huntergreen op...have you tried glucosamine with msm. i just started Resources joint support plus for my airedale. 5 days later i am seeing improvement. he is a month away from 10 y/o. fortunately the warm weather is here and hopefully you have a place for swimming which will build up some muscle. start with xrays, and then if needed to rule out a spine issue. keep in mind, i am not vet or a vet tech.

Chip18 Keep us updated glad to help.

Regardless of whatever the issue is you might want to keep in mind these if mobility continues to be an issue:

This one is.. uh crap! Rocky is an OSD GSD 116lbs and the large is to big for him??? I can't use the back half at all because the attachment straps are to short???

But I did "make" the front half work and the handle is great for helping him when needed.

But this is the one I'll be getting next:
Help 'Em Up Dog Harness | Hip Dsysplasia | Dog Carrier

Just somethings to bear in mind.

You are wise being proactive and asking..along with other research you have certainly done. I'll be hopeful it is something other than DM. Regardless, you have a wonderful dog and Sadie is fortunate you care as much as you do about her well-being.....

Sorry I can't offer anything more pertinent to your current concerns.
