Thank you for your response! Today my husband carried her to the middle part of the stairs and she when the rest of the way down on her own! I think she may have not had any exposure to stairs before we adopted her. She still won't go up the stairs but I think with patience and time she will learn to climb up. I will definitely take your advice of giving her time to adjust to them. Im glad to hear that your GSD is fine with stairs now, even with is slight hip issues! It gives me hope that even if she develops some hip issues she should still be ok.
