Hasn't been any discussion I'm aware of inside GUN, Griffon Underground Network, which is outside the workings of AKC. Affected dogs identified and breeding around them keeps the genes in their proper order. The dogs/pups that need testing are still being tested.....far as I know. There aren't many that fit the category.
