No problem…..

Yesterday’s “Cat Amongst The Pigeons” certainly was; the suggestion that a low co-efficient of inbreeding most certainly isn’t the panacea that some devotees advocate caused quite a bit of emailing, and not just from Glen of Imaal Terrier people! It wasn’t an easy piece to read if not quite up to speed on a couple of things so, with pleasure, a link is given to hopefully help out before re-reading it again.

    New dwarfism mutation identified in dogs

    Researchers have identified a mutation in ITGA10 gene, causing chondrodysplasia in two dog breeds, the Norwegian Elkhound and the Karelian Bear Dog. The research revealed a new chondrodysplasia gene in dogs, and a candidate gene for human chondrodysplasias. The finding has implications on bone biology as well as canine health. A genetic test can now be used to identify mutation carriers in the two affected dog breeds.
