BISS GCH Ch.Skyline's Eliminator

"Eddie"


For those of you who don't know, Eddie is almost completely blind due to a genetic disorder called progressive retinal atrophy "PRA". Eddie and his sister were both diagnosed with this eye disease at 4 years old. It was an unfortunate discovery, but one that has brought education and science to move ahead to hopefully eradicate this blinding disease. We now have a DNA marker for this disease in GS. All breeders should be testing their breeding stock for this gene now. Eddie's parents are Ch. Rus Astershvarc Zone of Fire ( who is still currently being used at stud) and my bitch, Ch. Rusters's Capture the Momentumm. At Skyline we have eliminated breeding anything that is affected by this terrible disease or had the gene to be a carrier. This is not a big problem as of yet in our breed, so my feeling as well as one of the founders of CERF, that there is no reason to be breeding these carriers. We can eliminate at least one genetic disorder in our breed and save this happening to anyone of our Giant Schnauzers from losing their eyesight. This has been heartbreaking to watch our Eddie gradually losing his eyesight. He has incredible charisma as most of you can see through his pictures and it warms our hearts to share our pictures of Eddie with you and see your loving responses
