It says on their site their dogs are now 7th or 8th generation of their own breeding/lines, so they are not breeding with the intent of preserving the types you have listed. I would not call them...

We can't tell from here. CALL a vet and ask. Often you can speak with a vet tech or a vet and describe what is happening. They will decide whether you need to come out.

Nice picture! I guess I'm used to the sporty heelers I see in agility and flyball. 50+lbs would be like a tank! I've never met one with a frame that could support that size/weight, but often sport...
