Yeah his rear is higher then his front.definitely poor conformation. He will probably have hip issues later in life. That's what you get when you breed two dogs that shouldn't be bred unfortunately

Really, I didn't know there was a correlation to hip dysplasia with that conformation. German Shepherds suffer from it often and their hips are lower than their shoulders.

Usually it happens, sometimes you luck out and it doesn't.

I"d watch for shoulder issues too. A lot of his weight is on his front legs with his rear that high.

He really is a handsome guy. Is he one of those that has to be brushed regularly? He looks like he'd have that heavy undercoat under that longer hair.

His coat is weird. It's super thick, double coated. I check his coat for mats just in case . I use a wire dog brush every now and then on him. His tail is like a golden retriever fur but the rest of him is thick. It's hard to describe, like a thick polar bear coat with thick dense undercoat. He gets mats occasionally, which we cut or brush out. His fur is very soft and sheds like crazy

I had one like that, that's how recognized his might be the same. She didn't mat but dang when I brushed her I would have a whole nother dog. She had the thick heavy mane too, that was a royal pain to brush out.

I was going to ask if you're Duke's human but now with Moe in there I have to ask if you belong to both of them?

Duke belongs to Moe. Moe is very attached to me. Duke will go to anyone, but follows me around more as I am the food giver lol.
Sometimes they both join me in my office,but it's mostly Moe who hangs out with me while I work and Kashi too. Sometimes my other cat Timmy will hang in my office but that's rare

The dynamics for how our furred ones interact with us and each other is really rather complicated. As long as we understand the basics balance is so easy to achieve.

My black cat, Jake, has decided he needs to sleep with me at night. Luckily he's pretty easy to share a bed with. He doesn't want to lay on me but just so we're touching.
