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

If you love this dog in all other ways and you don't think you'll find another just as good without hip dysplasia, I'd still find an orthopedic vet to evaluate. But I know that in some cases these types of joint problems can worsen with age. So if I were in your shoes, I'd either keep looking or get the dog checked out by my own choice of vets and it would be a reputable orthopedic specialist.

Best wishes for a good outcome.
