Carlie

If it's a non-human, non-Pit Bull, family member, post it here!

Carlie, our Dachshund foster ( :D ) has deformed back legs. She also has asymetrical nipples although I won't post photos of it, they are arranged in a zig zag pattern on her abdomen.
Has anyone else seen this type thing???

How many nipples are females supposed to have? Saydee has like, a billion. :|

I think 4 sets. Carlie has them but they are zig zagged on her belly, they are not across from each other!! :? Not that it matters of course but I'm curious - if it has something to do with her funny legs too??

I've mentioned it to a tech at work before and *I believe* the answer I got was that there wasn't really a set amount and they were often not symmetrical, I wondered if it varied by breed?

Saydee has 6 sets. They are all symmetrical, I was just curious cuz I noticed she sure has a lot of ta-tas. :oops:

Is that the same sort of improper growth from lack of nutrition? Looks to me like she resembles in her back legs, what I've seen more often in front legs.. :|

Yeah - I read that they were bred to be "dwarves" and their long bones close prematurely so that's why you get bending in the front. Bending in the back is a fault or DQ, I forget which. So I guess it can, or does happen...
