Any responsible breeder should do everything in their power to produce physically sound and healthy dogs. Hip dysplasia is common in almost every medium/large breed of dog. Nothing is worse than raising a puppy up to be your hunting/family companion only to find out in a few years it has hip dysplasia that will cause it to be physically unsound and unable to perform to its potential, not to mention the vet costs trying to keep your pet comfortable. Always ask a breeder if they perform health tests on their breeding dogs before purchasing a puppy.
All our breeding dogs have been OFA certified.
