CORRIE DHU WYN
Wyn is Sara's new dog, or to be more precise,
Sara's champion Mawlch Cap will turn 9
soon and although Sara wasn't too happy with the fact that we
will have 5th dog in our household, she decided that it is time
for her to get a new pup, so that Cap can slowly go to his well
Wyn came to us from known Scottish kennel
Corrie Dhu. Wyn's
sire Glen (Chance) 280433 and her dam Canen Elsie 285796 are
keen sheepdogs who work sheep every day with lot of enthusiasm.
Both of them have excellent hips, checked eyes for PRA and they
are DNA normal for CEA and TNS.
Wyn is a happy, playful pup who shows many
qualities which are going to help her become a good working
dog. She has a strong prey drive, she is completely sound tolerant,
she learns fast and likes to cooperate. Sara plans to train
agility, SAR and obedience and Alen is surely going to check
how much sheep sense and style she inherited from her parents.
After few months
of suspicion, because of Wyn’s strange, “bunny-like”
movement of the hind legs, because of her preferring to lie
and sit down always on the same side and, lately, because of
her sparing of the left hind leg during going down some stairs,
we decided to take Wyn to hips pre-score check already at the
age of 8 months; so we can put bad thoughts away. But, unfortunately,
the x-ray showed that Wyn has a severe left hip dysplasia :-(.
After first shock and great sadness, the sadness which still
didn't go away, Sara thought about it and decided to give Wyn
to an old family friend who lives in our street. Because of
Wyn’s dysplasia, Sara could never be happy and relaxed
while doing sports and run with her. She would always worry
is it too much exercise for Wyn, is she running normally, is
she in pain etc. In our family most of our quality time with
dogs we do through trainings, competitions and dog sports, so
Sara estimated that her little Wyn will have happier and fulfilling
life as a pet in a family where she will be the only dog and
the only little princes in the house.
I personally think that a big role in Sara’s decision
played the fact that she already has one dog with hip dysplasia,
her Cap, with whom, although he barely showed any signs of dysplasia
through his working career, she always struggled about how much
she should train with him, what is too much etc. and I think
that it would be really unfair to Sara if she’d need to
go through all this again.
