OFA Fair is certified free of dysplasia. Yes I would breed OFA Fair. Heidi is Fair, her four litter sisters are Good. Heidi is the one I like best conformation wise, and she has an awesome temperament. But, she is too small to breed naturally, and AI was not successful. I would so have loved to have pups out of her.
Would I do a test breeding on a dog with HD, and sell all the puppies on a limited registration? Well, what would be the point. Yes a dog with HD, can produce good hips. But, they can also produce bad hips. And if you aren't breeding for the future, to keep and breed progeny, well, it is best to just love the dog, work with her, take her to trials. But there are enough dogs in the gene pool to leave out dogs with HD from your breeding program, even if she is the sweetest, nicest, prettiest thing you have ever participated in creating. That is when breeders shed tears, when the pup fails the two year old test, after being exemplary in all other ways.
