He's tied in behind the knee, which means the strength of his flexor tendons is greatly diminished and making him prone to tendon injuries. He's also cut out under the hock, which will make him more prone to arthritis and hock injury later on. I just don't like his whole hind end, in general. He looks like he has a fairly flat hip, which would make it hard for him to engage his hind end. He's very straight through the stifle and appears cat-hammed, which results in insufficient power.
