BOYS OF BARBICAN
WILL RECOGNIZE THEM EVEN IF YOU DON'T KNOW THEM"
gentlemen come from the heart of our genetic family. For us to
keep a male, and invest in his championship, he has to be a highly
superior dog since he is probably of no use in our breeding program.
All our stud dogs are of a make and shape which distinguishes
their family heritage-you will recognize them! They have full
genetic testing and a CHIC number.
Control of Canine Genetic Diseases, Dr. George A. Padgett, D.V.M.
states, "Everyone must remember, especially breeders, that all
dogs carry, on the average, four or five defective genes. So the
question is not whether your dog carries a defect, it does, we
know that. The important point is what defect it carries. If people
tell you their dogs have never produced a defect, their dogs have
probably produced only one litter; they don't follow up on their
puppies or; what is most likely the case, they are being less
than truthful." (pp.12-13) Because we are long-time breeders of
our family, we know what skeletons reside in our closet. We are
prepared to discuss our health issues with owners of bitches,
and we expect the same openness from them. Responsible breeders
do not knowingly breed weakness to weakness, and no one is well
served when breeders operate on a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" philosophy.
said, we offer these gentlemen for your consideration.
