Please note that we share health information on our website, register all
breed-required genetic health test results with the Orthopedic Foundation For Animals Database (www.offa.org
) and require health tests on all puppies, not just show prospects. We believe that just doing health testing on show prospect puppies does not give an accurate picture of the health of the dogs we are breeding. It's a fact that ALL dog breeders have health issues in their puppies. As George A. Pagett, DVM, and past MSU Professor of Pathology, says: 'All dogs carry four or five defective genes' - genes for four or five defects. It is so important to the future health of our breed to share health data of whole litters. Milestone shares this health information in the spirit of bettering the health of this breed we love.
