All dogs have a pedigree. A pedigree is simply a listing of the dogs in a family tree.
What do the dogs in the pedigree look like? Do they have conformation titles before their names or performance titles after their names?
What testing has been done on the breeding parents of the litter you are considering? Is there testing behind the breeding parents? You can verify this on www.offa.org.
Personally, if I were in the market for a puppy, I would want to get on a waitlist long before a litter was ever bred. I think the apple never falls far from the tree so I like to see how a dam behaves at home and then out in public. Can the owner take her bitch to the park and throw the ball for her? Can she take her out in a public setting and let strangers pet her. Is the bitch good with strange dogs?
Not old enough to test..... not old enough to breed.I was told that the parents are not old enough for OFA and this is the first litter.
That's right, I don't know how you got that. And COI = 21.7%[10G,8F,545U,188C] looks right to me.
But that's the thing.... the breeder who bred these dogs no doubt is the type where if you pay the extra fee, you get full registration.This is a problem in the making Whomever sold this person FULL registration dogs was not very good at informing this person of what is right and what is wrong.... Shame on them ...
She is breeding untested dogs and producing high COI which in itself is a problem She has three breeding bitches right now with three litters on the ground and none of the parent is old enough. Is this a valid question ?Can you elaborate?. Please feel free through in some scientific reason
yes it is. CBRAND raised the same point . Ok my search for dark red male will continue.She is breeding untested dogs and producing high COI which in itself is a problem She has three breeding bitches right now with three litters on the ground and none of the parent is old enough.
