Primary Lens Luxation (PLL)
KnD has a goal. Well, we have many goals when it comes to these great little animals we call "Rat Terriers", but this goal I am talking about is a PLL clear kennel. Like I said though, it's not our only goal. We won't give up good qualities only to boast that we have all PLL clear yard. This genetic issue can be controlled with a simple one time DNA test. If we test and breed wisely we can keep our good qualities and breed away from this issue, but we won't do it at the expense of losing good qualities. PLL can be VERY well managed and easily. I actually worry a bit when I see breeders boasting about their PLL Kennels. It is just too early at this point and time to throw away all breeding dogs based only on this ONE manageable issue. If a breeder culls all his imperfect dogs, there will be needless sacrifices, eliminating valuable assets in the genepool. As a breed, Rat Terriers are not ready to limit their diversity.
