German Shepherds are good dogs though when properly bred and raised. See my avatar :) [/quote] Dog breeder has little to do with it. All pure breed German Shepards have that genetic flaw. [/quote] Are you saying all German Shepherds have hip problems? That's incorrect, however it can pop up even in dogs that have had parents, grandparents, etc. who have been health tested. There's no way to produce a flawless dog, just like there is not a flawless human. Some lines are more likely to have good hips than others, however. [/quote] Most all large breeds can get hip issues key is for them not to get overwieght in old age. [/quote]
I have a friend who breeds them and she seems happy with them as a pet. My only question is about their hips, I always hear stories about them getting some sort of hip problems (I forget what they call it)I also plan on taking it to training, so it will be well behaved in public.
