That sounds good so far but the real story will be at two. I have a friend who has a Shiloh that had textbook perfect elbpws and hips at age one prelims and by age two had grade 2 CDH in one hip, osteoarthritis and elbow dysplasia. It was a shock for all of us but it did teach us the reason for waiting to stud a Shiloh until the xrays are done at 2 years old.
