Indie was in a CanAm accident at around 10 months old. Thankfully, she survived the accident. She healed amazingly well. Her front legs, belly and hip took the brunt of the hit. She didn't pass her OFA elbow score at 2 years old. There was some joint trauma from the accident. What I didn't know at the time is; I could have taken sent the OFA x-rays of the accident with an explanation. They would then factor in the cause of the trauma listed as DJD. At two years, its too late. Indie's family hip and elbow history is very clean. The accident occurred during her rapid growth period. I plan to continue to review her elbow history by taking more x-rays near her 3rd birthday.
About the name: Native to Utah mountains, Indian Paintbrush grows wild throughout the Wasatch ranges. Its one of the first to emerge as the winter snows recede. The upper part of Indian paintbrush resembles a brush covered with bright dyes. It was often used among various tribes of Native Americans, hence the name - Indian paintbrush. Indie's beautiful coat reminded me of this beautiful, native wild flower.
Indie has an incredible field and hunting heritage loaded with retrieving talent, titles and usages. Despite all that, she is very playful and a huge tease. She inherited a powerful build from her mother and athleticism from her father. She has a strong desire to retrieve, hunt and find. Loves the water and is very loyal. With a low COI and good health records we are expecting a lot from this young dog.
