How to read

| Can anybody give me a good resource on how to read a pedigree?|
I just bought a puppy and I have information on her lineage from this site.

|HD-SV: HD a-normal (a1) - means Hip Displacia - sent to SV-Bundessiegerzuchtschau ( http://www.sv-bszs.de/) is the German -German Shepherd Dog organization and a-normal (a1) means the hips are normal with out any sign of displacia and the dog is recomanded for breeding.|
a2 - means fast normal - meaning the dog is good for breeding etc
a3 - still allowed for breeding but some breeders dont like to see an a3
Likewise ED stands for Elbow Displacia
OFA - stands for Orthopedic Foundation for Animals - who certifies the hips & elbows etc
KKL1 means - Breed Survery - Korung - where they test the dog for its abilities etc
Hope this helps.
All the best with your puppy. If you can post the link to your puppy's pedigree, someone may be able to let you know the details on possibly why the sire & dam were bred, to improve what, to continue whose bloodline and what are they famous for etc.
