Sorry you are going through this. Would be interesting to know how the other puppies were doing. They were 10 in total apparently. I insisted I saw the parent's. I normally make a few visits but rightly or wrong given the current circumstances, I just made the one trip. Its not something you can really force on people really. They dad was beautiful and really friendly. Wouldn't leave me alone and was kissing us and soppy as you like. The mother also great looking but obviously, a bit more reserved as he had to bring her out the house away from her pups and it was her 1st time out since giving birth. I spent a good couple of hours with them. Mum was around 55kg and sire around 58kg. Without boring you I checked out the basic aesthetics, like eye colour, mouth pigment, how they looked physically, acted in certain scenarios, patterns, hind quarters etc and all checked out. Also checked the hips and elbow scores of the parents and back further in the lines, jlpp etc. If I'm honest I did get a vibe that we could have seen more of the kennels etc which normally I would press to see, but covid has changed alit of things. Especially in November when it was in its height over here. I can only give the same advice as bbd and keep doing what your doing with the medical treatment hopefully most of this she will grow out of fingers crossed but it must be hard and stressful for you all
Thank you for this, maybe a female is more challenging? But she is definitely my girl and I will do everything that’s needed , she is well socialised and just started attending Obedience classes x

Assume you haven't been able to make contact with any of the other owners of the siblings? Must be very hard. You done very well to find me
I made contact with one through a Rottweiler site on fb, sadly he died within the first week of being home .

Have you notified the breeder yet?? Are you sure it's shoulder dysplasia?? I think elbow dysplasia is more common...and if it's that, it's serious. Did you not get pictures of your pup before you picked her up? You should have been made aware of the white. Did the sire and dam have hip and elbow ratings???

Vet thinks shoulder, waiting to see specialist on 5th July. Breeder saw no signs of white on pup. . Now in contact with a sibling through here , the owner checked sure & dam hip & elbow ratings . I saw photos and a video. Looking back at photos , first sign of white was 2 weeks after bringing home

Sire and dam were hip and elbow scored and Ralph's 5 generation pedigree is on this site somewhere as I posted it. He they have a very good pedigree. All dogs on both sides going back 5generations were ADRK registered and had health checks, working titles, multi v rated dogs. International and World champions all being BH ZTP multi V etc. ADRK are obviously very strict on who qualifys to be registered. All dogs need to pass strict health tests, conformation, working ability, structure and have titles. It amazes me this has happened, just goes to show. The sire and dam were from adrk litters imported from Germany. If anyone wants to double check the lines I'll try and repost. (I know it doesn't change anything) but someone might see something that could relate to whats happened. But as far as I could see it looked good
