retired weizenfelder border collies
Sage von der Weizenfelder
Dob: 11-17-13 (OFA Hip: Excellent) (OFA Elbow: Normal)
Sage was bred only once with our Kennel.
This outgoing, extremely athletic Girl produced a puppy with disease in the brain.
Not anything we could have tested for.
Not anything we could have ever prevented.
Not even common in this breed!
We did decide. No matter how healthy this girl was, even after passing all the genetic testing we put her through...
We will not be breeding her again.
We don't know why these things happen. It may have been a total fluke but we wont risk it again!
We can only do our best as Breeder to learn from it and move past.
Sage has been Retired from our program on 10/29/2018
