@karabovm - You might try https://www.kusa.co.za/index.php kennel club in south africa, they might be able to give you some leads.... or try and find a dog show and visit them. Also you can ask other breeders of other hounds if they know of one.
I would say that if one had planned to get a pup before this all occurred, then perhaps it would be good timing, as it would give one the opportunity of spending more time with the pup in the crucial early days. Of course things will change and the routine will be different, but there are ways to ease into the new schedule so it isn't an abrupt shift from always being there to suddenly being absent.
Somehow, this makes me glad I feed 'doodle' human-grade food. Tonight's dinner: shredded chicken breast, green beans and carrots, with a smidge of puree'd pumpkin. Spoiled, healthy, alive, (but most of all) loved.
Seems like every decade or so, they do similar studies with similar outcomes and yet people still want to believe a mixed breed is healthier.
And what I'd like to know is WHY it isn't logic to understand that a purebred dog from generations of healthy dogs, bred for health, bred to diminish genetic disorders, is more likely to be healthy than a dog from mixed parents from people who simply let it happen with no idea of health or genetics. European studies have shown what incredible differences it makes on things like CHD and other inherited disorders when you breed clear to clear, clear to effected, etc. With their massive research I wish they would go back and separate out the well bred/tested purebreds from those without health/dna clearances.
Recently there was a recall of Innova Dry Dog Foods which produces a Grain-Free food that I was using at the time called EVO. Recall was for Salmonella found in numerous batches of their product line. Innova also makes numerous other dog foods (EVO, Innova, California Natural and Healthwise), worth checking into! I am new to this website and posting altogether and apologize if this was out of context.
You would be surprise what the tax is going to hit. I am in the medical equipment business with a manufacturing company and it is amazing what is going to be taxed, down to the smallest little nut and bolt….
Day to day Vet care may not be directly impacted, but for surgery centers/specialists and care involving surgery (which is expensive enough), these costs for procedures will increase.
Something to keep in mind when putting money away for that "rainy day"...
