* this puppy has never shown clinical signs of SA.  Her testing was never allowed to be independently confirmed by Dr. Scruggs.  The sire of this litter has never produced an SA puppy other than this one (according to the owner of the sire and he has been bred enough that statistically it would be expected to have revealed more SA cases).  The test result is questionable as to reliability, however we are including this result in our database for full disclosure.

*1this puppy is Tivin True Colours.  She has radiographic signs of DJD, with slight remodeling of the femoral head of one of her hips.  She has no clinical signs and will likely never have need of anything beyond medical management with chondroprotectants, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, etc.  DJD is considered a multifactorial disease, with genetics, nutrition, and environmental influences all playing a role in its development.  The DJD puppy and PennHIP 40% puppy are the same individual. The rest of the puppies in the litter had normal hips with OFA good ratings for those who were tested.  The sire of the litter had an OFA fair rating.
