Almost all small dogs ‘walk funny’. They have the same set of bones as the all the other mammals, but that doesn’t mean they use them. Take the knees for example.
This Pomeranian has regular knees, but he does more the ‘goose steps’ than the walk. It’s just like Chihuahuas… Bending their knees to walk is too inefficient, their steps would be even smaller.
A friend of mine, use to call this type of walk: ‘knitting’.
