    DD, It seems that way more and more. But if you look back through the history of the breed there are many famous dogs out of untitled parents (at least on one side).

    But to answer your question (partially), yes those dogs had to have other attributes, including heritage to be in the breeding program to start with. Maybe some of them were really talented, but had injuries that curtailed their competitive career? Could be anything...
