Bred for health & temperament

Well done Mila and Wilf on a fantastic litter of 10 puppies, 9 GIRLS and just 1 BOY who we hope will be staying with us here to work at stud along side Gus.

We have no plans for another litter until Spring 2020.

Today we had the DNA results back for 8 of our dogs, which were tested for AMS  - Acral Mutilation Syndrome -  which is a sensory neuropathy which causes an insensitivity to pain in the dogs feet.  This insensitivity can lead to severe self mutilation of their limbs.  This test can be used by breeders to ensure that puppies bred do not suffer from this condition.

We are pleased to announce that all 8 of our dogs tested CLEAR, so will never get it nor their offspring suffer with it.

Today one of our girls went to stud, hopefully in 9 weeks we'll be hearing the pitter patter of tiny pads.  

If you are waiting on news on any up and coming litters, please check back in around 4 weeks for updates

Doris's AON DNA test results are back from the US and we are pleased to say she is clear of this dreadful disease, which means all of our dogs are PRA, FN, AON and FN clear so will never pass on any of these diseases to their offspring.

Sad News today 26/05/2020 - this morning our vet confirmed that our lovable rogue Dylan has anal gland cancer, so tomorrow he faces a GA to have a biopsy taken to see which type of cancer it is, we're praying it's a slow growing cancer and it can be treated, if not, then it will be palliative care until when we know it's time to say goodbye.  He is such a lovely boy and my heart is breaking just thinking about what is happening.
