|Here is is from his article,
"We haven’t been in this business long, and we've already been tested, when we discovered one of our younger dogs, Charcoal, had cryptorchidism -- meaning he had a retained testicle that did not fall into place. We had a choice: We could have had the retained testicle removed and tried to breed him, or we could have had him neutered.
But an unneutered dog with cryptorchidism has a very high risk of getting cancer. Moreover, it is a genetic flaw that could be passed on to his puppies.
I am certain there are plenty of breeders out there who would readily breed the dog. But we chose the most ethical path possible. Even though we had invested a significant amount of money and effort into Charcoal, we had him neutered."
And this is from their website,
"As you can see in the pictures, for our males we have one regular coat German Shepherd Dog, Blue, and one long haired German Shepherd Puppy, Charcoal. Because the long coat is a gene that is passed on, we know that Charcoal will have long haired German Shepherd Puppies and when Blue breeds with Lava, he should as well."
I have a hard time reading the website because of things like this "Believe us when we say that our female German Shepherd Dogs cannot wait for these boys to make them momma’s. They get really excited around these boys." so I don't know if they have posted on the site that they are down to one stud.
