I am new to this forum but am still so sad as my rescue lab Kelly died in July. She was 2 weeks shy of her 8th birthday. She died from cirrohosis of the liver which the vets said was genetic. It was found after an ultrasound. She was purebred and from Tennessee as breeder went out of business (do I was told by rescue). She was register with American Continental Club. I am not thinking I would get another lab from a breeder in Massachussets since she is my second rescue dog that died young.
Sorry for typos I meant to say I am considering a breeder in Massachussets for my next dog which will be a lab
