Sophie hopefully (nature willing) will be our next mom! She was born April 2016 to Lily and Zar (see below) and although she was not shown on the Show Circuit, (as we couldn't seem to maintain that coat out in the forest) she has been assessed by CKC conformation judges and is very sound in conformation and beauty. Her temperament is wonderful and she gets along well with people and other animals and likes cats.. During the following screening tests, she was patient and cooperative and did not struggle during radiography or the eye exam. She just had her first heat in late May - early June, so it is likely we will breed her in fall 2018.
She has been cleared eyes for inherited eye diseases with CERF and Dr. Brian Skorobahach, Ophthalmologist. The Orthopedic Foundation for Animals ((OFA) has cleared her for inherited Thyroid Disease, and Sebaceous Adenitis (an inherited skin disease often seen in poodles). She has been certified clear for Hip Dysplasia. We have submitted DNA to VetGen to check markers for Neonatal Encephalopathy ( an inherited neurological disease seen in poodles and a few other breeds), Von Willebrands Disease ( an inherited clotting disorder seen in many breeds), and the coat colour that she carries..
