Hello everyone! I am a new poster to this forum although I have been an avid reader, and have done my share of research through this forum lol. I currently have a blue brindle pitbull about 4 months named W.S. Overall he is a very submissive if not timid dog. He is very well behaved, although he has his own situations that we are both working on. I am writing this as a concern to his hips. I've noticed for a while that when he walks he sways his hips back and forth. I overlooked it as being a puppy and being uncoordinated, but lately like within the last 2 weeks I've been observing it more and reading up about Canine Hip Dysplasia and have been getting very worried...I've looked up the symptoms and idk if its because I am over analyzing it but he seems to have a lot of the symptoms but at the same time it might be because I am over thinking it(hopefully I am! lol) Mainly his hips sway when he walks, he sits on his hips occasionally, and he has is kind of reluctant to walk(he is starting to walk more now except when it is hot lol.) He also climbs onto furniture versus jumping on it. Is it because he is still a puppy and has yet to learn how to jump? I would appreciate it if you guys gave me some feed back and opinions I've been stressing myself out! The more he plays the more agile he seems to get, i saw him duck n dodge and jump over a smaller dog a few days ago, when he trots I don't notice his hips sway as much. I contacted the person I bought him from and they told me his dad use to walk the same way but he grew out of it and my friend also said because he is taller he walks wobbly(hopefully this is true and he doesnt have CHD!) ALso, a symptom of CHD is his hind legs getting atrophy but whenever he walks I can see some puppy muscle lol. ANyways, TY for your time and any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
