DNA Collection with Genetic Technologies

Michelle Nimmo of Fanuilos White Shepherds has recently become an authorised DNA collector with Genetic Technologies. Michelle will be able to collect DNA for profiling, confirming parentage and disease analysis, the DNA from ANKC registered dogs will be sent to Genetic Technologies for inclusion with the ANKC DNA scheme. She will also be able to collect samples for the White Shepherd community at shows and other events. Fanuilos White Shepherds is a strong believer in collecting all the health information available on our dogs, both the breeding/showing stock and puppies placed in pet homes. This ensures we can improve our breeding program by allowing us to carefully select breeding pairs to avoid known genetic diseases.

We would encourage all breeders of White Shepherds to test their breeding stock and puppies for the benefit of our breed.
