What they are trying to educate you on is the health issues that are common to our breed. I have had 3 heart problem dogs in a row. I have also had some thyroid issues, but those weren't too bad and easily remedied with medication. If you have a heart problems you will have a lot of expense for that dog in the future and they might not live as long as others without the problem. That is what you are up against. I also realize people will do what they want to do regardless, but they are trying to warn you.
