I hope that Tuck is still doing well. We are facing exactly the same situation with our 4 month old Malinois, Mishka. She had her leg amputated at two months before we adopted her and we now have the bad news that she has terrible hip dysplasia and her remaining joint is completely out of the socket, making movement very painful and awkward. We would have to wait another 5 months for her to grow sufficiently to have a hip replacement and even then the outcome is uncertain. Feeling so desperate for her and just wanted to hear how your journey continued after the replacement of Tuck's hip.
Thanks so much, Martin
