Dog Breeder / bad hips
I bought a black lab born on 3/10/10 to George and Katie (dogs). Was told no hip problems. My 9 month old dog has VERY BAD hip dysplasia, which will require hip replacements in a few years. I was told by breeder, Debbie, that there is nothing she can do about this. She states that she has never had a complaint about hip problems in the past from any of the pups she has sold. Vets recommend to STOP breeding if an offspring has hip dysplasia, a very painful and expensive problem. My 9 month old black lab walks like an 11 year old with bad arthritis. Don't buy from them.
