The next 2 LUA litters in the UK will be born around November. 2 litter will be bred at Tyrodal Dalmatians. The sires will be LUA's...Stocklore Wizard of the Forrest and Tyrodal Back To The Future. LUA Dalmatian breeding is all about the 'Total' dog, taking control of health for the future generations of Dalmatians not just the showring! Health is paramount, ALL sires and dams have health certificates for....Hip and Elbow scoring, BAER Hearing testing and some DNA testing This makes early enquiries advisable. ALL LUA litters have waiting lists!! AND they are alway's worth 'waiting' for! Most breeders get excited about their show results, we get excited about our health results as much as our show results!

Elizabeth Sampson LUA litter are ALL bilateral hearing! Thats ALL 3 UK litters and the litter in France! So maybe our clubs will suport us now??! Their objection was... "US Dalmatians exhibit a prevalence for bilateral congenital sensoneural deafness of 8%, (for which there is no possible treatment), compared with 5.3% for the UK population It is irresponsible and inappropriate to address a manageable disease of low incidence, by introducing backcross dogs with an unmanageable condition (bilateral deafness) of much higher prevalence." The clubs issued this statement to the KC, even though they were informed that the LUA project NEVER used blue eyed dogs or uni's in their breeding program!!!
