If you look on Pawpeds you can see how far the pedigrees go back. Unfortunately we think that all the breeders who reconstructed the breed after the wars are probably now dead so no one to ask.

This video is a real gem. Thank you for posting Shirley! I'm curious how far we are from his recommendations at the end. Do we have the worldwide pedigree (does Pawpeds include all dogs)? Have we identified "orphans" whose parents are unknown, beyond those dogs used in the re-founding? If we have those two in place, who are our low Mean Kinship dogs?

No Angela unfortunately Pawpeds doesn't include all dogs, if anyone wants to include theirs they can contact Gary Andrews or Ellen Adam and ask to be added.
