JonVers breeding dogs are tested for prcd-PRA using OptiGen's patented DNA test. Our imports were tested by Genetic Technologies. All puppies currently produced by us are guaranteed for life against losing their vision to prcd-PRA.
The only labs authorized and approved by the OFA to test for prcd-PRA in Australian Cattle Dogs are OptiGen, Genetic Technologies and Paw Print Genetics. Results by any laboratory not partnered with OptiGen should be considered unreliable and inconclusive.

We only breed and own pattern A (clear) and B (carrier) dogs. We don't own any C (affected) dogs. We don't do B to B breeding, this breeding can create pattern C pups which could lose their eyesight sometime in their lifetime. We strongly recommend not adopting an untested pup from any B to B or B to C breeding, the pup could be a C. We also believe it's unethical to breed B to B or B to C due to the fact the breeding may produce C pups that could lose their eyesight sometime in their lifetime. We recommend not adopting any pups from a C to C breeding since all pups will be affected. Always ask the breeder what the prcd-PRA testing results are for the parents and what facility did the testing before considering an adoption and make sure you get a copy of that paperwork before adoption is complete.
We have one extremely nice boy currently available from our new stunning imported sire. He is an Obligate prcd-PRA A (clear) and PLL A or B by parentage. If you are looking for a really nice Cattle Dog, you don't want to miss out on this boy!
All puppies are microchipped, dewormed and vaccinated.
