- Figure A - overangulated hindquarter - classic and relatively common example of an overlong lower thigh [tibia]
- Figure B - Typical of todays German Shepherd Dog; sl. curved lumbar spine [lower hip/knee position] in that context, correct hindquarter angulation - balanced upper thigh [femur] and lower thigh
- Figure C - Much less common than it once was; straight level lumbar spine [higher hip/knee position] in that context, correct hindquarter angulation - short croup, and standing overstretched
- Figure D - Imbalanced overangulated hindquarter - extremely long lower thigh with too short upper thigh and short steep croup
- Figure E - Imbalanced hindquarter angulation ; Incraesing in its frequency; sl. curved lumbar spine, overlong upper thigh and slightly short lower thigh
Had lots of comments about the photos that Herr Schweikert used in his article on overangulation that I published on my website. Here are a few examples taken from my article that refers to this topic. http://www.louisdonald.com/a-general-overview-of-the-german-shepherd-dog.html.
