Rebecca, Irena Farm Posted January 4, 2009 Report Share Posted January 4, 2009 I just picked up a rescue puppy, 12 wk female, with a deformed rear end. You can see how bad the deformity without even her moving - her leg is atrophied and the pelvic/femoral structure on that side seems, well, minimal. I don't know how else to describe it. I hate it when I get this sort of thing and the vet is closed. I've been, of course, scouring the internet and can't find mention of CHD so bad that there's like, no upper leg? Could this be something else, like another kind of birth defect, an injury, something? I know it's impossible to diagnose over the internet but I'm just wondering about other possibilities. Eve is a purebred from one of our favorite breeders in TN. Thankfully, she's got a wonderful personality and even works my ducks. And oh, she's a lovely candy color - sable merle. Too bad her idiot breeder didn't think a dog actually being able to walk was as important as pretty colors. She was dumped in a shelter with littermates and several other litters also in suspicious pretty colors or white factored. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
