All of our adult breeding dogs male and female have been fully DNA health tested and the results can be seen below.
We have three miniature poodle stud dogs Ziggy, Uncle Fester and Pepe. You will see that these are not your classic show ring bred, pom pom cut, 'cotton wool' coated poodles with thin faces and spindly legs. They are modern stocky, short muzzled, off-road poodles with loosely crimped coats perfect for breeding cockapoo's. Our boys are either DNA tested for prcd-PRA eye disease with normal/clear result, or 'clear by parentage. As they don't carry the defective gene it will not be possible for their puppies to go blind from the disease. Although Miniature are not likely to carry Familial Neuropathy (FN) we have DNA tested Ziggy, Uncle Fester and Pepe and they have normal/clear results. This allows us to state that any puppies from bitches who are also DNA clear for prcd-PRA and FN are clear by parentage.
Our stud dogs also have been Hip Scored, to give these numbers some meaning the worst hip score possible would be a total of 106 and a perfect one 0, So our boys have got great results, are on or below the average mean hip score of 12 for Miniature Poodles, which is ideal.
