Is it normal for a 7 month old Stafforshire bull terrier to frog sit?
He does it when he lays down (all flat) and sometimes when he sits….The weather here is very hot it is approximately from 25 to 35°C

Thanks,

I am inclined to say yes although I’m not quite sure what exact position that is. Does he seem to be uncomfortable or have trouble sitting down or getting back up? If you are concerned that he is uncomfortable X-rays could help diagnose any displasia. However, 7 months may be too young X-ray as he is still growing so I would talk to your vet. If he is not showing a discomfort then I would say that this could be completely normal for your pup. Staffys are pretty agile dogs!

It’s completely normal. I have owned pits and stratfordshires my whole life and they all do it. It’s because they have so much muscle structure through their thighs and rear.
