Pongu's Hips

Neutered male GSD mix, 4 years old (he was a pediatric neuter at 16 weeks old, if that makes a difference). I had these done for OFA evaluations but the results aren't back yet.

The reason I had his hips checked is because I'm trying to plan out our future sports, and I didn't want to sink a ton of time/money into training a new sport if my poorly bred rescue mutt was going to break into pieces physically just when we got to a point where he might be able to handle the mental stresses of trialing.

According to the ortho and the PT specialist we're good to go for most sports, though. So I'm mostly just tossing this picture up as a reference example, since I don't think there are too many mutt OFA films out there.
