Here is Blitz. My 4 1/2 month old German Shepherd. What a stud
Friday, August 8, 2008
My workout partner has returned home. For those who didn't know he has a birth defect of a malformed right radius. It is convex when it should be concave to match up with the wrist bone. This causes a very loose joint which easily slips out of place like this x-ray shows causing, swelling, pain, and eventually destruction of the cartilage in the joint. He has been back at the breeder's house for the past 6 weeks but has been doing real well so we decided to keep him and see how things go. He's a trooper and doesn't whine or complain about his pain. I'm glad to have him back.
