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.

Two of my beagles (both tri-colored) look a little bow legged to me at times. I've decided that I really think it is just the colors that make it look that way though.

I wouldn't be concerned really until she's been with you for a month or two and you have time to get to know her and vice-versa. Also if she is a little bow legged it may only take a little growth to get her past it.

Any idea what she is mixed with? Perhaps the second breed mixed in there could have a more round legged stance also. Hard to say, but I don't think it is anything medically wrong.

Of course if she develops any other symptoms then a trip to the vet is certainly in order.
