    HaHa! Maybe...

    Pretty is as pretty does... A white spot by any other name is still nothing if the dog is good.

    Not bred much, but he does have offspring.
    You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough.

    The purpose of life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave with a well-preserved body, but rather to slide in sideways, body completely used up, drink in hand, yelling and screaming, Woo Hoo what a ride!

    My observations of various breeding programs, most have UK field pedigrees. No big deal....larger issues to worry about.

    Is an NFC famous enough? NFC Abes Ebony and Ivory ? I heard he did-
    Im not trying to post false info- I believe this was true- and fwiw- I bred to a son of his, who has produced white marks (not just my litter) as well.
    The pups in my litter ,two had white on their chests and some had bolo spots on the feet. Couldnt be happier with my girl- no white chest but has some bolo on both front feet backs

    FC-AFC River Oaks Way-Da-Go Rocky threw blazes and white spots on chests. I owned a dog sired by Rocky, and also bred to Rocky and a couple of pups had blazes. FC-AFC Overland Express is another that I recall..

    To the OP, Why don't you just raise those spotted pups and see how they come along? If they are outstanding in all other respects, successful in whatever venue you run, healthy and sound, make the decision then! You don't just choose Mama dogs by pedigree alone right? They have to bring lots of other stuff to the table. I think we know that white spots don't stop them from excelling.
