Rear feet - Angle out

by barbara
(Milam County, Texas, U.S.)

I have a Pyrenees-Anatolian mix. She is 10 months old and about 80 pounds. Her rear feet toe-out quite a bit. I was wondering if this is normal.She does have the double dew claws on the rear feet also. thanks, Barbara the vet does not seem concerned at all

I also have a Pyrenees Anatolian mix. My keno is truly a lovey boy that is 7 months old. He had dew claws but ripped one mountain climbing so I had them removed. It's a pleasure to comment on someone else that has this mix. I have been told that they grow quite a bit from 15 to 18 months. My St. Bernard also grew that much and is huge. Keno is 87 at 7 months old so he will be a big boy which is normal. Yours will be big also. Just love this mixes personality.

Get X-rays!
by: Makenzie

I have a 10 month old Great Pyrenees who has the same problem. I took him to the vet to get x-rays just to make sure it was not hip dysplasia. Turns out he either broke his leg when he was a puppy before I got him or he was born with a deformity. I would have the vet do an x-ray ASAP because if it is hip/knees you need to start thinking of what method to use, when to get the procedure, and most importantly saving up money cause it will cost you. Hope for the best!

rear feet angled out

My purebred Great Pyrenees female has rear feet that angle outward. She is 5 years old and in perfect health. I thought that it was normal for the breed, that it helped them scramble up and down steep terrain.
