A swimmer puppy moves about with both front legs out to the side of
the chest, in a paddling motion. They appear to be swimming when they move,
hence the name "swimmer puppy". The hind legs trail out behind with little
or no movement.
The description of the puppy is flat chested, flat abdomen, the front
legs become warped, moving outward and upward, the hind legs become splayed.
When nursing, the puppy usually arches its back extremely in a backward
movement. They do not flex at the neck anymore.
