I will do my best to answer your question.

It is important that you are satisfied. Feel free to ask any additional questions until you are satisfied.

Once you are satisfied I would greatly appreciate a positive rating so that I may be compensated for my time.

I can understand your concern regarding your puppy.

That breed of dog is predisposed to having back / spinal cord injuries.

I would not be concerned about a back having a curve to it in general.

As long as your puppy walks/runs normally, is not painful along the back, urinates/defecates normally, and doesn't drag his legs...I wouldn't worry about it at all:)

Please feel free to ask any further questions.

Please consider giving me a positive rating so that I may be compensated for my time.
