Unfortunately, Wildmountain Tollers Clever Cookie has been diagnosed with IRMD (Immunemediated Rheumatic Disease.
IRMD is an autoimmue disease which we sadly see in Tollers. We don't know the inhereritance for this disease. Research is being done and Cookie is now a part of this research. Hopefully, some time in the future we will know how this disease is inherited and will be able to avoid it.
Due to Cookie's ddiagnosis we have decided not to breed Vixen Again. It was an easy decision - but also very difficult as we think Vixen has so much to offer to the breed. However, autoimmune diseases is not something we would like to spread if we can avoid it.
We had so many good puppy buyers ready for the next litter. They have all been told that there will be no puppies and are looking for puppies from other breeders.We are also looking for a pup from another breeder. Hopefully, we will be lucky to get one sometime during 2017.
