Mild hip dysplagia

Would you adopt a 2 year old from a reputable breeder who’s X-ray shows mild dysphasia in one hip? Diagnosed when testing for future breeding so spaying and placing instead. Just wondering what would be in store for me if I take her... Thanks

Mild hip dysphasia in my understanding may not even show any symptoms but simply rules out a dog for breeding purposes. In other words if not for the x-ray you would never know the dog had it - as was the case with a stunning German Shepherd boy we had when I was a kid. Ringo was a gorgeous dog who lived a long healthy life and died peacefully at 14 in his sleep. His hips in the least two years of his life showed the usual slight stiffness but not anymore than any other dog we had.
