We don't need the knees? They have nothing to do with the hip joint?
I guess for some silly reason, all along I've been thinking the same bone connects to both the hip and the knee. Boy, I must be really dumb.
And the hip certifying bodies must be equally dumb, to have such strict protocol for how the knees must be positioned in a hip xray.
We cannot tell nearly enough without the knees, as has been mentioned previously. The knees are where we can tell with certainty if they are rotated inward to the proper degree to show an accurate portrayal of the hips. Just looking at the hips, I'd say they're most likely not perfectly rotated. The pelvis is ever so slightly tilted, as you can see the two sides are not quite symmetrical. Positioning isn't bad, but without seeing the whole film, I have to be picky......
They look younger, to me. Like not finished growing, kind of young/subluxated. Is the dog near her heat cycle? Or is it a very large, lanky-type dog that may need more time to mature?
Personally, I think it's a bit early to say you would or wouldn't breed this dog, as one poster said. The xray isn't even complete, and I have seen far worse hips improve with age than these hips. I don't think they're bad. If you're looking to buy a dog, these wouldn't stop me from buying the dog.
