Message Subject I'm thinking of getting a german shepherd

They can have hip dysplasia, among other health issues, which is why it's important to go to a good breeder who knows what they are doing. German Shepherds are good dogs though when properly bred and raised. See my avatar :)

Dog breeder has little to do with it.
All pure breed German Shepards have that genetic flaw.
 Quoting: Burt Gummer

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.
 Quoting: Laura Bow

Most all large breeds can get hip issues key is for them not to get overwieght in old age.
