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.

They have no idea what she's mixed with. A rumor was a rat terrier, but there's no way to tell. Her mom was definitely beagle.

She's not in any pain and runs and scampers like a normal puppy. And yes, next time she's at the vets, I will be asking them, but I didn't want to make a special trip if it wasn't necessary.

Took some doing, but here's a picture of Meg from behind. The bottom picture looks more normal to me.

Thank you so much! I'm a paranoid dog mommy (especially when they're this new!). I'm glad she looks normal, and I figured that would be the case.

I'm attaching a probably not so good picture of Meg's face. She's so squirmy it's hard to get a good shot. Thanks for compliments on her. I think she's pretty cute too!
