Natural eared male puppy. Mom stepped on him at birth and one hip socket has a growth plate injury. It doesn't seem to bother him - he compensates well, however if he doesn't grow out of it he will always limp. Owner does not want a puppy that isn't show quality. Others from the litter were $1500. Mom and dad are both big (dad was imported) so this will not be a small dog. Very, very good temperment. Must find a home asap or breeder wants him euthanized. He will not come with papers as breeder wants him neutered. Current on vacs and wormings.
Please call me ASAP about this quality puppy. I am borrowing a cage to foster him as I am so full, but this is a really nice purebred dog that just needs to go now.
I might be very interested if I can figure out a way to get him to Virginia! My husband and I just had to put down our Rottweiler in June due to osteo-sarcoma in her shoulder and we have been talking about getting a Doberman next as my husband has owned them in the past. Has a vet given any guess on what future problems the injury might cause him?
He has been x rayed twice. We don't think that there's anything to fix. If it becomes arthritic later on, an FHO is always an option (Femoral Head Ostectomy - where they remove the "ball" of the femur and let a false joint form, eliminating bone on bone contact), but right now he may just need to grow up and may never need any further treatment.
This might help
HopeandJoy - so sorry about your Rottie, unfortunately such an ugly cancer.
