From Library Journal
Many would-be dog owners are unaware of the hidden hazards of buying a puppy. That adorable collie in the pet shop could grow up blind, or the beautiful springer spaniel with the impressive show pedigree may as an adult be prone to sudden fits of "rage," attacking without warning. Shook, whose heartbreaking experience with a beloved but dangerous Irish Terrier sparked the research for this book, offers important information for the general public on the crisis of hereditary problems in purebred dogs. He provides sound advice on researching a breed and tracking down a responsible breeder. Charts on breed susceptibility to genetic diseases such as hip dysplasia and autoimmune deficiencies are especially useful. This valuable little book should be handed to every patron seeking information on selecting a puppy.
