  1. 9 yr old Sherman cannot walk

    Golden Retriever Senior Center
    My Sherman has been in and out of the vet for the past 2 years with inconclusive results.

    Hi everyone, I have a 2 year old golden (Bella) and a 2 year old choc lab (Charles). The golden is having some difficulty with her hind legs. I am very concerned to see this at such a young age. Yesterday I took the dogs to the park and played fetch for about a half hour. I didn't notice...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hi We recently bought a pure-bred golden retriever puppy, Eric, and tomorrow he will be 10 weeks old. When he's out at the back yard of the house I have noticed that his bum might wiggle a bit, and bunny-hops when he's running. When I googled this online, I was getting Hip Dysplasia. I...
