|Hi everyone, I have a question about hip dysplasia and Aussies. We rescued Sheila from our local Humane Society. From what the shelter knows, she is eight months old and is a pure bred Aussie, but her owners could not find a home for her and a sibling, so they surrendered them to the shelter to find their forever homes. My question is: Are Aussies prone to hip dysplasia? How old are they when they are diagnosed? Are there things I can do to prevent it? I was reading in one thread that you should not agility train until after a year. I have no intention of agility training, but sure do enjoy playing fetch and chasing her/her chasing me around the yard. Is this too much for her? We love her so much, we don't want to hurt her.
