Since Canaan dogs are so rare in the US, it is not likely you got one and didn't know. They would have to come from a breeder and there are only a handful of Canaan dog breeders in the country. It is hard to say why he runs like that but my first guess is he may have hip problems. I would definitely have him checked by the vet.

What he said is true about the canaan dog being a rare breed. BUT My mother rescued one when I was 15. She was lost and walking around a parkinglot on Christmas Eve. She was about 2 years old at the time. The BEST dog we have ever had! She had hip problems that caused her runing look odd. She was solid black with a little white on her neck. You might have a mix if it is grey. But enjoy your Canaan! Very rare and loyal dog. Take care :)
