The OFA database is open to the public. What did she lie about - the results? Or that the puppy would have good hips. Now I’m curious more than anything. It is possible that both parents tested good or even excellent and still produced dysplasia. If it was that easy to eliminate, it would be gone by now.
So, no breeder should claim that a puppy could never be dysplastic if parents passed OFA hip clearances, but the likelihood is much less. And the severity is less as well; I’ve known a few dogs that did not pass OFA from a breeding perspective but were never really clinically lame.
I think whether breeding is “a business” is questionable. This came up recently on the Dog Show Forum group on Facebook. Someone claimed to know a “reputable breeder” that was breeding show quality puppies from titled parents and “living comfortably” off the profits. Most people responded “good for them!” but a lot of people (including myself) wondered how it could be possible. Titling a dog is expensive. Like up to $20K depending on the breed, when you consider all the entries, grooming, gas, hotels, clothes, etc. So it makes it hard to believe anyone could live “comfortably” off the profits of breeding titled dogs. It is possible…but unusual.
