Shame the answer really wasn't worth waiting for. You haven't addressed my genuine questions at all.Good breeders breed away from those genetic problems. There is also the advent of DNA testing which has helped GSDs no end in the last few years.
Anyway people I know you will all be devastated but it Christmas Eve and I am off to have some quality time with my family. I really have spent too long on here the last few days. It's not good for my health. LOL
Merry Christmas all
