Australian Shepherd Weight Concern
I have a 9 mo. old Aussie and I am slightly concerned about his weight. He is very heavy in his rear and rather think on the sides. We exercise him quite a bit but he seems to tire easily – a little lazy, in fact.
Is there reason for concern? Or is this the normal body structure of the breed? His father was also rather "thick" and solid.
