3 month old shepherd pup walks with a sway

My husband picked up a beautiful black 3 month old German shepherd puppy yesterday.
She is super sweet. But she has a sway to her when she walks. She doesn't bunny hop up stair or anything but she seems to lay down a lot ... I took a video of her walking...I'm so scared she has hip dysplasia. But I still have some hope that that's just the way she walks . Video of her walking link below

She looks like a normal puppy to my eye.

there is no sway .

muscles still need to develop.

the whole body needs to develop .

what I would be addressing is that dog not wanting to come to you.

At this age I wouldnt worry. HD isn't tested for until at least 1yr of age, there is still way too much bone and muscle growth to go. Just dont have her jumping from high surfaces or going down stairs.

Puppies can be kinda loose and wobbly at times. Yours looks fine. Pretty puppy.

Maybe it's all in my head lol! I watched a couple of videos of hip dysplasia. And they seemed to walk like her. But I'm thankful you didn't see it. Yes we are going to work on her coming to us. We just got her yesterday. It has taken her a bit to get used to us

Thanks for the advice I really appreciate it! I didn't think about the stairs and high surfaces.
