Moshe JH, CHIC

Moshe is a sweet, highly intelligent boy who loves every human he meets. He leads the pack in love, play and discipline. He has wonderful smiles and knows they make us laugh. Sometimes his jowl gets stuck on his teeth which makes us laugh all the more (see picture directly below the text on this page). Life events prevented Richard from training Moshe until he was almost 5 years old. He was entered in AKC Junior hunt tests the weekends of 4/28-29/2018 and 5/26- 5/27/2018 and passed, so he has completed his Junior Hunter title. Moshe is only available for placement because he is related to all of our girls; and we have a need to keep our breeding numbers low because all of our dogs live in our home. He is 7 years old as of this writing (12/31/20). As for health, he has had a lot of genetic testing done and has passed all tests (click on OFA link below for details). Moshe's dam is a French import with no known genetic health problems for 6 generations, according to her owner. His sire, Elvis, along with some of Elvis' littermates, were imported from Russia as pups and to our knowledge, no known genetic health problems have arisen in any of them. Both of his parents are OFA certified. Moshe has a nice, long pelvis, which provides necessary rear power in a working dog; contrary to the short and somewhat flat pelvis shelves seen in many of today's show dogs. He has many other working assets, but working fronts and rears are disappearing in our breed (and in our sport). These are qualities we can't afford to lose. That said, I feel it is important to not only mention their importance, but to reinforce our commitment to considering these assets in our breeding program (with health and temperament reigning supreme in our decisions). According to UC Davis’ Genetic Diversity testing, Moshe is unrelated to 63.4% of standard poodles. Moshe’s OFA Verification (CHIC 106126) UC Davis Genetic Diversity Results
