    I have noticed that Tyson looks like he is a little bow legged when you look at him from behind. I was wondering if this is the norm, or is it something I should be concerned about it? He does not appear to have any trouble walking or running or any of his other daily activities. Thanks :)

    A correct dog, when viewed from the rear, should form an inverted "U" shape.

    Here is the part of the illustrated Boxer standard that discusses rears:

    Hope that helps!
