These are perfectly normal radiographs of a 7 month old Dachshund. The reason I decided to post them is because they demonstrate just how much we have changed the anatomy of dogs through selective breeding. If these were radiographs from a 7 month old wolf, or even a Golden Retriever we would think something was very wrong. In nature the “S” like curves of the fibulas and short, squat look of the femurs would mean an unhealthy animal but this is exactly how we have bred Dachshunds to look. One could argue and some do, that it is still unhealthy…
