But i assume that they had qualified people checking the dogs. I have always been led to beleive that Sweden was one of the best countries in the world for dogs and dog breeding. All dogs must he checked for HD prior to breeding etc and it has been like that for years. All results are made public also.
They are also a country that i am told has no banned breeds. All actions of a dog are the responsibility of the owners and their training and not the breed as it is in many other countries.
It would be interesting to know what the dogs actually looked like and how "ovedone" they actually were or IF they were.
