I'm new here and was wondering if you could help me please...
Our 10 year old Blue Dane, Alfie, died 2 months ago aged 10. My husband and I can't cope without him so we're getting another.
We've fallen in love with this little girl: http://www.champdogs...uk/litter/28334 who is KC registered etc, but her mum's hip score is 14 and her Dad's is 19. Are we asking for trouble here? I'd hate to have a puppy and see it in pain with its hips in a few years time. We're avid walkers, walking around 5 miles a day and our Dane would go with us.
What do you think, are thee scores too high? I know the mean should be lower than 13, but *sigh* will it really mean she'll have bad hips when she's older?
Thanks so much for any advice you can offer.
