Information on Australian Shepherd health and genetics:
The Canadian Kennel Club
Did you know that only 2% of Toy sized Australian Shepherds
tested showed evidence of hip dysplasia?
...And only 8.7% of Miniature sized Australian Shepherds?
Did you know that a Vet looking at an x-ray cannot distinguish between
poor hips caused by injury and poor hips caused by genetics?
Did you know that to accurately predict if a litter will be of risk
to hip dysplasia is to test not only the parents

Only testing the parents give us an unclear look at the risks.
Contact me for my views on hip testing and their results.
