The 'Bass' Litter 2014

Exciting News !!!!!

Lily & Bass babies arrived on 14th October 2014.

9 beautiful puppies - 6 boys & 3 girls. 

Lily successfully passed all of her genetic screening with good results and with this litter she will contribute greatly to the very limited Australian gene pool.   Her temperament is outstanding.

You can view Lily's pedigree & health results here 

This was an AI (artificial insemination litter) using imported frozen semen.  

We are delighted that the Sire of this litter is the stunning boy Bass (NZ CH Leonz Wicked Worthington By Skyewood).   We are honoured & very grateful that his co-owners Lyn Dickins (Derbyshire Leonbergers NZ) & Fran Baars (Skyewood Leonbergers NZ) agreed to send us frozen semen from Bass to use over Lily.

Copies of pedigrees & the health results for Lily & Bass were provided to all of the puppy owners.

Responsible & ethical breeders should test their breeding Leonbergers for the following conditions,

Hip Dysplasia

Elbow Dysplasia

Hereditary Eye Conditions (such as Cataracts, Entropion, Ectropion) and should only breed dogs with a clear eye result at the time of mating.

Leonberger Polyneuropathy LPN1  & LPN2 - (a DNA test)

There is no cure or treatment for dogs afflicted with Leonberger Polyneuropathy.  It is our opinion that ANY Leonberger breeder who chooses not to test their  breeding dogs for LPN1 & LPN2 is behaving in a reckless, irresponsible & unethical manner.
