Velvet Vom Hazak, RATI

Velvet is a red and black European Showline daughter of our Finn that we're immensely proud to have in our program. Like her Dad, she has a very sweet temperament and is wonderful with kids. She is very graceful in movement, confident, playful, and reliable. She shows an abundance of potential with her deep coloring, gorgeous expression, sound temperament, and excellent conformation. As a part of our foster program, Velvet is thoroughly loved and enjoyed by her family (especially her kids!) in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Velvet's motherline has proven longevity with sound temperaments. Her mother is a therapy dog (BH AD TDI CGC CGCA IT) as well as her grandmother (V Z'Flores Vom Mittelwest SCH2 AD CGC TDI). Regarding her fatherline, Velvet is daughter to our Finn who boasts an impressive lineage. Her paternal grandfather is VA Saabat von Aurelius SCHH3, IPO3! Her pedigree also includes notable dogs like VA1 Ober von Bad-Boll SCHH3 , 2X VA1(CN) V6 Dux de Intercanina SCHH3, VA (BSZS + B + I) Paer vom Hasenborn SCHH3 FH1, and VA3(A) Juri vom Schollweiher SCHH3 IPO3!

She also tested DNA CLEAR of the following known to effect German Shepherds:

  • Von Willebrand Disease (all types, I, II, & III)
  • Canine Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency Type III (LAD3)
  • Factor VIII Deficiency, Hemophilia A, (F8 Exon 1 & 11)
  • Hyperuricosuria and Hyperuricemia or Urolithiasis
  • MDR1 Drug Sensitivity
  • Mucopolysaccharidosis Type VII, Sly Syndrome
  • Achromatopsia CNGA3 (Exon 7 SNP)
  • Malignant Hyperthermia
  • Renal Cystadenocarcinoma and Nodular Dermatofibrosis (RCND)
  • X-linked Ectodermal Dysplasia Anhidrotic Ectodermal Dysplasia

She tested as carrier for only one out of the 170+ genetic conditions tested. She is Degenerative Myelopathy N/A—so she will only be paired with studs that are tested DM N/N “clear” and none of her puppies will ever be at risk. This is why we test! We’re thankful that these tests are available to us and also very thankful for the ongoing research that will continue to aid our program.None of Velvet's puppies will have two abnormal genes and therefore be considered “at risk” for any of the above.
