As a buyer I have always asked to see the pedigree of dam and sire. Having said this, Lola's dam and sire had excellent, however there were some highish scores on the sire's side further down the line.

Lola has HD - whether this was caused genetically or environmentally or both, I can't say.

Yes I always look at hip scores, does this guarantee excellent hips - NO.

if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
