Default Good hips for a puppy mill quality dog

This is a shot of ramseys hips at 4 years of age. They were taken after he came up lame with a bit of crying when jumping on the bed. I was as surprised as my vet when the xrays were viewed. He was a puppy mill level shepherd who has very good hips.

My dog is from a puppy mill. She's OFA Good hips, and ED1 elbows. It does happen, but we certainly are not stacking the deck in our favor through such dogs.

I don't know how to read xrays, so I'll just say congrats. I take it your vet was pleased with the xrays. The right hip socket looks shallower than the left one to me. But I'm no radiologists!

I also was concerned about the rt. side, dont know if that was due to the positioning on the table however the vet thought for sure it was a hip issue prior to the xrays being taken. I took the CD to an ortho specialist later on who told be for this particular dog, His hips will not be an issue.
