1 year old hip prelims what do you think?

I know the positioning is not correct and it doesn't look like the dog was sedated. The right hip appears to be a little shallow already and I'm not sure but it appears to be a crack on the outside of the right hip. If anyone can tell me what you think about these hips I would appreciate it very much. Thanks!

selzer Just tell them that you neutered him. This breeder won't want him back then.

wolfstraum the second hip photo was better - head on one side not great, but has coverage so not all that bad....if the dog is going sound, and not in discomfort - not such a big deal, put him on supplemetns and let him live the next few years happily

The company wants him back? So they can resell this 7 year old?? tell them to go pound salt.....give them a boarding bill for the 4 years the other people had him for twice what they paid for him! greedy....

Magwart Wouldn't a reputable trainer or breeder just want to check you out, to make sure the dog is in good hands? I don't get the fuss--could they really sell an older dog with HD? I'd think they would be satisfied knowing the dog is safe with an experienced handler, will be neutered due to the HD, will receive whatever medical care he ends up needing, and will receive an excellent retirement home where he will be loved and worked as much as his body will safely allow. That sounds to me like the best possible happy ending for a dog like this!

VanBuren shepherds He is not neutered and yes I'm going to have him neutered.

JakodaCD OA I agree with the above.. I'd tell the trainer contact the people YOU got him from, their beef is with them, not you.

I forget, is he neutered? If not, I'd tell the trainer your going to neuter him, (whether you are or not) bet they won't want him back or atleast they couldn't use him for reproducing ..

Their reply was... me having him was a breech of contract between them and the owners.
Obviously they had an agreement that the trainer would receive first rights to obtain the dog if they didn't keep him. This occurs all the time!
Completely understandable but now I'm stuck in the middle and waiting to see what they want to do.
He's a great boy, but there is no history on him, no bloodlines, no papers, 4 years down the toilet where he wasn't worked with and possible HD.
I want to help him out but my hands might be tied with this one. I'm sure the trainer could work with him and sell him again and that's why they want him. If they show me the contract I won't stop them from taking him. If they can't show me the contract then we have a problem. They are in another state and I told them if they want him they would have to come to where I'm at and pick him up.
I also asked them to give me the opportunity to work with him. And they didn't have to re home him. We shall see!

Actually, your hands are not tied. You did not breech contract, the previous owners did.

The original trainer has to fight them. He is your dog now. If the trainer takes them to court, then the judgment would most likely be in his favour. But they would generally just have to pay him a fee. He cannot come and take the dog he does not own the dog. They did and now you do.

dawnandjr If you can, when he is under for neutering, can you get x-rays done again? Just to see where he is with that break, to see how it healed. And if there is any joint wear going on. Like you said, so you know what your getting into.

I agree
