This is more of a plea for help than a classified so....... This pup is 9 mos old and is going to be a hoss. Already approximately 65 lbs. CC, FF, marking doubles, and basic blind work. Approx 4 months with a well known pro trainer. Excellent Ped. She is a fire breather but very calm and quiet on a stand in the timber. Took her hunting last weekend and she was spotting the birds with no help. Here's the catch. She can't be bred. She has severe dysplasia in her left hip. She grew very large very quickly and was training very hard during this time. Her ped is solid with hip certs so more than likely this was the result of rapid growth or trauma early on. She will have to have either TPO surgery ($2000) prior to 1 year of age or THR ($3500) surgery later but should be at least %95 after that. When you combine the money you would have spent on purchasing the pup, food, shots, training etc., it will come out the same. You just won't have the puppy issues to deal with. If you get the surgery soon, she would be good to go next season. She is a sweet pup and a good house dog. I understand that finding someone to do all of this is unlikely but I have to give her a shot. I can't keep this dog. I'm the breeder and purchased the pup back. All I want is for the pup to have the opportunity to do what it was bred for and to be happy. Please PM if you are interested. If you aren't but you know someone who might be, please pass the info along.
