New testing

I think it's just nice to tell my story 😃

I just signed Buana in at a DNA fingerprint test, as he is a stud, lot of breeders ask for a DNA profile to see or to have a copy..
So within a few days, we receive a swab-test and then after 4 weeks he has is own official DNA fingerprint!
We already tested him for HD, theroid and eyes, his parents both are prob. clear for fanconi but we're thinking about testing both boys also for ourselfes..

And about a few weeks, we're going to plan all the health testing for Chafuko,
HD, Theroid, eyes, and DNA.
So i'm exciting about the results of my little Brindle baby..
If everything is good, he wil be available too but I think it's nice to know the results for ourselfe!
Our vet can't wait untill we're coming with our clan.. he is totally in love with the Basenji's…. (I worked there a longer time and even now he send his assistents away and let me assist even with the HD pics!! too cool)

We'll see! I'll keep you updated!:D

Congratulations on getting the health testing done!

Since the Fanconi test is only a Marker test there is no such thing as Clear By Parentage. All dogs being used in breeding programs should be tested prior to breeding.

Yes, that's why we want to test our boys too. It's nice to know the parents are clear but we want to know for sure :D!

Well! Great news!

We just made plans to test Chafuko in the near future but we had to plan that a little bit earlier!!!! :d
Chafuko has been asked as stud!!!!!!
I won't tell much more at the moment because I first want to know everything for sure 🙂
It sure is a fine breeder, makes al the health tests and the bitch is tested prob. clear for fanconi.

But about the testing, we just enterd our forms at the OFA site for both boys (parents are clear but the stud dog has to be tested himself so we also entered Buana)
This thursday we have an appointment with the vet for his eyes testing, hips, theroid and ha..

Does anyone know whats the time between entering the forms on the OFA website and getting the test at home?

Wow, congrats. I will keep my fingers and toes crossed that things turn out. I was told on y post earlier last week that it takes about 3-4 weeks to get results back, but sometimes even faster. I am waiting for Otis's results as well, so I am eager to know when they are coming..

I would think that they mail them out pretty quickly, and it is just a small package for the swabs… but I don't know how long international mail takes...

Another update!

Yesterday we made everything clear on both sides and the bitch that should come to holland (it's a bitch that lives with an other family) seems to not have had het reabies shot..
She can't come to Holland next month 😞 We and of course the breeder are very sad because everything was already fully arranged..
She sure wanted to use Chafuko, so we tried to find out if we should be able to come to Sweden with Chafuko. But also he has to be rabies tested before he can go…

No we have new arrangements for next year 🙂
Chafuko will become a daddy of one of her own Basenji's (a very pretty red and white female)
This lady is a bit too young for breeding this year, otherwise she maybe had come to Holland with her. (and two litters are a bit busy)

We're so proud of our Chafuko..
We sure have to be carefull with the litter... or we'll end up with another B... hahaha

very exiting Kim :d

Conrats to all future Chafuko?s girfriends! It smells like new basenji puppy to your pack:)))))))

If it?s up to me…. 😃

I'm happy I've a husband that knows the limit for now.... hahaha
3 dogs, cat, baby on the way... hahahaha
I always said: The first dog thats coming to our home is a Wolfdog.. so... that won't come out of Chaufko.. (but a puppy of your own dog... aaaahhhh well maybe)

Buana - have you considered collecting Chafuko and using the chilled semen AI? That way neither dog would have to undergo the stress of travel.

OT (sorry!)….Isn't rabies a mandatory shot over there?

We are required to do rabies here in the states.
What are your rules?

@sharronhurlbut:

Rabies is not required here in the Netherlands, only if you are planning to travel to another country. For Sweden and Norway you need to get the rabies shot very early and after 4 months you need a bloodtest. Dogs are only allowed to enter the country when the titer is high enough. Something similar for the UK, but then one month between shot and bloodtest.

We never considered that, I will get information about that (for this time it's too late but for a next time) I'ts always good to know.

Looks like your connection to Basenji Forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
