My current GSD has been through a "TTA" ACL surgery on each leg. The last one last April. Based on how much time had passed after the surgery, I noted as much as 6-8 months before the stride and gait were more or less back to normal. Because of significant atrophy, this last one was in the 8 month range. I recall a more "side-ways" walk for some time. Now it is back to more or less normal, pretty straight.
Hope that helps. It's quite an experience, isn't it?
