    Our giant german shepherd,is 14-15 years old; is having trouble standing long periods.

    His name is Rock; large and lovable. Has some difficulty standing when laying down and when he runs, his hind legs are together like a rabbit, needless to say he's not very fast. Anything we can do to strengthen his aging legs?

    German Shepherds are prone to hip displasia, which can give them difficulty standing and walking in later years.

    How 'bout taking your dog to the vet? That would be the smart thing to do whenever your dog is having difficulties.
