Health and Temperament Testing
The value of genetic health testing is so that over time, we as responsible breeders can help eradicate inherent genetic diseases specific to our breed. We do this by electing NOT to reproduce a mastiff that has been tested and proven to carry a genetic disease, or that did not meet the minimum requirements of a genetic test, as set forth by the OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals), other genetic testing agencies, and/or the criterion of a responsible breeding program.
Many careful decisions must be made with regards to any breeding, and health testing provides us with such an important tool to make these important decisions. As a responsible breeder, no dog or bitch will be used in my breeding program unless he/she has been health tested and I have thoroughly researched all health testing in their entire pedigree.
ALL DOGS USED IN OUR BREEDING PROGRAM HAVE BEEN TESTED AND PROVEN CLEAR OF CYSTINURIA.
