As you know, Elbow Dysplasia can be a heritable disease. Leaving aside your contractual beef with the breeder, you would do better by publicly naming the parents of your dog, and stating whether or not they had been x-rayed for ED. If so, what were their scores/grades and can they be verified? Do you know of any other cases of ED from the same breeder?
Do you have any documentation regarding your own dog's ED diagnosis?
Sorry for all the questions, but this is a very tragic disease that strikes after a puppy has been loved and nurtured by an owner which makes the contractual obligations between owner and breeder difficult to resolve. Prevention is by far the best approach to the disease.

anyone selling puppies to the general public are sooner or later going to get a Melody Stemple. Tends to make one become very cautious when dealing with strangers.

I take it you are the breeder. I thought in your first post that you were trying to be funny in a strange way.
Perhaps you could answer some of the pertinent questions that I put to MellMell who is clearly upset.

Several weeks later I decided that the puppy would not suit my needs and told Joan. THREE days later I had a certified check in my mailbox for my full refund...just as Joan promised. Again...NO written contract....just her word.
I also talked to several people who have gotten dogs from Joan and the had nothing but good things to say about Joan AND her dogs.
I would have no problem recommending VomRon German shepherds and Joan to anyone looking for a German Shepherd.
Honesty is a quality that is hard to find...Joan has it!
Just my two cents....

Just replace the dog and be done with it.

joanro, I don't respond to PMs, and I am frankly appalled at your accussations regarding the health of the OP, MellMell. What the hell does that have to do with the dog with ED? You have refused to name the parentage of the dog with ED. You have refused to state whether there have been other cases of ED in dogs you have bred. And I believe the health caims of your dogs as shown on your website are inadequate.

What do health clearances posted on a website have to do with this? If Joanro doesn't post all health clearances on her website, that makes them 'inadequate," Allan? If they're not posted online, does that make her dogs more prone to passing on problems? If they're American tested (OFA), can't anyone curious just look them up in the database? As I said, I don't know either party and haven't looked at the website in question- that last statement just struck me as patently odd.
