Guys - Huckleberry Blue
Best In Show Huckleberry Blue!
Three time International and National Champion, Huckleberry Blue knocks my socks off! Take one look at his two crystal blue eyes, his gorgeous red merle coat, see what a stunner he is! He is a true lovebug, a genuine sweetheart who loves to be cuddled and petted. He will roll right on to his back when approached in hopes you won't be able to resist to give him a belly rub!
Huck has been measured with a wicket. He is 11" tall and weighs 11 lbs.
He has been tested and cleared/all normal for the following: Collie eye anomaly (Chordial hypoplasia, CEA, CH), Cone degeneration (CD), Degenerative myelopathy (DM), Hereditary cataracts (HC, JC), Hyperuricosuria (HUU), Multidrug resistance 1 (MDR1), Multifocal retinopathy 1 (CMR1), Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 6 (NCL).
He is a carrier of Progressive retinal atrophy, Progressive rod-cone degeneration (PRA-PRCD, PRCD) which means he could never be bred to a female that was also a carrier otherwise the pups would be affected. This is exactly why genetic testing is SO IMPORTANT! I responsibly only breed him to CLEAR females so their pups are healthy.
