As you can see one of our bitches has been diagnosed with PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) so we have made her and her mother Bonebreakers Girasole available for the research that is going on at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Her siblings and offspring has given blood and we hope that they will find the gene or genes that cause PRA in lagotto soon. Right now the Swedish Lagotto Club has started a fundraiser to help the university. Please donate, every penny counts!
