I had some issues with my breeder and I don't really stay in contact.

I would never get another dog from her even though I really enjoy the one I have.

In the future I hope to find a breeder who is responsible and is what I'm looking for to get my next dog from and form a relationship with like many of the people on here have. Unfortunately I haven't found one yet but I am a few years from looking at another dog so I haven't really been looking hard.

I keep in very close contact with Orion's breeder.
Initially when I got Orion I would catch up with her every few months and we got on very well then about 18 months ago she was short a handler for an upcoming show so I volunteered to help out - I had never show handled before lol but thankfully I knew the bitch she had entered was a little pro and we did very well! Long story short I had an absolute blast and I've been handling her dogs ever since. She has been breeding dogs for close to 50 years and is a very well renowned judge so I am incredibly lucky that she has taken me under her wing Smile I am now round there at least once a week for a cup of coffee and a chat Smile at the moment it is considerably more often than that because she has lovely litter of 4 adorable little munchins just on 3 weeks old

Very jealous. I would love this. One day fingers crossed.

An update on Lutsen's Breeder: She sent another email after our correspondence on how Lutsen is doing and asked if she could feature him in a past litter update...I got to see some pictures of Lutsen's littermates...they all look so much alike!

Isn't it awesome Greta! I actually saved pics to my computer of all Kohdi's littermates (Mishka's too!) not sure why but, I did! lol.

With my last two huskies I would have LOVED to know of their siblings. Mostly because I desperately need to know if any of them turned out with the same seizure disorders as mine. It's like, I can never be 100% certain it was not something caused by me, or their surroundings here, etc. I can never have closure. I did have a relationship with the breeder, she was so informative, especially on things like diet, a pic I had sent her of Malukhai she asked permission to use on her site and it was the only one of its kind on her site, so I was pretty honored. But with the seizures, she claimed mine were the only ones Sad

I am so sorry Jimmy! I can't imagine seeing a dog go through that! I've heard of huskies having seizures before...especially on this forum. Is it specific to this breed or do other breeds experience this?


P.s. I also have Lutsen's sire and dam and litermates saved on my phone Smile!

Thank you Greta. It was tough. Sad

No, seizures are not specific to huskies at all. It can happen in any breed really. Huskies are pretty high up on the list though from what I've read. One of the reasons I chose the breeder I got Kohdi and Mishka from is because she specifically mentions epilepsy in her health guarantee. Anyways, I didn't mean for my post to take your topic in another direction, I'm sorry about that. I had only meant that I wish I had known some of Malukhai and Anuschka's siblings to know how they are doing right now or if they suffered the same fate as mine. Just one of those things that haunts me.

So no more seizure talk. I'm glad you reached out to your breeder and good things have come from it! That's awesome!

On the contrary Jimmy...i think knowing about the health of the blood line associated with the puppy you're getting goes hand in hand with breeder relationships! We are blessed to have healthy happy animals Smile
