    I know that there are no guarantees on any dogs’ long term health, but I am thinking of adopting a dog that has had a fractured pelvis, which has left her pelvis not aligned correctly and when she runs she has a funny gait. Does this increase the likelihood of problems later? It will be a companion dog/family dog. Opinions welcome

    I'd say her chances of being a normal family dog are fairly high.

    I would also have a different vet look at her and take x-rays just to make sure the original diagnosis/opinion is correct and that nothing can be done to fix her.
