I didn't know about this forum when I got my Tink and didn't know about GPRA. All I knew was to make sure my pup was KC registered. I paid 550 thinking as it was KC I had done enough. I now know I was very ignorant of many facts not least the GPRA . As some of you know Tink has a liver shunt and I will never know if like in Yorkshire terriers this was inherited as my breeder hasn't done any background checking into her line and no doubt her dogs breeder didn't either so this condition could end up being as common as it is in the Yorkshie terrier breed. All because of people breeding pups without doing checks and the KC allowing them to be registered so fooling the general public into believing they have bought a well bred pup. Thank goodness for this forum and the knowledge it offers and the people who after finding the information have the resolve to use it and demand and will wait for their healthy well bred pup. I take my hat off to you . Well done xxxx
