Buddy of mine picked up a pup about a year ago. The dog appears to be pidgeon toed. It's back paws splay outward about 30 degrees. He said the father was the same way. Is this a defect or normal for this breed. Does it have any health implications?
Pics? I've neer run across a GSP with club foot / pigeon toe.
Most common congenital abnormalities in the GSPs are:
Everted nictitating membrane
Von Willebrand's disease
In dogs it's called being "cow-hocked". It's passed on genetically. It can, not always, but can cause hip/movement problems later on in very active (i.e. hunting) dogs.
