New photo's have been added of the puppies from our GOT litter.
Took samples from the dogs to send to Antagene in France to DNA test for a variety of diseases, Degenerative Mylopethy, Canine Multi-focal Retinopathy & Hereditary Foot-pad Hyperkeratosis. Results came back and all our dogs are clear for DM & CMR1 genes. IIah is a carrier of HFH-B but everyone else is Clear for the gene.
Hip & Elbow results came back for Chief (T. Duke Of Hazard), hip total 25, elbows left 2 right 1. So far the hip average for D Litter is 15.14, just below the breed average of 16.81. Looks like the breed is making progress in reducing HD as we have lowered the breed average score from 18.45 in 2009 to 16.81 in 2017.
