If JAxson is on k9data, post his link to the 'choosing a breeder' section of this forum and someone will know someone using at least part of the pedigree. If he's not on k9data, you can scan his registration papers and email to me (since you don't have enough posts to pm anyone) and I will put it on the k9data database for you and give you that link, so you can put in a photo and he can be a part of GR history. COD and date of death is helpful as well. [email protected]
Thanks very much for responding to my post.
Unfortunately, for reasons I donít understand, neither Jaxson, nor his two siblings, are registered. His father was Hubble and Mom Lyric.
I have seen his fatherís information on K9data. I guess my question is how to find out which of his offspring are breeding?
Our Jax was huge Ė close to 100 lbs, but not fat. Big chest and big head, but a gentle giant, as chill as could be.
We got lucky and found a breeder near us the first time, but have no clue how to proceed this time as the breeder has moved out of state.
My friend who breeds the RainyDay Goldens bred her lovely bitch BISS GCH Rainyday's Secret Garden using frozen from Hubble last year and had 6 Hubbell pups. Wochica Goldens kept a puppy and she kept a girl named Rocket. They will be out showing next year.

Not knowing the reason and seeing a couple half-siblings with mild & moderate and many fair, I'd probably personally look toward a breeding with parents of good-excellent rated hips to improve ratings. Anyone's thought?
The vertical pedigree is fascinating to look at on OFA. Still, many many dogs in that pedigree and statistically I think well above average for passing from what I glanced at. With that many, I wouldn't expect every dog to pass with every different breeding, frankly.
When you get a frequently used sire it becomes difficult to determine where any dysplasia may come from - hereditary, environmental, both, sire's side, dam's side... and it doesn't always pop up until years later... Was it just a mismatch between them both and a different pair would have thrown something excellent? I think that's where these vertical pedigrees can help us more too.
Anyhow -- NOT knocking. These are awesome dogs with great accomplishments. Just wondering how on earth to continually improve. Any positive suggestions welcome.
