The ISAA, its membership, and the Board of Directors understand that sometimes nature overcomes our best laid plans. The purpose of this page is to assist breeders who have had an accidental mating between two pedigreed Icelandic Sheepdogs that does not follow the ISAA breeding guidelines.
The first time a breeder has a litter that does not meet ISAA breeding guidelines, he/she will be given a “free pass”.¨If this first litter is brought into compliance by the time it is whelped (e.g. CERF test on the dam or sire or hip test on sire), it may be listed on the regular litters for sale page.
If the litter is not or cannot be brought into compliance by the time the litter is whelped (e. g. dogs too old or too young, dams having litters too close together, hip test for dam), it may be listed on this "does not meet" page. Breeders have an opportunity to list a litter on this page only one time.
The second time a breeder has a litter that does not meet ISAA breeding guidelines, a note will be added to the breeder listing. It will state that the breeder has had a litter/accidental mating that does not meet the ISIC/ISAA guidelines. After six months, the breeder may petition the BRCC to have the notation removed.
If we can be of further assistance, feel free to contact the ISAA Breeding Review and Compliance Committee (BRCC) at ISAABRCC@gmail.com.
