PEDIGREES - What do the #'s mean LGD?
I am going through different pedigrees as this really helps me to acclimate to the breed and shore up ideas, and I find them fascinating.
I notice that in the Havanese Gallery there is a number to top right hand of the screen LGD. Can someone explain what this % figure signifies?
I understand COI, at least a basic understanding and concerns about loss of genetic diversity and how that can have negative implications for health and vigor in a breed.
I would also love any input on what breeders of Havanese feel about the significance of COI numbers for producing healthy dogs, while still maintaining a certain consistency of traits and health.
Don't mean to be too technical, or overly scientific, but would really appreciate learning more.
Thanks so much!
