We are not God..... We only have so much control over the dogs we breed and produce. We can only do so much through health testing and even then there is no guarantee that a puppy won't still get a genetic defect. This is why we have health guarantees to help cover those situations.

Genetics are a tricky thing, you have recessive genes that don't show themselves for several generations and then pop up out of no where.

If you come across a breeder who claims they don't have any health issues or they have never had to replace a puppy......RUN!!!
