Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) is devoted to lessening genetic diseases in animals by maintaining an open registry of animals that are certified clear of certain genetic disorders. You can search this database for ratings on dogs you’re interested in, especially recommended for looking up parents of a litter you’re looking at.
Canine Eye Registry Foundation (CERF) is devoted to lessening genetic eye problems in animals. This is a database you can search to see if a dog has been “CERFed” (certified free of eye problems presumed to be genetic in the breed) recently. All breeding dogs must have their eyes examined annually to be current. Do note that many people just have the eye exam completed but do not submit it to CERF for their registry. If a person says a dog has clear eyes and the exam was not submitted to CERF, ask to see the original eye exam form. Many breeders prefer to see the original eye exam form instead of just knowing a dog they’re interested in has a CERF number as a dog can have an eye problem (presumed non-genetic) that will be listed on this form, but will allow the dog to have a CERF number.
