Dobes and Lamb (taurine)

I am currently without a Dobe (waiting for a puppy). I feed Raw diet and I am just doing some research for some clients (I am a trainer) that have a very skinney Dobe on Ziwipeak. I am reading that there is Lamb in Ziwipeak and I understand that Lamb can pull Taurine which is important for good heart health. Is there anyone on this site that has specific knowledge of this issue.

Considering lamb, meat in general, is considered a good source of Taurine, I'm not sure it makes sense that it would leach it out.

Animal meat is a good source of taurine. A variety of large animals. including birds and insects, all contain taurine. Mechanically deboned beef contains about 197 mg taurine per kilogram of dry weight. Beef liver contains about 2.359 g taurine per kilogram of dry weight. Lamb contains about 3.676 g taurine per kilogram of dry weight and chicken liver contains about 6.763 g taurine per kilogram of dry weight, according to a UC Davis study reported in the "Journal of Animal Physiology" in 2003.
