well - even if the female produced one puppy with EPI, it is not reason to totally take her out of the breeding pool....if everyone did this with every dog who produced an issue, there would be no dogs left to breed. I would be concerned if the breeding of the same male/female was repeated. Where puppy sales are a business more than anything, people may not be as concerned about a problem puppy.
I know someone with an EPI dog....only one of about 40 pups produced by the dam. I know 3 people with EPI pups from the same male and different females...but that male was used over and over and some breeders are using females from a son of his with no qualms.
Sorry - they should not treat you as if you did something wrong - but assuming the female should never be bred again is not reasonable either. Not overly surprised though, have heard similar issues before....
