As my friend wisely said, this kind of info is for people who are wise enough to understand the big picture. To quote Hansu, this is not a list of how bad our dogs are, but if you have a long experience, enough knowledge and honest discussion about the breed, there is always something. This one is my own thinking; if there is nothing, either information is not shared or there is not wide enough knowledge about the lines (and I mean several generations back and wide in the pedigree also).
At the same time this is also a list about the things these dogs don´t have. This is the info given to us which is free to share. If there is something more you would like to know more about our dogs and breeding, just ask us. We do have the best info and experience about them, and we are happy to share the experience we have.
