Abbreviations?

What do these abbreviations mean with my dog's sire side? OFA44G and OFEL44

Is there a way to find out more about my dog's family?

Here's a photo of his certificate



Thanks!

You can try to find them in the pedigree database.

The Pedigree Database - Home of the pedigree enthusiast

The abbreviations that you mentioned -- OFA44G -- are for the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals. They rate hip and elbow xrays for dysplasia. 44 is the number of months old the dog is, and G is gor "good" which is the rating. Orthopedic Foundation for Animals
