Re: ZW score
I would only use the ZW as a rough guide.....it does not take into account hip ratings done anywhere else. If a dog has a low/high birth number, it can be exported, bred in another county, and none of the progeny entered into the database - and the number listed can be very misleading!
Basha, being Belgian born and rated there, got a 100....one pup of her first litter was breed surveyed, and got a 100....so her number stayed high. Looks not so good! BUT - looking at OFAs, she has produced 2 OFA Excellents, 3 or 4 OFA Goods and a OFA Fair - those done as 'a' normals and 'a' fast normal would drop her number significantly.........the reverse is true - a dog who had a bunch of dogs fail would push the ZW up, but it does not happen!
Best to look at both listings and then decide if the dog is a good or bad risk
