Leg Problems For My Puppy

Hi, I have a dog named "Balls" and he is about to be 9 weeks old tomorrow on the 12th, I have done some research because I am really worried about his leg, or rather legs. One if his legs is a bit crooked and bowed. Is this normal for a pitbull? i was told he has high caliber bully blood and his dad is grandpup of juan gotti. Please let me know what you think, should I take him to the vet? please help, I am new to all of this and I love my pitbull very very much, I don't want nothing to be wrong with him =(.

Well you have to understand byb out there will tell you anything you want to hear. Byb of ambulls breed for looks and not for conformation or health or longevity of there pups. They just want to make massive hippos that mostly have health problems. It definitly looks bowed and crroked if you go through some abully pics like on craigslist and other mostly non kennel sites you will see the same problem in alot of dogs. In your pups lineage the leg was bowed and being byb they didn't take that dog out of their breeding program but continued to breed because maybe the dog had a big head or was extremely built. So with them not takin the dg out it has passed on to your pup through the litters of a horrible breeding program if you can even call it that. How much did you pay for your greatgrandson of Juan gotti with other high calliber bully blood.

I paid 200$, i love him very much I just don't know very much about pitbulls and i want to make him as healthy as a horse! i don't want nothing to be wrong with him should i take him to the vet? and the dad seemed fine and so did the mom, he is a ghenghis khan also. i am feeding him NUTRO PUPPY GOOD LAMB N RICE. should i change food? what should I do? =/


also the mom had 9 pups and 5 of them died.. 4 survived and he was the one that survived, and the house he was in was not all that great, his brothers were in kennels outside and he stinked really bad so i took him home with me because I wanted to provide a better home, i have a huge backyard and he always plays in the grass and play fights with my toy poodle lol

There is no reputable breeder out there that I know of that would ever breed a pup with that big of a problem. Like i said byb back yard breeders will tell you anything you want to hear. Unfortuneitly you paid 200 for a puppy that in the long run you will probly have to shell out thousands as more of his health problems begin to show up. The bitch loosing that many puppies should of been a hint that they do not know what they are doing they obviously didn't get there bitch health tested. Plus with that much loss she was probly way to young to breed. Since you love the pup so much keep loving her just know financially it will definitly be a factor and who knows what other things skeletal tempermental Nd other might be wrong

Why did the 5 of the puppies die? Was he vaccinated when you received him? I don't mean to sound like a jerk at all but if you don't know a lot about pit bulls then how do you know if they were ok? But besides that I thank you that you are providing a better home for him! And welcome to the forum!

They weren't like that? Does it hurt the pup when you touch the joints. Did he jump from smoewhere high? I would definitly go to vet and see what they say after x Ray. When they say pups won't be registered because we moved I don't get.

Sorry that you are having to go through this.I would definitely take him to the vet.You may be looking at surgery down the road.
If the dog is not registered then there's no way to tell what bloodline he is.And even if he has these bloodlines in a certain part of his ped,it doesn't matter if byb's have gotten ahold of them and been breeding them wrong.
But yeah I would take him to the vet.

It looks like knuckling over, which is not a genetic defect, and is not an indication of back yard breeding, or being a bad breeder. Knuckling over is easily treated with a special diet and sometimes leg braces. Results can be seen in a few days once you take him to the vet and get him started. The earlier it is caught, the better, and at his age there should be no permanent damage.

Here's some info:
