    Hello Gary. I was thinking that do you think it would be possible if there was a article written about how MD started out and how it came to be today ? That would be cool. Maybe you could right about it in the future? Because that would be cool. Of course if you don't want to I am fine with that.

We actually subscribe to this philosophy and do not over vaccinate our dogs. They also have a mostly raw diet.

Not really. All we know is written the profile. I added your reference to the city.

Hello eivohan thank you for the very nice explanation of this breed. For the most part it matches what we have in our articles section. I especially enjoyed the brief history description of the 80's. Thank you.
