    That second pic makes me think of a quarter horse with that high rear end.

    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.
