Old Boston Bulldog

December 15th, 2008, 05:00 PM
I am looking at adopting a 7 month old puppy and one has specifically caught my attention. Unfortunately, the one I was looking at has a slight deformity in that its vagina and its anus are closely spaced (about 1 cm apart). The dog is fine otherwise and does not seem to be suffering from any problems from this deformity. I am planning on spaying the dog anyhow so there is no question of breeding.

I am concerned that if I pick up this puppy, that its deformity may actually result in long term complications which may hurt us emotionally (the kids especially) as well as financially. Does any one have experience with this type of deformity? Is it common? Is it something I can and should ignore because it is not an issue?

I would appreciate any advice.
