She's been bred twice already? She was born in August 2008? Ugh.
Well, she has a pedigree full of very nice dogs. Although, it's a bit of a jumble, in some ways--West German on the top (Jabina Lewis is Danish but out of two top West German working dogs). Dam side has some top WGr working dogs and the bottom (dam's dam) is Belgian and Dutch--although there's only two Dutch dogs in the first 6 generations.
There is no negative influence from the Dutch dogs in her pedigree. Those are good bloodlines.
Closer in, the first 3 generations show fewer titles--were these dogs worked?
If you choose to breed her again, I'd recommend avoiding adding any more Fero (since she is linebred on a Fero son).
Does she have hip/elbow xrays? In the picture on the pdb site, her shoulder looks odd--like there's very little muscle in her upper arm--is that just a funny effect of the picture?
Yes the previous owner bred her last spring to her male GSD it was her last chance since he was 11 and then bred her again to his son in the fall. I was pretty upset with her for breeding her back to back.
She most likely had very little muscle. The previous owner kept her in a kennel most of the time so she would put weight on. That and she only fed her Nutro puppy food which Nakita didnt like.
No I dont believe they were worked, I cant find anything on those dogs.
I do have a friend that went over the pedigree and said that
Nakita's pedigree on the Dam's side looks like someone has played around with the information and that Dogs in Germany don't have OFA certifications - they receive an A stamp.
Also she said "Nakita's Dam is very european type (visually) Looking at her pedigree she is like a Holland dog. KNPV dogs are not purebred - they are bred with other breds to make them work (nothing wrong with it- but they are not typically AKC registery unless someone played with the papers) majority or all of them I know of that are papered legit are UKC registry (still fine).
Nakita is a mix of German blood and Austria/Holland. Extreme differences in breeding standards. So with this mix you can get inconsistancy in the litter. Typically you breed for a reason."
As for the elbows and hips we are still waiting to hear back on them.
