Breeder Of Merit web OES

Last Updated December 6, 2019

A word about health testing. At SnowDowne, we are leaders in health testing of Old English Sheepdogs. All of the dogs that we own that we are currently using for breeding undergo 10 health tests. These include Hips, Eyes, Hearing, Thyroid, Heart, Cerebellar Ataxia (CA), Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD), Multi Drug Resistance 1 (MDR1), Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) and Degenerative Myelopathy.

We are not God and can not promise that every OES will never have a health issue (no one can!), but we can stack the odds in our favor by doing all the health testing we do. Our goal is to breed healthy OES with family friendly temperaments, and proper OES conformation.

We Have Puppies !

Dea has a litter of 8 puppies at her house. They were born on November 5th. There are 6 girls and 2 boys.
 Dad is Ch SnowDowne Go For The Gusto and mom is Ch SnowDowne Bet Your Bottom Dollar.
 Both have 10 normal health tests.

* The puppies are too young to determine show or pet quality. Either Grant or Huck has been sold as a pet.   Dahlia has also been sold. One of the other girls has been sold as a show dog, but we are waiting to pick her out until they get older.

All of our puppies are microchipped, will have been wormed 3 times, and have a general exam including their first vaccination by our veterinarian Dr Cynthia Merrell Smith, DVM. Additionally, the puppies will have 5 DNA health tests and their hearing and eyes checked before they go to their new homes.

We have started getting the DNA results in. Charlotte is the first.
