I just kind of fell on this thread. Very interesting discussion here re: HD. I have reas many of these links already but not the Dr. Wakeman link. I need to read that. Thanks for posting it.
As for the original ? Would I breed my dogs? NO.
Kayos has bilateral HD. Yes she was fed and exercised appropriately as pup. She is almost 10 now and we had one hip replaced almost 5 years ago.
Havoc is oversize by 1 inch and has had allergies since puppyhood. Love his drive, work ethic and socialbility tho.
Lydi, still a pup but timid.
None are breed worthy.
