Steve's neutered and I still sent his xrays to OFA. They're just prelims as they were just for my knowledge, but I wanted that information to be available for people looking at his lines.

I also wish that PennHip had a searchable online database.
+2 to all the above. Heck even Kim & Webby have OFA numbers.

I was about to fly out and check out a bitch we wanted- OFA Good. Except I could not find her online. Owner could not produce a certificate. I must assume something is being hidden and walk away.
