|2.5 year old female|
The first one I was standing at an angle so it looks crooked.

|You're welcome. What did your vet say?|
by VickOH on 21 March 2012 - 23:43
The Vet said "fair" He did however commend me for keeping her good and lean. She's 23.5 inches tall and 65 pounds.

Yeah, probably fair, the sockets could be deeper, but the rims show no signs of wear, the heads are nice and round and the necks well defined. A fair is not a concern IMO. Plenty of Sch dogs have fair rated hips. In my own experience, often the only difference between fair and good is the positioning and the quality of the film and the mood of the readers LOL. She will do great!! Have fun and enjoy her.

|That sounds good. I'll be less worried now when she jumps three feet in the air. LOL!|

|Sockets COULD be deeper but overall I think they look good, probably fair-good. Best of luck Nan|
