This is our official “last time” litter. As I began searching for a stud for our other female, Roxy, I came across Cruz. Gorgeous, athletic male who achieved the Hunt Test Hall of Fame!
He is clear on everything – except – Ichthyosis. And Roxy is also a carrier. I ran the COI on both girls at that point, curious how either one would pair up. Bella’s with Cruz is under 4 percent, a number I don’t see all that often in performance/field breedings. This could be very good healthwise.
With Bella being clear for Ichthyosis, I felt I had to try this one more time. A clear male pup could potentially come out of this, and that pup could someday sire Roxy. So, tomorrow I leave for Madison to get a quick progesterone test to see exactly where Bella is at, and go from there for a potential breeding to Cruz!
