If your APBT is scooting along the floor on her haunches, she probably has clogged anal glands. Anal glands are located on each side of the anus, and they secrete a substance that enables your dog to pass her stool. When they become clogged, they are extremely uncomfortable, smell bad, and could get infected.

Your veterinarian can quickly unclog the anal glands. Blood or pus in the secretion is a sign of infection, so if either one is present, take your APBT to the veterinarian.

Only a healthy dog with sound hips can play like this. Make sure your dog's parents have been checked for hip dysplasia.
