Shikoku: how long till the inevitable?
I've been seeing a lot of talk regarding the Shikoku bloodlines. I don't know whether it's overexaggerated or not but it sounds like it won't be long until the breed doesn't have a sufficient genepool to be diverse and healthy enough? I'm curious, can some of you who have spoken about the subject (Brad, Shigs, etc.) let me know what we're looking at here? With 300 registrations a year in Japan alone, how long do you think we're looking at here? Or are there enough people taking steps to help re-invigorate the breed?
