i purchased a german shepherd dog from a breeder in new york, after a short period of time my wife insisted that the dogs gait was not right.i called the breeder and he said that was normal in gsd’s.after about a month it did not get bettter but worse.my vet then took x rays upon seeing them he diagnosed both hips as sublixated (sic)and severe canine hip dysplasia.i showed the breeder the report and x ray. the next day i called him and he said that when i bought the dog it was alright and the abnormality was caused by an injury and he was not obligated to replace the dog.i had more x rays done and read by a orthopedic vet surgeon and he concurred with my vet. this dog did not have an injury of this severity that i am aware of .the contract states that the breeder will replace the dog in the event of hip dysplasia my family is devastated by this .they grew to love this dog and i am not able to afford the physical intervention costs.what recourse do i have. please any advice will be greatly appreciated..thank you in advance…..lcjay
