As a buyer, hips that rate "fair" don't bother me if everything else is what I like / what I want. Sure you take a chance, but you take a chance with any hip rating in my opinion. Fair is still passing/not dysplastic

I should add, I've had a couple of gsd's with Fair hips, and they never had any hip issues, were active dogs living until 13 years of age

Masi, was rated a 'good'.
