Knob Hill's Karma
Pedigree shows that both the sire/dam are carriers for PRA, I would highly suggest that you have your pup DNA tested for PRA. Two Carriers can be Afflicted or Carrier. PRA is a affliction that causes late onset blindness so best to know that now. And while the sire/dam show clear for Fanconi, for your peace of mind you should have the DNA done for that also. Each test is 65.00 and well worth the price to know for sure. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me directly. You can find my email on my website link below. The DNA test is a cheek swab that you order and do yourself. Here is the link for DNA testing, just pick Fanconi and Basenji PRA https://www.ofa.org/diseases/dna-tested-diseases
@edo_a I found him on the AKC website and he is now in the database. How about emailing me a photo for inclusion ?
I will be re-indexing and re-uploading the d/b later today so you will be able to see his entire pedigree and trace him back to the founders (eventually !)
I searched for any siblings - 02 through /06 but Edo is the only one from that litter registered with the AKC. Hmmm ! Was he indeed the only one in the litter ?
Yes, both parents are clear/normal for Fanconi so that is a relief but it is still better to get him checked 'in case' ! And both are indeed carriers of PRA which means you should instantly get him checked as tanza outlined.
I don't understand why a breeder would take a chance like this but this may just be me. Of course sometimes there are "accidents".
Such a little cutie! Very nice looking Basenji. And such a clever and fierce hunter to have gotten a fox!
@zande Thank you for adding him to the database for me! He was 1 out of a litter of 6, hopefully some of his siblings will appear soon though. And if you would be able to message me your email address I would be happy to send you a photo to include(: Thank you for your kindness!
