Yep defo, although they may look good that’s about it, I’ve seen whippet greys with cat feet that have had almost ever toe knocked up and then saluki type flat splayed feet and never had a problem with them

It's hard to make a judgement on a photo, but I like to see a bit puppy fat on a pup 👍 Cheers.

Looking at that dogs lack of muscle tone flat feet and long nails I would hazard a guess it doesn’t get out much. 

I’ve never had a saluki pup with puppy fat on them. And I’ve found Salukis feet are longer and not as tight as other lurchers.. they probably have the best feet of all too..  but with regards to

but with regards to the actual question asked; I take mine out from a very early age. Bushing, mouching about, etc.. I would intentionally lamp a rabbit until about 11/12 months old, but I would have expected them to have seen and chased plenty of rabbit just much about in the day time,

Hare feet...better than cat like showy toes, more durable.

From the second and third pictures I’d say it’s a bit lean. There’s no shame in that bud. I think you should just feed it more then you are. It shouldn’t have as many ribs shown or be as muscular at that age. Don’t be looking at measurements. Just pile the food in to that pup.

What are you feeding it? Don’t take this as a criticism btw.

But what sort of dry food? If it's cheap shite then it won't be worth the bag it comes in. You only get out what you put in. And also, I don't think that having food on tap is helping a dog's appetite at all. They tend to pick at it, feel constantly full so don't really guzzle down their food as a dog is designed to do. Dogs' stomachs are designed to eat fast until full, then not eat again for several hours, even pups over 8 weeks of age.

BTW, its feet look great.

Any spring in the toes is good but the vertical type cat foot is more vunerable, and has mostly been over exaggerated by show people. Big oversized feet with thick pads, thick nails and a slightly flattened out shape like you see on Saluki types and Wolves are the best feet that can run over anything. They should be called desert feet really.
