I have had a few Shepherds over the last 50 years and they all have suffered with dysplasia to some degree, but I have never had a Shepherd that lays like this one. My vet calls it laying "frog legged" and is very optimistic that his hips are probably good. I am considering having them x-rayed to verify, but would like to get some additional opinions. BTW, he just turned 6 years old in September. Sorry for the picture being sideways, but that's the way it uploaded.
