I have a puppy (9 months old) who for as long as i have had him seems to have control over his hind end MOST of the time. Recently i have noticed his rear moving almost in a circular motion. Today we were playing and he has wear marks on his pads like he is pivoting, like i thought i saw. Sometimes he does it sometimes not. He doesnt cry or seem to be in pain. He is with me 97% of the time. He goes to work with me, everything. It seems pretty obvious he has a issue, but is it something i need to have looked at now? He has always had disfigured ribs (flared out on one side) but is this related? I know his family, and extended family no one else has these issues? Anything will help. Everything i have read doesnt seem to fit. Thank You.
I don't know if by pads you mean feet or bottom. But if he is wiggling his bottom and acting kinda funny down there. Like maybe a dog who needs to go .. sort of its hard to explain. It could be his anal glands need to be expressed. It's not specific to the breed that I know of.. but more to dogs with a sensitive stomach. sometimes it just happens. then never happens again.. but whatever you find I hope it's nothing serious and wish you much luck
