Buying a Puppy
I am looking to buy a Puppy, I have contacting breeders that say we don't MRI but our lines have no signs of SM. I have avoided these on advice from thsi sites owner.
I have now foudn breeders saying :
Advert No 1
"Both parents are heart and eye tested by specialists, sire is mri scanned clear and so is the maternal grandmother. Sire is by CH Pascavale Enchanted and Dam is from Narayden lines."
Advert No 2
"Both parents have current CLEAR heart certificates, which can be seen and are BVA/KC eye tested.
Excellent 5 generation pedigree.Sire is a successful show/stud dog and has a Res CC and his JW. He has also been MRI scanned CLEAR for SM (his Sire is also scanned Clear). He has also been DNA tested CLEAR for both DE/CC (dry eye/curly coat syndrome) and EF (Episodic Falling)"
From what they are saying above do these seem good breeders and will teh puppy stand a good chance of being healthy ... SM and Heart condition free ??
