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

Was the testing done through OFA or Pennhip? I've heard that Pennhip is much more sensitive. Still, I probably would not take on a dog with a hip dysplasia diagnosis. My heart dog had to be put to sleep due to this and the vet bills can be extremely costly even if you are able to treat it.
