Rutlands Australian Cobberdogs
Since canine DNA testing 1st became available Rutlands dogs were tested by A.S.A.P. Orivet and Optigen. Paw Print recently became my DNA laboratory of choice.
DNA HEALTH TESTED. Rutlands breeding dogs come from generations of extensive DNA stock, tested CLEAR for the complete panel of hereditary diseases known to be possible in the breed.
Disease Panels represent the range of inheritable diseases found in a particular breed. Even though a dog or a dog's lineage may not indicate that some of these diseases are in the breeding line, most inherited diseases are silent and not recognizable in the carriers.
Breeding two carriers together may produce some puppies in the litter with disease. By testing for all the diseases in this panel, and selective breeding, we can eliminate the chance that these diseases will be passed on to the offspring.
We enjoy living with a small group of our Cobberdogs while others live pampered lives with families known to us. These girls return for honeymoons and to raise their puppies. When the boys have proven their worth, they are offered to other breeders to widen the reach of quality and consistency. Sometimes we have one collected and his semen frozen for Artificial Insemination in the future. When this occurs his price is adjusted accordingly.
RUTLANDS LIL PRINCE CHARMING
The little Prince is a parti coloured Miniature who is making a name for himself in 2019 by consistently producing quality offspring with his own wonderfully sweet Therapy nature beautiful coats and sound conformation.
In his first season at stud-2019- he proved himself worthy to be called a "stud" consistently producing truly beautiful progeny in looks and nature.
Ever been told that Miniatures are higher energy and yappy? Not Rutlands Miniatures!
RUTLANDS LIL ALFRED
ALFIE was exported to America to Jill Crenshaw. Jill kindly made his semen available for me to import back into Australia and Alfie has had a profound influence for good on the smaller sizes of the Australian Cobberdog.
Rutlands Lil Mountain Flower whose picture is on this slideshow was Alfie's sweet little mother.
RUTLANDS LIL ZEPHYR
"Zephyr" means a gentle breeze. He is the son of Tegans Poetic Breeze. Aptly named, Zephyr has had a profound influence on the smaller Australian Cobberdogs; an influence that wafted in to the breed like a welcome cool breeze on a hot afternoon.
RUTLANDS PARTI ATTIRE
Tye is a larger miniature bordering on medium size and he showed his considerable talents by successfully breeding a tall standard sized bride unaided on his very 1st honeymoon.
He has proven himself to be a pre-potent sire in his first season, passing on his own good looks sound conformation and lovely Therapy temperament.
