We choose the SCA and registry to use because of their high standards. There are many other registries that we could of used but NONE of them require any type of testing of the adults. They just require the breeder to pay to register the litter and the puppy parents pay to register the puppy. Most registries even allow you to line breed or inter-breed. The SCA dose NOT allow such things to happen in the puppies and parents they register.
The Shorkie Club Of America requires ALL adults in your breeding program to be genetically tested So when you adopt a shorkie from a member of Shorkie Club OF America you know you are getting the BEST genetically sound Shorkie in the world...
The Shorkie Club of America is the only KNOWN shorkie group dedicated to the ethical development and establishment of this mixed breed. We have spent many years, time and money developing a registry specifically for shorkie puppies only.
