  1. Jumping with Hip Dysplasia

    Dog Health
    Hello, my sister has a young German Shepherd (a year and a few months) and the vet said that he has hip dysplasia.

    New Additions
    Well, my name is Will, and I adopted a "Shepherd Mix" named Alpha when he was 9 weeks old. Although we knew he was Shepherd (thinking Dutch) we decided to get him a DNA test to be sure, and I'm glad I have a good sense of humor, because if not- I would be pretty mad right now. Apparently...

    Dog Health
    Hello, We have a 4 1/2 year old lab mix named Ruca. I recently noticed a bump on the "bridge" of her nose.
