My friend Carrie and I with Carrie doing all the work are the breeders of the Meagles the research breeding that resulted in our Meagles and the discovery of the marker for PRA. it is a Dominant gene no now we have a blood test to determine if your dog has PRA or not so we will never have to have that in our Breed again if Breeders are deligent. Many thanks to the MCOA the generosity of our Club members and all the hard work of the PRA Comittees also.
