Should the US Dalmatian club and AKC raise their bar to the level the Germans have, then they would have something to respond to my criticism of instead of pointless logical fallacies and personal attacks against me. I’d call it a discussion that you’ve managed to turn into an argument on your part, which is a shame because I just wanted to join in. In the case of the Dalmatian, the answer is NO. Research on rats found that albinos have more unmyelinated nerve fibers in the optic system compared to hooded rats (Lund, 1973). It is desire for purebred dogs of ANY kind that perpetuates the problems of that particular breed. Science. People were not purpose bred the way dogs are either. Baton Rouge, LA 70803 Yawn. Evidence for this comes from further findings in Dalmatians. Eg; It makes no sense to punish a dog for stealing, or vandalism, etc, the way we punish humans. If you don’t like Border Collie temperaments, fine, but if they are problematic, they are so because others have chosen those temperaments on purpose and justify them with their utility to those needs.

Cambridge Philos. I learned that I need to research more about what diet he needs and to be aware that he could get stones. If we take your suggestion that every Dal be bred to a LUA Dal, then the very next generation would all be LUA as one copy of the gene is enough. There are not particularly genetic (as in gene theory, more advanced allele analysis) involved. As far as AKC is concerned this has nothing to do with the health or welfare of the breed.

I remember even in the early 80’s there were a fairly decent number around of the Gelderlander that weren’t F1 crosses but today its like finding dry land in the Netherlands, almost none existent and far worse for the Groninger. The majority of breeders test with BAER before they are 8-weeks old. Opin. The only web searches that come up with aggressive and co are .com (usually US) domains instead of .de or Honestly it boils down to the genetics and the dog itself, we just lost our sheep dog mix, she was the best, she was mainly white and had blue eyes, but she was gentle had the perfect temperament and was the smartest dog I have ever had the honor of owning, but she developed a malignant tumor in the lining of her urethra: she was a mix of old English sheepdog and border collie, again it boiled down to her genetics, she was one years old.

Breeder attitude is important. Even then, the odds of there being a disease gene is very low and even lower that it will ever be homozygous and weighed against the fully saturated HUA, the moral choice is clear. The Cattanach paper talks about “patches” although it’s in the same section as his discussion on the eyes, so I’m not sure if he means a patch over both the eye and ear, just ear, etc. We’ve seen just how quickly you can return a breed to type even with a drastic outcross (Boxer x Corgi).

What I will say is that what happened with the DCA and the backcross dogs with the back door politics that AKC used to install them in the stud book has opened a pandoras box that will allow any crackpot on a mission to circumvent the parent club and the majority of each and every parent club to do what they feel is right for their breed.

It was a faulty statement because you pretty much said I was wrong to suggest all albino dobes are inbred. . Trust me if the Dalmatian was the way you described it, I would have changed the breed a long time ago. Outcrossing to known lines tested for relevant diseases has less risk of producing ‘disease’ than staying within your closed system where all dogs are homozygous for disease causing genes. There is that something I don’t know, spontaneous in much of their behaviour too which I think I honestly like a lot in this size package where it would be a nuisance with anything larger as I know myself after living with a pitbull.

And following that train of thought many people who have a dalmatian do not understand these dogs were bred to run along side carriages all day. White cats are often deaf, particularly if they have blue eyes (blue = lack of pigment). 400 $ and at the end of the day you would not know more than us Idiot’s that only test for one issue at the time but can at least be aware that the findings have a purpose and are accurate.

Domestication of the Norway rat and its implications for the study of genetics of man. A remarkable relationship was found between asymmetrical spotted areas of fur and the preferred direction of circling in Variant-Waddler mice (Cools, 1972a,b). It might be acceptable in the cases of some questionable colors if there were one parent with a dominant gene that would result in all pups having a healthy color/pattern and if this could be tracked, but that would be more important for a breed where the unhealthy color or pattern has become far too common. It is IMPORTANT to show these people that what they do is not moral. What’s that based on and why is it even important? It’s not a coincidence that a breed so shallowly defined would have a disease gene 100% saturated so soon after the breed was formed. Anim. Dykman, R. A., Murphee, 0. Nottebohm, F. (1977). Cats form ammonium acid urate stones: In “Handbook of Behavioral Neurobiology” (M. Gazzaniza, ed.). It DOES work. (1963).
