As puppy season rolls around, just a reminder that if you are paying $800 (or any amount for that matter) for a puppy, the sire and dam of the pup should have ALL of the appropriate clearances....not just hips.
Buyer should request to see copies of the following clearances and not just hear from the breeder "Yes, they have all of their clearances." The clearances should be from the breeding pair and not the grandsires/grand dams.
OFA Hips and Elbows
CNM- Centronuclear Myopathy
EIC- Exercise Induced Collapse
The genes for the last 2 genetic conditions are very much alive and well in several labs I know.
Also nice to see RD and Cardio, but I'm not calling those necessary if the sire and dam are working dogs.
