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!!!
