Since you've all seen the pictures I've posted, you've seen some of John's dogs. The black girl in my avatar is one of his kids. As is my Honey.
John and I talk on a regular basis [multiple times in the last 48 hours and weekly], so it would be odd for him not to tell me anything about it. He also had no idea about this…
I never insinuated any BYB were interested in the lines. But since the dog is not tested, I can state for a fact, that would be a HUGE deterrent to John.
John will not consider anything that is not tested as Fanconi Clear...
as all dogs in his house are Fanconi Clear.
so I am guessing that your breeder [whom I do know and respect] may have been given that impression by others.
I asked about testing because I wondered if you did it. Since I knew the litter hadn't been tested prior to placement, I wondered his status. He is a pretty puppy. You did a pretty good job stacking him too!
