Elizabeth - the PROBLEM with pointing out a specific dog in any pedigree is that it starts a HOLY WAR - because people's dog HAVE that dog in their pedigrees and they love their dogs....
Some dogs are prepotent and some just fill a space in a pedigree.....dogs like Fero via Troll and Timmy....Troll via Aly and Yoshey....Mink via Crok and Lewis..Timmy via Nick...These dogs were prepotent and qualities carry down through generations...AND, at least one of these dogs is going to be in probably over half the dogs' pedigrees owned by posters here....make a less than admirable statement by NAME - and the uproar begins....
In this pedigree, I know the owner of the dam of one well known male....they got a beautiful V rated male from her, one to drool over, but his temperament is not what I would use in breeding, and the male in the pedigree therefore gets his temperament and resulting reputation from both sides. I have talked to people who bought pups from the dog, thought about breeding to the dog etc. So with that dog and a combination on the dam's side, I would be wary of having a happy social dog....it is a risk not a given, and depends on your acceptance of that risk.
When I KNOW a dog is severely human aggressive, or nervy, or dog aggressive or produces bad elbows or back problems and has passed it on to a large percentage of his pups - and there are 2 or more of those dogs in a pedigree or the litter is line bred on one of these dogs...then I am wary and will urge caution. I have known of some litters of two very very nice dogs who just did not "click"....going way back, before I ever bred a litter, there was a breeder who bred to a top competition male....Almost EVERY pup in the litter was PTS by 2 for hip/elbow issues. The female had had other litters with no issues, as had the male....the breeding was repeated and the breeder kept every pup to x-ray at 6 months old, and again, PTS most of the litter. I was a friend of someone with a pup from the first litter who had borderline hips and Gr2 elbows. I had seen a few of the littermates disappear off the grid....this was back in the days of dog.rec type lists, pre Yahoo groups and forums....so I know that those pedigrees do not mix! (disclaimer - example only - those dogs are NOT in this pedigree!)
