i will try my google skills at finding it, but apparently peer reviewed and yes does seem odd but it is taken as the ultimate repreive by breeders who want to promote the postition that the puppy buyer has the responsibility to keep the pup HD free and take some emphasis off the breeder because now it is scientifically proven that HD is environmental more or less, after all every GSD has the genetics for HD.
i am sure the actual context of the paper has been "expanded" on by breeders that want to promote this view. i will not link to the conversation as don't want to be seen as breeder bashing.
someone here must have read the article.
