Anyhow, we were chatting with someone that knew a little about doggies, and we were telling her about this cute BT we saw, and she informed us that they have a lot of health problems because they are the color they are since they've gotten the recessive genes of their parents. Is this true? The only thing I've read about color-related health problems are that BTs with more white on their heads, especially if they have blue eyes, tend to be deaf in the ear that is mostly white (or deaf in both ears if it is a lot of white.)
I was just curious what you all in this community could share on this. I'd really like a red BT, and I understand that with any dog, you just never know what kind of potential health problems will arise, but at the same time, I don't want to get a dog that is pretty much guaranteed to have problems either.
