Just a bit bummed

I own a stud for my breeders program, she breeds Goldens and Lab/Golden crosses with versatile “jack of all trades” tempers and drives. my boy is a Golden SDiT and sport prospect, who’s about to be one, and his genetic panel just came back, he’s a carrier for canine ichthyosis, which we weren’t incredibly surprised by, as his Dam is also a carrier (his Sire is clear) but it’s definitely a disappointment! We are still going to move forward with health screening and keep him intact (which we were going to be doing till 18+ months anyway) but it does mean the bitch they had their eye on is out of the picture, as she is also a carrier.

But at the end of the day, this is why we do all the health testing.
