I breed Austrailian Sheps. Recently I had to have my male DNA tested to be able to keep breeding him. If the male is bred more than 3 times it is required. Everything came back fine. Then I got a letter stating that the father of my dog is not his father. Meaning that his registration is on hold till the father can be decided. I have 3 dogs that came from the same blood line, that now do not have registration.

Everyone that purchased a dog from me also received a letter concerning this, because their papers are now on hold also. The person we purchased the dog from says that the dog it could have been is now dead so there is no testing possible. My business is ruined. I just wondered if anyone else has had this happen? Or any advice on what to do. Thank you,
Renee

What qualities in your dog, besides the father's bloodlines, were you breeding to continue?
What are your dog's accomplishements? Herding? Agility titles? Obedience? Conformation?

The mother has 3 champions in her line. My dog is not in any competitions, just a beautiful well mannered dog. We do not advertise them as being champions or anything like that. Its just that now I can not sell registered dogs.

There are worse things. The world doesn't really need more Aussies at the moment.

The sun is shining, it's clear and crisp, and all in all it's turning out to be a very good day ('cept for the dead ATV battery, but it's charging and will be fine).

Sounds to me like you need to stop breeding.

I know that I have to stop breeding, that is the problem. And I am worried about people calling me thinking that I did something wrong. Renee

That's actually more of a feature.
And I am worried about people calling me thinking that I did something wrong.

That's one of the risks you run when you breed animals.
