Molly joined us in 2019 from a friend who needed to downsize and wanted a good home for her. She is a highly intelligent very loyal lady.
She was born in 2016 and since she arrived has been thoroughly health tested – far in excess on the Kennel Club Assured Breeder guidelines. Colourwise she is black carrying the yellow gene and therefore dependent on the stud used can produce yellow and black pups according to the sire’s genetic makeup.
She has the following health results:
Elbow Score : 0 – 25th April 2019
Eye Examination : Unaffected – 12 March 2021
Additionally she is DNA tested as follows:
|Centronuclear Myopathy (CNM)||Clear|
|Exercise-induced collapse (EIC)||Clear|
|Nasal parakeratosis (HNPK)||Clear|
|Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) progressive rodcone degeneration (PRCD)||Clear|
|Skeletal dysplasia (SD2)||Carrier|
|Congenital myasthenic syndrom||Clear|
|Congenital Myasthenic syndrome||Clear|
|Cystinuria Type I-A||Clear|
|Degenerative myelopathy (DM)||Clear|
|Labrador obesity susceptibility POMC||Clear|
|Macular corneal dystrophy||Clear|
|Malignant hyperthermia (MH)||Clear|
|Myotubular myopathy 1 MTM1||Clear|
|Oculoskeletal dysplasia 1 (RD-OSD)||Clear|
|Progressive Retinal Atrophy (CORD1 / rcd4)||Clear|
|Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA-GR2)||Clear|
|Pyruvate kinase deficiency||Clear|
Her clear statuses means her offspring cannot be affected with these genetic disorders. However as a SD2 carrier we must ensure any stud dog we mate her with in the future is CLEAR. By doing this we can ensure any future offspring are not affected with the condition. As a carrier she does not show any clinical symptoms of the condition either. This demonstrates why testing is important.
The tests we have undertaken exceed the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme requirements and recommendations. Currently there are five conditions recorded by The Kennel Club. You can validate those results via their web site by clicking here.
