Would breeding up to a good or excellent as long as the fair has good or excellent behind the pedigree be a good thing? I'm asking because the information I read on OFA says that it's fine but I had a breeder tell me not to get the puppy that shall not be named because his dam was OFA fair on her hips. I did it anyway because when I researched the pedigree there was nothing but good and excellent in her lineage except for one Dassin dog that was fair. On the sire's side he was good and everything behind him for 3 generations was also good or excellent. I thought that was acceptable. Is it not? Now I'm reading on here that some people are coming down on breeders that have used dogs with fair hips. Is that because it's a prelim hip result?
