Thinschmidt's German Shepherds
Our two puppies have BILATERAL ELBOW DYSPLASIA and one also has BILATERAL HIP DYSPLASIAWE CANNOT RECOMMEND THINSCHMIDT GERMAN SHEPHERDS due to our experience with our puppies' health problems.Last year we obtained two puppies from different litters GONZO & SAYLA (May 2012) and GONZO & ANNA (Sept 2012). BOTH were diagnosed with ELBOW DYSPLASIA and ONE also with HIP DYSPLASIA. Once you have a dog in the family you aren't going to return it to the breeder. Our puppies' conditions were identified and diagnosed by extremely well-qualified Board Certified Veterinary Surgeon and independent Board Certified Radiologist before one year of age. So far we have paid out many thousands in veterinary bills related to the elbow dysplasia diagnoses and necessary surgery, and then the youngest puppy was ALSO DIAGNOSED WITH HIP DYSPLASIA.I wish I had realized that German SV rating of FAST NORMAL is BORDERLINE in the american standards rating of the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals OFA. I would NEVER select parents that have that rating ever again. The ratings can be found on the website: http://www.offa.org/hd_g. I've learned to check the ratings of the breeding males and females you are considering from any breeder.Our puppies face a lifetime of arthritis. It is a very sad experience. We love our puppies but wish they were healthy.IF YOU ARE ANOTHER THINSCHMIDT PUPPY OWNER WITH DYSPLASIA PLEASE E-MAIL ME AT kasmha@aol.com I AM IN CONTACT WITH THREE OTHER OWNERS. HOW MANY ARE WE AND HOW LONG HAS THIS BEEN GOING ON?
