Which litter? yours is a half sibling to mine either way, with Esko being their sire. Who is mom?

For those of you with True Haus dogs. I'm curious as to what their hip rating is, if you don't mind sharing.

I was going to xray Zeus at 4 months the vet recommended I wait until he's 6 or 8 months. I'll let you know then

True Haus is on the top of my list. I have been to their site and met many of the dogs. Great looking place and the dogs are tremendous. We are looking for an active family pet.

There is one concern I have with the breeding between Esko and Terra and Esko and Stella. ERNST vom WEINBERBLICK and LEWIS vom MALATESTA are in the pedigree of all three of these dogs.

Is this a red flag?

Nothing to worry about?

Should I avoid those pairings or the breeder all-together?

Here is a mating test for Esko x Terra: Line-breeding for the progency of SG Esko vom Klammeck and Terra vom True Haus. Basically, it shows a 3-3 linebreeding on Ernst v. Weinbergblick. With Esko x Stella, it is a 3-4 linebreeding on Ernst: Line-breeding for the progency of SG Esko vom Klammeck and Stella vom True Haus

My understanding of linebreeding is as follows: linebreeding concentrates the genetics of the dog linebred upon, meaning it will concentrate the good and the bad of that dog, and generally lead to lesser variability in a litter. It can also increase the chance of bringing recessive genes to the fore.

Following are a couple articles on linebreeding:

You will hear various viewpoints on linebreeding. For me personally, a 3-3 or a 3-4 linebreeding on a great dog from a breeder who knows what they are doing and is experienced with the bloodline would be more of a selling point than a red flag. This, of course, would depend upon what else was in the pedigree. It would seem to me that your best bet is to talk to the folks at Truehaus about this. They are experienced with this bloodline and, by all accounts I have heard (I have no personal experience with them), they are good breeders.

Thank you for the info! It looks like I have some reading to do. I do plan on talking with Cindy about it, but figured I wanted to have some idea of about the info she will give me. When she invited me to see the facility and dogs, we talked about what their goals are in the breeding program. I was unaware of the linebreeding (or what linebreeding was).

If you are in N. California this weekend, I believe True Haus is holding a SDA trail at their place today.
