The Kennel Club now have Estimated Breeding Values for Labradors. Roo's EBVs are as follows:

Elbows -27 (confidence 43%) and Hips -38 (confidence 51%).  This means that she is genetically less likely to pass on hip and elbow problems than the breed average Labrador. The following is a link to the results and a Kennel Club explanation and rationale: http://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/services/public/mateselect/ebv/Default.aspx?breed=2048

Roo is a pet and lives in the house with the rest of the gang although she also enjoys beating on local shoots.

Roo had her first litter (all sold) in June 2015. She will be mated in late 2016/ early 2017 to Ettinsmoor Mister Ed. The litter will be fox red.
