The boys are also DNA tested for hereditary diseases This means that the puppies will not develop the disease that they were tested for. However, not all things are able to be tested by DNA or are hereditary.
Bess, Ruscombe Tansy was my foundation girl who started a long line of girls and Pete is the first boy that I have kept. He is the 9th progeny from Bess, not sure who many Great greats there are in that ! I bought Bess in 1984 and still carrying the line and hope that Pete will produce some great dogs in the future . The following pictures show his parents and grandparents . Strange to get some of the very same characteristics coming through, look at Bess' ears ! Pete is just the other way round!
