I purchased a dog from a Lady in Peyton Co. about 1yr ago.. The dog being just a year old has what the Vet calls EIC....The dog in Question is sired 2004 NFC DRAKE by a Lean Mac and Rita reynolds Bitch....After asking " Mrs Breeder'' about this .She said she would replace with another lab in a Year or 2 by another FC sired stud to her bitch whom is running trails right now....Mrs bREEDER also wants the dog back to examine it...Why Cant I just for a spay and get 2 vets opinions instead of having to fly the dog back to Colorado and spending even more money...What would you guys do out there?
Why send the dog so she can make a diag.? When the 2 vets can tell the same thing.....There was nothing ever covered in the guarantee about EIC just like 99% of them out there......But you can bet money my next purchase will have that in Bold writing....
Dont get me wrong I am pleased she has offered to replace the pup but I am really gun shy about the Whole thing right now..
SO I am faced with spend another 300 to fly this dog back or Just call it a loss?

Russ I havent ever written anything in my contract about EIC just as the Breeder I purchased from did not ....I am not a breeder by anymeans
I have had a (meaning 1) in the last 4 yrs...Not a breeder by anymeans...I just wanted a pup out of the sire I chose and knew my bitch very well....Anyway....If one pup comes down with this Disease I will honor the choice of what ever the peoples want..Money or another dog....Im real gun shy right now about taking another pup....Due to the fact as not enough is know @ this point......

Personally, I think you could have asked your question without naming names; Peoples or Dogs.
I agree 100%

Let's wait until more is known about this disorder, especially how it is transmitted before such bold statements are made, i.e. EIC FROM 2004 NFC x LEAN MAC.
Buddy the facts speak for them selves "It is what it is"
Thats the bloodline and EIC is from that somewhere.. you cant take it out on context....I just wanted everyone out there to know that this condition did occur with this particular breeding....What dog EIC is from remains to be seen.....But I will also let all know that I have been contacted by several individuals that Know the breeder personally and knows what kind of person she is to deal with.....This is not her first confrontation with an issue such as this...I have several names and #s of people whom have come out of the wood work and contacted me on this very post to let me know there particular problems with the "Breeder"
I in no way lay Fault on EIC to Drake or Lean Mac but just wanted people to be aware that this did happen and what bloodlines maybe carry the heinous disease....
