    The other forum is having trouble with law suits at the moment so they're a bit hypersensitive.

    The thing about a defamation suit - is that "the truth will set you free" but it still costs a pile of money to present it.

    Thanks for sharing your story Villain and I'm very sorry to hear about it and that your breeder doesn't care

    I have removed the reference to Molly's pedigree name after Hyacinth's comment, I don't want the forum to get in trouble.

    Default Dog Health

    Dog health problems like these can be very serious, and its a shame if breeders aren't interested in health issues in their pups.
    Email is a great tool for communicating about these things as it keeps a record of who sent what.
    I suggest you send a copy of the vets reports and any research you know of to the breeder so its in black and white. They may respond emotionally but hopefully they will read more and maybe next time someone contacts them they will be more informed and receptive.

    Of course some people are so aggressive BECAUSE they know they are breeding diseased pets: and lets face it a huge proportion of pets of all breeds have serious genetic problems, whether its heart murmurs, luxating patellas, cherry eye, hip & elbow dysplasia etc etc etc.

    Thanks CairnsVet for your reply

    The breeder has received copies of the first 2 heart ultrasounds and I also went with her to her vet for a second opinion. I also sent her links to research on SAS. One of Molly's brothers is now advertised as a Stud Dog along with his father (throught another breeder) and this other breeder is advertising my breeder's litter on her website. How much worse can this get, seriously.

    It's a fact that some people just don't care, they would rather bury their head in the sand and continue breeding for profit with no concern for the welfare of the pups they are producing.

    This is where our ANKC system stinks, in some countries such defects HAVE to be reported, also what a pedigreed registered dog dies from must be reported.
    Not here, this fosters this arrogant attitude that has to come to an end to help us to regain a good reputation as registered breeders.
    So sorry for your poor dog, maybe it could not have been helped, but others could possibly have been prevented from being born with the same thing.

    I completely understand that things can go wrong, and if my breeder had shown any sort of remorse at having produced a pup with a serious heart condition, then I probably wouldn't be posting here now.

    I love my dog, and she was my family the day I brought her home at 7 weeks of age.

    I will never give up on any dog I have, no matter what, and I wish my breeder was as devoted to dogs as I am.

    If it was just a one in thousands thing, true it happens, and no point in culling otherwise sound dogs, however because these things do not have to be reported there is no way of knowing if your dog is a one off or if there are others out there, too many breeders do not care, they lie and hide the truth, to hoped your dog's breeders are not like that.
    Do your vets know if it is a commonly carried form of the fault or very rare?
