    Default Back legs turn out

    My little pup 12 weeks old, her back legs/hips turn out, she runs and plays like any other pup. This don't seem to bother or hurt her. My vet stated that she was OK health wise but not to breed her, and her problem might even improve over time. Just wondering if someone else has seen this ?

    Yes, I think we need a pic to understand exactly what's happening with your baby!

    Agree, pic or video is needed, if you can? As long as he is just bow legged it should not be a health concern. Were xrays taken?

    I have never seen back legs turn out that much.... I agree they may improve over time, but I am also curious if your vet did an Xray?

    Agree with Lisa, this is quite severe in turning out, I would hope
    Vet took xrays to really have true idea of what puppy is dealing
    with, now and as she grows and has more weight over those hips.

    Have you talked to the breeder she came from about this issue?
    Do you have a sales contract from them?

    I think I'd take her to an bully experienced, orthopedic specialist
    to understand what long term dx & life might be.

    RIP beloved boy.
