Breeding Restrictions

Breeding Responsibly

       

All Mishna Chow Chows, including those sold specifically for breeding purposes, are sold with Breeders Restrictions on their papers. This means that you cannot register offspring with KUSA until we lift the restriction, which we will do when the dog is

  • certified clear of some of the most serious genetically transmitted diseases, and
  • certified as a satisfactory representative of the breed standard.

This restriction is a precaution against breeding dogs with health or conformation issues, perhaps not immediately apparent to the owner. Of course, this is of absolutely no consequence unless you actually plan to breed, which will have been discussed before you select a particular puppy. Conditions for lifting the restrictions are neither arbitrary nor subjectively applied and KUSA rules that approval cannot be withheld unreasonably.

Effectively, if you plan to breed with your Mishna Chow Chow, you must have the pup X-rayed after 12 months and before 24 months for Hip and Elbow Dysplasia, which is mandatory for all Mishna puppies anyway. X-rays are assessed by specialist veterinarians at Onderstepoort and results forwarded to KUSA for inclusion with the dog's registration.

In addition, the dog must be certified clear, by a registered veterinarian, of Patellar Luxation, Entropion and PPM. And the dog must be shown successfully at minimum of one Championship show, for an impartial breed-expert opinion on the conformation and movement of the dog.

Breeding restrictions apply equally to male and female dogs.
