Help me find about my dogs pedigree history?

some members on here seem so knowledgable about researching a dogs history. i have no idea how to begin to look this up. my male golden was purchased at 8 weeks from "Desert Goldens" (aka Nancy Knapp) in Desert Hot Springs, CA. i think sometimes its also advertised as Palm Springs, CA too. his parents were known as Thunder (dad) and Macy (mom) and litter was born 5/1/2011. parents have both since been retired but i know the sire was used many times in previous litters with the breeder. the only other thing i know about the mother is that she was originally purchased from a breeder in Georgia before coming to southern california.

Tucker (my boy) is AKC registered and that is about all i have. i dont have the papers in front of me so i dont know the parents registered names off the top off my head. do i need that information to start my search?

He was purchased with limited AKC registration and contract as it was no problem since i was only looking for a friendly family dog but i am curious as what his parents history and so on is.

Thanks for your help! :)

If you have your dog's AKC number you can purchase a 4 or 5 generation pedigree online from the AKC to start with.

You don't always have to purchase the pedigree - thanks to K9data...

Here is the sire's pedigree...

Pedigree: Sandar Thunder Of The Desert

You should also have received a simple pedigree from your breeder which should have given you parents behind the female that you could have linked up on k9data - I'd sort that out before buying the pedigree.

Oh here's she is...

i didnt know that. thanks! would that include if they all had medical screenings too? i wasnt even really aware of how important eyes/hips/elbows and etc were before i spent time on this forum.

Yes OFA has their clearances the Dam only shows elbows not sure if she did pin hips or not

Go to Type in the sire's/dame's names in the search area. You will get a pedigrees if they have been entered. I did a quick search and here's the link to Thunder's pedigree.

Pedigree: Sandar Thunder Of The Desert

Whoops. Others were faster that I was!

wow, thanks for the quick help guys! its a relief to see all the clearances the sire had at least.

Altairss 03-22-2013 08:56 PM

You can also see that although the Dam doesn't list full clearances on OFA you can see behind her there what her parents etc had. And it could be she had heart and eyes that were not sent in and OFA does not list pen hips. You should be able to ask the breeder for those if not listed.
