31 – Not a Gene Pool…a Gene Puddle: Betty-Anne Stenmark on Dandie Dinmont Terriers

Mrs. Betty-Anne Stenmark

Mrs. Betty-Anne Stenmark wrote the book on Dandie Dinmont Terriers...literally.  Under the King's Mtn. kennel name, a long line of champions have been bred and an endangered breed preserved to this day.

We don't have a gene pool, we have a gene puddle.

Dandie Dinmont Terriers are a low-entry breed.  A situation that many of our breeds face today.  In Episode #31 of PureDogTalk.com, Mrs. Stenmark shares her wisdom and generous humor on the "Dandies".

    I would like to hear why Ms Stenmark avoided (didn’t mention) using the genetic DNA analysis. The dandies were the test breed for Optimal Selection. I spoke at length with Marion Couto who managed the data base and was impressed with the findings after the first generation. If you only look at F2 and not F3 and beyond, how do you know. Isn’t that worth looking at?
