This breed and cardio are synonymous. We are trying to tell you that its NOT as easy as you seem to think, and that eliminating carrier x carrier and affected breedings will do more harm than good, and we would likely see more deaths from cardio, cancer, cvi, and who knows what.
One of the Doberman rescuers in my area just posted that out of 300 dogs that they have spayed and neutered so far, only one had any kind of bleeding issue - and he didn't die.
We already have a small gene pool, and we shouldn't be shrinking it further by spaying and neutering all the vWD affected and carrier dogs.
I have purchased two vWD affected dogs, and I knew that one of them was affected before I purchased her. Ethical breeders test their puppies before placement if there is a chance they will be affected so that the buyer can make the decision to purchase, or not.
