Just adopted a new 4 1/2 week old male boxer puppy. He's a delight and a real joy to my family.

However, I have noticed when he walks he is somewhat wobbly, in his rear legs, at times. Is this normal at nearly 5 weeks?

I found a web page that described a "Wobbly" disease that Great Danes, Dobermans and Boxers can get, though most of the time it appears later. Should I be concerned?

I want the best for this little guy.

Cisco, your puppy was not old enough in my opinion to leave his mom. I notice your from Spokane Wa, can I ask where you got your baby? You said that you adopted him, did he come from rescue? i would think that he is just not use to all is walking around yet. Welcome to the board. How old is your puppy and what is his name?

Wow - that is WAY too young to be separated from the litter and yes at that young of an age they can be quite wobbly. Puppies do best, I have been told, being separated at 9-11 weeks old. Lexi was 10 weeks old when we got to bring her home. I would contact your breeder and question them about why they separated the litter so young. Good luck with your new baby and welcome to the board.
