Health, Testing, and Registration

The sire and dam were hand-selected for their structure, soundness, and temperament.

Our dogs are health-tested for hip dysplasia before being used for breeding. They are tested either through the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals or though Penn-hip. We also test through Optigen for PRA-prcd, a genetic disorder that can lead to blindness.

The sire and dam are registered AKC, UKC registered. All health tests have been performed on hips, eyes and PRA-prcd testing. Both dogs had their eyes tested through the CERF program. CERF was established in conjunction with cooperating, board certified, veterinary ophthalmologists, as a means to accomplish the goal of elimination of heritable eye disease in all purebred dogs by forming a centralized, national registry.
