    Sometimes it's due to nutrition, sometimes not.

    Thanks Laura. So it kind of looks like a bend in the leg?

    Yep, the wrist bends forward instead of being straight up and down. There is always a little bump, showing the growth plates, but should not be extreme. I'll see if I can find a "normal" puppy bump.

    This is Raven at 6 weeks



    You can see a very slight bump on her wrist, showing the growth plate, but it's not knuckled over.

    Now compare it to a photo that has been digitally enhanced to make it knuckled over.

    I love how puppy pudgy Raven is in this picture! With her puppy belly skin. =) She's so pretty. (but Jake still gets me with that face. I love his face)

    Oh, I see. So if a puppy is knuckled over, it could mean poor nutrition or poor breeding? Sorry if I sound dumb, but I had not heard that term before.

    It's a structural fault. I wouldn't necessarily say poor breeding but maybe doubling up somewhere on faults which isn't smart breeding.♠

    Does this condition correct when the puppy grows?
