No. There is no way for your dog to be affected. If you breed that dog to a dog who does not have a copy for that gene.. NONE of their puppies will be affected.

If your pup tested positive for 2 copies of a recessive gene.. then yes worry. The problem is many traits are polygenetic meaning its an interplay of multiple genes. So its not always as cut and dry as mendelian models. BUT that makes it less likely to have affected pups.
If my dog came back with a recessive gene,he wouldn't be bred!.

Every single dog, human, cow, and linden tree is laden with an assortment of unfortunate recessive genes. So please don't breed any dogs.

Why? You would choose to throw out more genetic material and make the gene pool even smaller? (assuming your dog was a steller dog in every other way)

For what reason would you not breed?

I think the inability to use mostly proper punctuation is some how genetically linked to the inability to listen and learn.

Jus' sayin'

This makes sense, since it means they weren't listening or learning when their poor teachers were attempting to teach them punctuation. Unless you are referring to me, in which case you are mean.

I wouldn't breed that one if I were you. You don't want to pass that on.

I'm going to STRONGLY suggest that, although there's a great deal of very good info in this thread - which I personally will make use of, Red - I think it will be better served to discuss it in a clean thread with clean motives, by those who are knowledgeable and those who have honest questions.

Good job to those of you who've kept this civil and informative, have done an excellent bit of work posting valid info and haven't risen to any bait.
