    He probably found some other "quick money" plan to start. People were starting to call him out on peddling genetically defective dogs off Casper. I had a buddy that has seen several pups off him with seriously f'd up bites and mouths. He's never worked a dog in his life anyhow. He was lucky enough to buy a few nice dogs from some people that know how to work them and he bred them and sold their offspring. I'm not saying Phil is a bad guy but he wasn't in it for the dogs in my opinion. He did take good care of his animals.

    <CENTER>I believe that Phil Eppinette has tried to obscure the issue of his stud dog Casper
    carrying a serious genetic palate defect for parrot mouth since I have a daughter of his with it.
    I can be contacted by email for additional scientific evidence and further information for anyone interested.


    I would urge anyone considering buying a pup from Phil Eppinette to NOT buy any dogs from him,
    as I consider him to be disreputable...


    He refuses to acknowledge that
    many of Casper's offspring he is selling are now also carrying this serious genetic defect.</CENTER>

    To help define whether the malocclusion is genetic in origin, interdigitation of the premolars is studied. In breeds that have medium and long muzzles, the premolars should meet in a saw-toothed fashion. For example, the tip of the lower third premolar should be positioned equally between the crowns of the upper third and fourth premolars. If the tip of one premolar points to the tip of another premolar, there may be a genetically induced malocclusion. This only holds true in those breeds that do not have shortened muzzles.
    Some genetic bite problems do not show up in each litter because they are recessively passed on. The goal of selective breeding is to mate one animal to another that has superior occlusion.


    Hope this helps explain it.

    I bought some good dogs from him( off Rajun Cajun) ,and I get my kennel supplies from him @ good prices. Everyone has their own opinions.

    I don't know if he's still in the dogs or not. I got a few nice ones from him. Last I heard he was getting rid of most of his dogs & opening a real nice pet supply store.

    I can't say anything bad about his dogs, save for the Casper thing. I heard about that but there's been several dogs who threw bad bites - or worse - & no one's making a big deal about that. Not that I condone it, but I find it unusual that people will make a big deal about Casper, but let others like Shorty Cowboy go unnoticed.

    PE meanwhile seems like a super nice guy up front but I have found out the hard way he is a bold-faced liar & possible paper hanger. At least that has been my experience. If anyone has any questions about my experiences, please PM for details.

    He still has dogs, but he sold a lot of them, and he is not breeding the ones he kept.
