The results thus far are very encouraging but the club would like to see all breeding dogs tested. The results show that Pins with healthy patellas have also been successful in the show ring, providing less justification to breed with untested dogs.

The test forms and a copy of the Putnam Test protocol (information for the veterinary surgeon) can be downloaded from the Miniature Pinscher Club website

Anyone, whether or not they are a member of the Miniature Pinscher Club can download a submission form and an instruction sheet. We can also include dogs tested outside of this system, as long as the form/certificate is signed by a practicing veterinary surgeon in the UK.

It would be great if we could have all our breeding stock tested under the scheme – apart from the health aspects, it also helps to put a clear gap between responsible breeders and the puppy farmers.
