Default Thank you!

Thank you everyone for your advice.

I contacted a couple of the references again and asked if they saw papers. Unfortunately, they hadn't and they didn't even know what OFA & CERF were. Do you only get them if you ask?

The breeder is continuing to look, and I told her to contact OFA & CERF for copies. She's also had the dad's hip x-rays done a few days ago and is sending them to OFA. CERF apparently is harder because the clinic only comes around once in awhile.

If the breeder can't get the papers, I may still get the pup. Of course, if I do, she'll be fixed. I would never intend to breed her. I will also have pet insurance, and make sure the contract helps me out as much as possible, whether its a full refund if the dog has any problems or split the vet bills etc.

I suppose there's always a chance of disease even if both parents were perfect.

That's a good outlook to have, Stellabella.

Do be careful about the pet insurance. You have to read every single bit of the policy and be sure to ask questions and get answers - in writing - before you sign. Too many people get signed up thinking they're covered for things and find out they aren't, or have trouble getting the insurance company to pay even when the condition is covered.

And have a wonderful time with your new pup! Be sure to post photos and tell us all about her.
