Attempting to do a breeding this spring on line bred Clarion-type family. Stay tuned. Anticipate the breeding to happen in May 2014. The rest is up to our girl.
The Rocky Saga continues.........Recently, well about six months ago, Goodwin's Tru-Vu Rock Star joined us unexpectedly from Goodwins Collies of Illinois. He is a normal-eyed, non-carrier of CEA. He was ‘sold’ to us as a potential breeding stud. However he was sent without any health information on him or vet inspection, so he was taken to our Vet in Carson City where a comprehensive health screening and lab testing was done on him.
He turned out to be heart worm positive and WVC had to spend alot of money‘cure’ him of this documented disease. And the list goes on what was not well with poor Rocky. We have been silent too long about this poor dog, who came underweight, unexpected, with very bad (stubs in front and needs extractions in the rear of mouth) and dirty teeth, no medical records, unsocialized, and was tested heart worm positive.
We have since given him love and good food, human attention (he lived in a barn most of his prior life, so I was told by Goodwins) and medical attention he needed to save his life from dying of heartworm disease in a few years.
We are now in a legal situation with Goodwin Collies to rectify this situation and get the AKC registration on poor Rocky.
As Breeders, we find it sad that some Breeders think they are above the law! and you see this far too often. So please collie lovers, read beyond the hype and do your homework! Even a Breeder as strict as us, can be taken advantage of as a consumer. ~WVC
