We go to our local off leash park every day. For the past couple months there has been a Vizsla puppy around. They are quite common in the area. This particular puppy is a very sweet floppy cartoonish dog. He has lots of extra skin and long dangly ears and that sweet Vizsla face. Everybody loves him. And yet seeing him makes me oh so very sad. The dog is probably nearing 5 months now. And when he was little I was hoping he was just extra clumsy because he was so young. The older he gets the more I feel that it is not. This puppy doesn't run. When he tries to run he has a very awkward pained looking gait. Sort of like he is hobbling along. It is very hard to tell what might be going on. He has a rather curved, roached back. He has always had a lot of puppy acne but other than that he is very alert and playful. I do not think his owner suspects anything is wrong. I believe he got him from a local backyard breeder. I think about how when Misha was that age he used to zoom and zoom and zoom and nothing could stop him. Vizslas are one of the fastest dog breeds in the world. He should be able to run. But he can't. I still hope things will get better as he ages. But I don't know.
