ever remember worrying about them as much. That sounds bad I'm sure, but like you said with kids you kind of had a clue.
    @Bella Cows Mama I'm glad you are having it checked out just to be sure but I'm sure everything will be OK. the ole bulldog shuffle haha

    Lupe has always had bow back legs. Very cute. No concerns from the Vet. We just keep an eye on her weight. And I am TOTALLY obsessed/in love with her; so don't worry. I think it's part of the bully package!!!

    My last bulldog (Ziggy) had the same thing with his back legs. His feet would face inward like yours. He lived to be 10! He was just fine. I did have him on some arthritis medicine as he got older.
