Is a pup with white spotting on it the sign of bad breeding? When I was talking to the breeder who has the puppy I'm getting tomorrow, he told me he had another puppy that was solid black with a white diamond and white toes. The sire is solid black and the bitch is solid white. I have done a little research on the white spotting gene, but can't find any information as to whether it reflects bad breeding? Should I not get the puppy I had planned on from this guy?
