I just know several people have remarked about how beautiful he is etc...I'm simply making inquiries.
He is healthy, though the Vet said he COULD stand to loose about 5 or 6 pounds, I've been taking him out for long walks, which he of course, loves.
I looked on his certificate and it is not limited.
As far as Toby's weight, he is overweight...my vet said about 10/15 pounds, so he is getting more walks, we could both stand to loose weight.
But she said his hips look perfect without any x-rays, they felt fine to her.
He runs very fast, but he still is very young so....
Hi Mary! Welcome to the forum! As other posters have mentioned, it is really important to be sure of the ancestors' health history before beginning to stud out your beautiful dog. As gorgeous as he is, those health clearances (including hip x-rays, not just looking/feeling) are SO
important, and it's only fair for all of the innocent little puppies that will be brought into the world!
Personally if I was in your situation, I would use GoldenSail's advice to pass on studding your one-of-a-kind Toby, and research/get another dog that comes from great lines where their pedigree is full of clearances and some titles if you are still interested in breeding.
Good luck and all the best!
