Well, there's no elbow clearance on the dam. There's also no genetics testing listed for the dam which would concern me since the sire is an ichthyosis carrier. Actually, there are quite a few incomplete clearances.

How did you find this breeder?

Edited to add - I see from another post that you already have the little guy & he's adorable! At this point, I'd probably just use the pedigree to see what you might be watching out for, and let your vet know. Since his dam and grand-dam were missing elbow clearances, I'd probably keep a close eye on that.

Enjoy your little fluffball!

Thanks for the reply.
I should have added that I do have a copy of both parents eye, elbow, hip and heart clearances. I don’t understand how to read the information on K9 data so anything you can explain is greatly appreciated ☺

Yes, Bentley came home on February 23rd. No matter what his pedigree says, he’s perfect to me.

You probably were shown a preliminary elbow clearance. The dam doesn't have elbow clearance. Nor does her full sibling. https://www.ofa.org/advanced-search?f=sr&appnum=1785873 and if you wanted to know if he has the ICT gene, pawprint genetics is having a sale through July.
It's something I'd suggest doing since his sire (http://www.k9data.com/pedigree.asp?ID=637447)is a carrier, and his dam's sire is at least a carrier- see the offspring https://www.ofa.org/advanced-search?appnum=1700640 affected and carriers on OFA_ https://www.ofa.org/advanced-search?f=sr&appnum=1471666
so there is a more than reasonable possibility that your boy might be an affected, which would be something the vet would want to know.

Neuter

My boy was neutered on Monday. He was feeling pretty rough when he got home but he’s doing great now. I just have to figure out how to keep him calm. The cone doesn’t hold him back much. He just plows through everything.

Awww sweet Bentley! Glad he's doing better. You might want to try some filled frozen Kongs or maybe marrow bones to keep him busy. That last week is the hardest! It'll be over before you know it and he'll be back to his usual self :)

My Bentley boy went to the groomers today. He is so handsome! Our groomer is also his breeder. She is very happy with our sweet boy! I really should have taken a before picture. He was looking pretty messy.

He is so cute!!! i was looking back at his pictures and the cone ones are too cute, when my girl was spayed she was so confused and upset with the cone we never made her wear it and she never once touched her incision site we were lucky!!

congrats!!!
