Name: Winsdown Hydroxide Gender: male Color: brindle whelped: SEP-19-1972 Owner/Handler: Louise Vantrease Breeder: Louise Vantrease Pedigree:
UK CH Kentwood Ifan Winsdown Brymore Carbon Blue (blue merle) Brymore's Nosoldu Ap Sunny Winsdown Hydroxide UK CH Echium Of Hezelclose (tri) CH Glyceria Of Hezelclose (brindle) Dryas Of Hezelclose Reference/Remarks: This is the only photo found of a dog previously thought to be a double merle, but obviously this is not the case (his name indicates a lack of color, where other cardigans of the Winsdown lines were named accordingly). By his markings and pedigree he was likely a brindle merle, although eye witness accounts and the AKC registry say he may have just been a brindle. Unfortunately, this dog may have been dysplastic (unconfirmed) and had known carriers for PRA in his pedigree. Fortunately, modern descendants of this dog have not been found to carry the PRA gene.
