new to Beagles - ques about my puppy

My husband and I both had beagles as kids (20+ yrs ago). We just adopted an 8 wk old beagle mix yesterday. She's still very skittish and aclimating to her new surroundings and her new sister (an 8 month old Havanese/Bichon).

So our question is what are her back legs supposed to look like? If you're looking at her from behind, she looks like she's been riding on a saddle (legs spread and rounded like a U). When she starts walking and her tail goes up, it's not as noticeable, which makes me think it's just stress and she's unsure. It almost looks like she's tucking her butt under when she's standing.

Opinions?

She looks normal to me too. They do tend to look a little bow legged when they are this young. I have a pic of my dog Rosa as a puppy that looks just like the first one of yours. I'll post it later when I get home from work.
