Hip Dysplasia in a 10 month old?

Hello Everyone, its been years since I posted.
I might be adopting a 10 month old GSD who has been living in a crate most of his life, he never even got a name....

He's limping in the rear so I took him to the vet for an evaluation.
I know it's hard to make a determination about dysplasia, but the two vets who reviewed the xray agreed...
I just want another opinion, please.

I don't have any confidence in my ability to evaluate Xrays but these do look SUPER crooked. I've had 3 dogs Xrayed for OFA's and the shots were very straight and symmetrical. Unlike these Xrays. I'd get better Xrays done and consider having them evaluated by an orthopedic vet.

I've had 3 different vets do OFA rads and all 3 correctly predicted what the dog would be rated (2 goods and an excellent).

These were done at a local clinic and the dog was not sedated, but I was hoping that I could get some advice on how bad the left hip is.
I was to do hiking and agility and all kinds of outdoor activities, but I'm concerned that he won't be able to do it.

Can you download the photo from the computer and post it directly here? I can tell very little from those photos. a photo of a photo just doesn't show enough detail.

Post the photo to show the WHOLE x-ray, including knees. See my previous post here of my dog's x-ray:

https://www.germanshepherds.com/foru...go-here-2.html

And yeah, the positioning sucks. In the second photo, the left hip looks to be almost out of the socket. In the first photo, it looks okay...so I don't know what to think!

What Thecowboy’sgirl said. The second pic doesn’t even resemble the first. I would get another set of X-rays under sedation (unless there is medical reasons not to) from an Ortho specialist or a vet who is well versed in positioning. Was it his left hind leg that he was limping on?

They may have been having a hard time keeping your pup perfectly still while trying to adjust for correct position.

Edit to add I’m just another member not in the field.

Thank you for your replies.
Part of the issue is that I don't own this dog, yet. He's kind of a rescue from a not so good situation.
I'm not financially able to spend
$$$ on getting xray done by a specialist....
That's why I'm reaching out to you....

IMO the left hip is dysplastic. Even with terrible positioning a good hip should not be able to be pulled out of the socket that way.

Just my opinion -

The hips don't look great. Especially the left one. This is not a dog I would get with hiking and agility in mind. In addition, if you can't afford the $500 for xrays then you can't afford a dog that has dysplastic issues. You should probably pass on him. ;(
