Reading Pedigree

Just got Jameson's pedigree in the mail today - one thing that popped out at me was:

His sire's maternal grandfather
His dam's fraternal grandfather

Are the same

Does this make sense ?? and is this bad ??? I have to admit it doesn't sound good

that depends on who that shared grandfather is and the rest of the pedigree.
That dog could add positive qualities and consolidate those in the future progeny (as in your dog) , or provide cause for worry , physical or temperamental / behavioural .

after doing some research (still going) - the great grandfathers seems to be a very popular sire.

I will keep digging, and keep you posted !!

Thank you

You would get more informed responses if you posted his pedigree You may not have seen them yet but some people even have their dog's pedigree in there signature so that it appears with every post. When I posted a thread asking for help with my dog's pedigree there was someone who not only helped me learn more of his origins but was also able to show me that my dog's, dam's information had been put into the data base incorrectly so that i found out he in fact had a completely different grand dam. So if you post his pedigree you might be surprised at what you learn beyond just his line breeding. Of coarse if you don't feel comfortable sharing that information than you can keep it to PM only (I would recommend sending it to a member named Cliff). I wish I could help you more with his pedigree but I am still learning how to decipher lineage information

I inboxed Cliff to see if he would help me out

I didn't think people posted Pedigrees

People post pedigrees all the time. You can post it openly if you prefer.

How is your dog ? Are you happy with him?
That is about where you need to be - meaning you have to deal with the dog that you have right there in front of you , as if he were a rescue with unknown ancestry.
