A little Desmond thing:
Desmond is still growing into his personality!
Des or Desi (pronounced Dez or Dez-zee)
Desmond is a unique Red Parti Cavapoo bred selectively for his near-Cavalier-like appearance! He is a cross between our prize Cavalier King Charles Spaniel stud, Cabello, and our adoring
F1 Cavapoo female, Daphne, which makes Desmond 75% Cavalier and 25% Poodle.
This makes him a unique F1B Cavapoo being that the Cavalier gene is more
dominant than that of the Poodle gene.
Desmond will still be capable of producing puppies with a curlier coat when he is paired with our Poodle females to make a ratio similar to that of the F1 Cavapoo. The resulting offspring will technically be 37.5% Cavalier and 62.5% Poodle when Desmond is bred to a Poodle
(we call these F2B Mimic Cavapoos), but they will still look similar to the F1 Cavapoo
even though there is a smidgen more Poodle in the ratio.
Desmond was born and raised here at Pleasant Meadows. He is a full son of Daphne and Cabello. His mother Daphne is one of the 5 daughters we were able to keep from our legendary Poodle stud Tobi (now retired), and his father Cabello is our prize
Cavalier who has 5 champions in his 5 generation AKC pedigree!
Desmond's heart health will be verified via an ECG monitor prior to breeding.
Heart: *pending fall 2020*
Patellas: Grade 0 / NORMAL
Blood Panel: *pending spring 2020*
PRA-prcd: Cleared by Parentage
Desmond's mom, Daphne, tested negative for PRA-prcd (Progressive Retinal Atrophy). And the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel does not carry for PRA-prcd and so it's unnecessary to test his father, Cabello. This means
that Desmond is PRA-prcd cleared by parentage and can be bred to any of our females
and have ZERO chance of PRA-prcd showing up in his puppies.
