|Lucky Paw||Thanks for the info guys, it confuses me too because she has been running so good and so fast that makes me thing its not a hip issue, i think se was beatten and she is just bruised. Im waiting for the vet to call me with an appointment day.|

Could be anything from a pulled muscle to a knee injury like Lee mentioned to hips. Your guess is as good as mine.
Regardless, your dog needs to see a vet.

|Jax08||Mine tore hers coming to a sudden stop on wet grass. It's not just the jumping you have to worry about. It's the full speed, sudden awkward stop as well.|

The pain with hyperextension of the hind leg is classic for a cruciate ligament tear. No more jumping in the air!!!
My sister was using soft frisbees to exercise her GSD earlier this year and she was jumping in the air for them. When the dog began to have difficulties, my sister took her to a vet. She was diagnosed with a luxating patella and partially ruptured patellar tendon.

Get her hips xrayed while they are xraying her knee

Classic ACL injury scenerio.
Surgery is still a fix - but sometimes more problems arise. But more likely is ACL tear than hip issue.

It's hard on all dog breeds to jump but some seem better at it than GSDs...if she's okay and just sprained herself a bit, definitely try to keep her from leaping up in the air.
Another member lost on of their dogs when he leaped really high and landed badly and injured himself internally upon landing

|PatchonGSD||If she has never had any issues before this particular incident she probably hurt herself on the landing. You probably need to take her to the vet if she is still in pain in case she has torn something.|

|llombardo||Maybe she just hurt herself on the landing?|
