OFA question

As most of you know we had aquired a male thats 22 months and person that placed him with us had said that he was already prelimbed, the problem is that I can't find his rating on the OFA data base. So does this mean he wasn't done?

Re: OFA question

Prelims are not posted on the website. Many people also do not send in prelims to OFA. I don't.

Re: OFA question

Have you tried searching by his registration number? If I were to go and search my girl by name, I can't find her but when I put in her registration number, she popped up. Also, if the prelims were done before 12 months, they won't show up in search or if done over 12 months, the box to release results wasn't checked on the application. When you go to the homepage, toward the top, on the right, is the place to search. Good luck.

Re: OFA question

No it is not too early, but anything under 1 year is NOT posted on the website - you may be able to call or have them send a copy of their certificate. Anyway hips can and do change so even if he prelimed then, doesn't mean he will pass at 2.

I would x-ray a dog of his age prior to buying him.

Re: OFA question

Well I have appointment with Dr Link on Friday to have him checked out before any money changes hands. I had our vet kind of check him out, to keep everybody honest I would feel better if he went up to Madison for a exam.

Re: OFA question

The OFA database only lists prelims done when the dog was 12 months of age or older. They don't list prelims done younger. So if he was prelimed at 7 months old, it's corect for them not to be on the database. Doesn't mean they weren't done.

The owner should have recieved paperwork back from OFA wit his prelim scores, and should be able to provide that paperwork to you. You can also try emailing or calling OFA. I don't know if they'll give that info out or not, but it's worth a try.

Re: OFA question

Gracie was prelimed at 8.5 months. It is not posted on the site but when I used the search option, inputting her registration number, it showed up for me. The general public can't get to it, only who has her registration number (myself and breeder). Once you get the paperwork, you may find your dog that way.

Re: OFA question

Thanks Chris,
Jero developed a limp a day after he was delievered to us. But I made a appointment for friday with DR LINK in Madison Wisc. Although his linp look not to be from the hip but instead his knee. Thank god we seen this before any kind of money changed hands. I thought that maybe he may have injured it in the trailer that he was riding in last week. See our trainer friend has a dog trailer which he picked up the dogs in last week. Any other advice would be great
