says in its summary " . We found that mixed breed dogs and purebred dogs potentially suffer from many of the same inherited disorders, and that around two in five dogs carried at least one of the conditions that we screened for. A dog carrying an inherited disorder is not a “bad dog”–but we humans responsible for breeding selections do need to make sustainable decisions avoiding inbreeding, i.e. mating of dogs that are close relatives. The disease prevalence information we generated during this study is made available online (www.mybreeddata.com), as a free tool for breed and kennel clubs, breeders, as well as the veterinary and scientific community."
