Just wondering if Am Staff dogs always look a bit stiff in their getting up and walking. We just acquired one and we really like him. He's only about 1 year old and can play like one but mostly he likes to nap so I'm surprised by all the 'long walk' talks. Maybe it's living out in a country setting with other dogs that he is getting enough run around time. The main thing I'm wondering about is the stiffness in his walk just when he just gets up from laying around a bit. It seems more than it should be.

You should take him to a vet. There shouldn't be that much stiffness in getting up. That could mean hip issues, or arthritis or just stiff legs, but I would get it checked out.
