The vid says a mild brain disorder. But that covers a pretty broad spectrum. This is what they say she has: Cerebellar ataxia

I didn’t see where it mentioned a brain disorder. Good catch, @rojo.

I was going to say too many head injuries from always running into other dogs.

I thought it looked like hip or lower back damage had occurred during or before birth. I see I am wrong, but I decided to share that about myself.
The little song is funny.
Whatever is going on with the dog, it sure seems happy.

Yeah. And I love that word “fecken”. The other f word is so harsh, but I can live with fecken!

Wait…I saw the trailer on the end of the video. It’s a mild brain disorder. It’s operable, but very risky. Vet says the dog doesn’t know anything is wrong, and she’ll live a long and healthy life.

I have a cat that runs almost like that. He had seizures when he was a kitten so has one leg that has a mind of its own and he kind of hops and flips around the house. It doesn’t seem to bother him and he runs a lot less at 14 years old than he did as a younger cat.

Obviously, he doesn’t have a female to chase!

The owner is just having fun an is pulling your leg with a funny video. That dog can run if it would just settle down.

@gondwanalon I thought maybe so at first, but the more I examined it, the more I think he has an actual problem. There are a couple of different explanations for it.
