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.

The butt looks good to me, and the front is even better. I think she is probably still growing into her body. Casie rather looked like he'd been riding a horse for too long too when he first arrived, and he was 12 months old...if you are very concerned have the vet check out her hips the next time you are in the office.
