Moshe JH, CHIC

Moshe is a sweet boy who leads the pack in love, play and discipline.  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.  Now the training for a Senior Hunter title begins. Moshe carries brown and produces that with girls that also carry brown. 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. This fact should help the breed tremendously (and add diversity to future Harmony Mountain poodles). 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 conformational 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 63.2% of standard poodles. Moshe’s OFA Verification (CHIC 106126) UC Davis Genetic Diversity Results
