The rest of the cervical vertebrae allows sufficient flexibility to convert your dog's neck to look behind directly, without moving the body.
Below the neck, thirteen thoracic vertebrae protect the spinal cord and the support of thirteen pairs of ribs that form a flexible rib cage to protect the heart and lungs.

The end of the rib cage, and seven lumbar vertebrae support the abdomen and lead to a deficit, which usually consists of three fused vertebrae, followed by a series of paragraphs that make up the tail fluke.
