Staffie cross with Stretchy Legs

Hi, I have got a staffie cross English bull terrier puppy who is 6 months old. I'm asking about him as he has frogs legs he can stretch out far back look funny but looks painful too but he loves doing it as is always ok after. I just need to know if this is normal thank you - Catherine

 

Hi Catherine,  Like people, some dogs just seem to be more flexible than others! The fact that he stretches his legs out is no cause for concern. Quite on the contrary, it suggests that his hips and knees feel absolutely fine to him, so I would not be worried about this.

Best wishes
