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.
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 40,000 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
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
litters must be posted with full sire and dam information and
any available health clearances.
