Just keep an eye on your puppy as he grows for any other signs of joint trouble. Bunny-hopping can be a sign of hip dysplasia, but I wouldn't panic yet. When he is closer to a year old you can get preliminary x-rays (if you decide to neuter him, they can do the films while he's under anesthesia so you don't have to put him through anesthesia twice). You can do a search on this forum for threads about signs of hip dysplasia for other things to keep an eye out for.

I have a dog with HD, and she's had a hip replacement. By no means is HD a death sentence. Rosa is doing great six months post-op.
