All of our breeding dogs are fully health tested to PWDCA requirements before they are bred. This includes OFA Hips/Elbows, CAER eyes, and genetic testing for Juvenile Dilated Cardiomyopathy (JDCM), Gangliosidosis (GM-1), Progressive Retinal Atrophy (prcd-PRA), Early-Onset PRA (EOPRA), Improper Coat (IC) and Micropthalmia. All of these results are publicly available on OFA.org and we are always happy to share health information about our breeding dogs.
We encourage you to request health testing information from any breeder you are engaging with, and not to accept “vet checked” as an answer. As with any breed, there are genetic diseases carried within PWDs that are entirely avoidable through health testing. Save your family potential heartache by ensuring you are getting a puppy from health tested parents.
