I have no experience with breeders at all, as with EPI. I just can't see a breeder listening to a customer? client? whatever you call them, about which dogs to breed and why
If they're not researching and just breeding for money then they don't care about what they produce as much. If they ARE researching then they must've came to a conclusion that it's OK to breed these dogs.
I can't see how anything the OP does will make a difference.
However, I'm sorry he has to deal with EPI and all the other problems in his dog. I know how heartbreaking it is and I understand his desire to spare others from it.
