|wyoung2153||So, excuse the ignorance (again ), does this mean that EPI is genetic then?|

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....

|Liesje||What are you looking to report? There is a GSD health database where you can enter your dog's info if you are looking for more transparency about health. You cannot have a breeder banned from breeding or registering dogs because they produce one unhealthy dog. Unfortunately the breed is so unhealthy at this point, if we all did that there would be no GSDs left. Hopefully they would take the diagnosis into consideration and avoid doing a repeat of that litter or very similar lines. Whether they owe you anything entirely depends on the initial contract.|

|onyx'girl||Looking back on your posts, it is fairly easy to see who the breeder is.|

You can't bash breeders on this board, even if it is warranted. The thread will be deleted.
Isn't there a website where you can report problems with breeders?

|GSDAK47||I think it would be warranted though, they are continuing to breed a dog that has had an EPI pup, refused to accept a dog of theirs has EPI , and then just returned to business as usual.|
