None of my puppies will be affected with - PRA1, PRA2, prcd-PRA or NCL.
NCL: "This neurologic disease becomes apparent at approximately 13 months of age. Often the first sign of disease is a subtle loss of coordination that is more apparent when the dog is excited. The extent of the incoordination gradually increases. The dog may begin pacing or circling when 15 months old and seizures often start before 18 months of age. Visual impairment and behavioral changes also start at that time. The neurologic deficiencies slowly but relentlessly increase and affected Golden Retrievers are often euthanized due to deteriorating quality of life when 30-to-35 months old."
"Progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) is a group of genetic diseases seen in certain breeds of dogs. Similar to retinitis pigmentosa in humans, it is characterized by the bilateral degeneration of the retina, causing progressive vision loss culminating in blindness."
Normal gestation for a female dog is 63 days, and it takes 8 weeks for the puppies to be ready to leave their mother and go to a new home. Please keep this in mind as you plan for your new puppy. This gives you plenty of time to research how is the best way to care for your puppy as it grows, to prepare your home for your puppy, and to prepare your family for the new addition.
Taking a puppy into your home is serious business. It's like bringing home a new baby from the hospital: there is a lot of responsibility involved. There will be messes to clean, potty training to do, teething to deal with, and manners to learn. A puppy is cute and fun, but it takes dedication and patience from the human(s) to help the puppy grow into a good dog.
