I'm sorry to say that it is a genetic problem and your breeder should be notified. I believe it is called "eastie, westie" feet and is a conformation flaw, but don't have the health and soundness ramification that bowed, dwarf legs can. I'm not sure how it effects their legs.

From what I have read here...easty westy feet have no effect on health or development. Even if they do not meet conformation standards. And your pups legs look pretty straight through the knees. So I would not worry, unless you are seeing problems.

I know people with feet like that. Legs look fine, so there's probably no worry.

I am planning on doing agility with him. He is in a puppy/begginer class now, will this effect him? He is 8 1/2 months old.

Cassie might have that too? I thought she looked like a seal, but it seems to cause no problems. I wondered if it was normal also.

Havaneseare a small enough breed that they don't jump very high in agility anyway. A big one like Kodi jumps 12", while many jump only 8". If even thoseheights concn you, consider NADAC events. In NADAC, there is a "preferred" division where your dog jumps the next height down. So for Havs that would be 4" or 8" depending on size. You only ned to request to be put into "preferred"... There is no requirement that you prove the dog is unfit to jump higher fences or anything.

I wouldn't worry about it. The legs look straight and how many people have you seen with feet like this and all I've seen (alot) and didn't cause them any problem

How tall is Kodi and how much does he weigh? I think Miller might be on the bigger side to.
