The White Ring Neck Shepherd

This article was originally published in Stodghill's Animal Research Magazine on pages 12-13 of the Fall 1966 Edition.

In a letter from Stephenville, Texas this past April, Mrs. J. Dee Richards writes: "The female English Shepherd Dog that we got from you in the Fall of 1964 has another litter of puppies and one of them has a wide white ring neck. Is it possible for this to happen in the thoroughbred English Shepherd? As far as we know, there has never been a ring necked dog with her. The male is her pup sired by our "Lad" who was killed on the highway after she had the first litter. Will you please let me know your opinion of this."
