The KGCA has published the following criteria for the listing of litters on the site. Posting on the KGCA list or Facebook site is agreement to having the rating posted with the litter. The rating system would be as simple as grades in school – A, B, C, D, or U. The KGCA would consider only those dogs with an “A” rating to be genuine Korthals griffons. However the club also realizes how scarce these dogs are and understands the need of a breeder to possibly use breeding stock with one outcross.
The KGCA does not endorse nor challenge any breeder’s decision but rather to educate breeders and the public considering a puppy. It is the intent to provide information to the purchasing public on available litters. Any litter posted on the website or Facebook will have the following rating applied after research of the pedigree. The genuine Korthals Griffon CANNOT be verified by a genetic test like KBKB. The lifelong dedication of Barbara Young has resulted in over 30,000 griffon pedigrees to now be available to anyone on line at no charge. This database goes all the way back to Korthals original stock that was kept in the breeding program.
“A” rating would be a litter with no genetic evidence of an outcross on either the sire or dam’s pedigree.
“B” rating would be a litter where there is one outcross on either side within a 10-generation pedigree.
“C” rating would be a litter where there is either more than one outcross on one side or there is one outcross on both sides.
“D” rating would be a litter with multiple incidences of the outcross on both sides.
“U” rating would be a litter where there is insufficient pedigree information
All litters must be posted with full sire and dam information and any available health clearances.
