    We never recommend spaying (or neutering) before the age of 2. We like to give the dog time to mature and the growth plates to close. This is per our vet's recommendation.

    Does OFA grade hips according to breed or are all dogs hips judged the same? What I mean is, does one breed have a different criteria for excellent, good, and fair than a different breed.

    I met Frank and Rebel when Lois and I judged an HRC hunt test on Long Island. He was really a nice man and he loved his Boykin. Frank will be missed by everyone who knew him.
