New member here, first time Dobie owner too!

Hello Everyone! I'm from Arizona and got my baby boy Dante a few weeks back. I picked him out when he was 6 weeks old and took him home when he was 8 weeks. He is now 11 weeks (12 weeks on Tuesday, January 1), weighing about 25 pounds, and currently in the posting process.


Four days after we started posting, standing already!






Playing with our other dog, Lucy (Greyhound/Australian Kelpie Mix).





Daddy!!

Instead of the greater than (<) and less than (>) symbols you need to use brackets ( [ & ] ) for this forum. That will get the images posted.

Welcome to you and your pup.

Is it just me or does it look like the pup's front legs are bowing out?

I don't know much about the subject but I searched out some threads for you...

Thank you for the links, but me, the breeder, nor my vet see anything wrong with him. The only picture I can see that make his legs look a bit odd is the first one. It's a weird angle and he was partly on his tippy toes because I was holding up a a toy to get him to pose in that position. he didn't really want to sit still. But again, thanks for the links to those other threads! It's something I'll watch for.

Welcome!

The legs were the first thing I noticed as well. He certainly is cute, and I'm sure a second vet's opinion wouldn't hurt!

Hi from Scottsdale, AZ
I am a long time dobie owner and recently lost my boy at 8. He was my greatest love. I have a female as well, but will at some later point be looking for another boy. I was wondering what breeder you got Dante from?
