Soon you will see here a detailed form requesting information regarding what health testing has been done on Staffordshire Bull Terriers. The goal for creating this database is so that we, as preservers of the breed can create a clearer view of the health of the breed based upon voluntary testing and reporting.
The form is optional, of course. Our intentions are to offer a searchable database of which dogs are being tested for what specifics. Some of this information can also be found in the OFA database however we wish to present a Stafford specific database. Once we receive enough information we plan to create graphs showing results and details of interest.
Health testing is a personal choice and using what information you gain from the result of this testing is also very personal – however – we hope that it can be used wisely to improve the overall health of this breed. For instance, by only breeding clear to clear specimen we can completely eliminate both Hereditary Cataracts and L2-HGA in the breed. Thank you in advance for your support.
