I have a 6 year old golden whose grandfather is from Kyon. Also, there are at least 2 dogs that come to off-leash play that are from Kyon. One is a 2 1/2 possibly 3 year old male and he just loves everybody, nice temperment, very light in colour and an all round big goof ball, he also has SAS, I believe the breeder gave them a 10 year guarantee on his heart. The other is a girl not quite a year old, she has a little more colour, well mannered, a little overweight--not the breeders fault, but a little skittish, I don't think the owners have socialized her very much. The owners of the little girl also have a male, never seen him, from Kyon who is 16 1/2 years old, and I believe they also had another Kyon male that lived to 15 years.
The boy with SAS is evidence that even if you "do everything right" there are no guarantees, but this breeder has stepped up, found the dog a unconditional loving home, with the resources to take care of him, and has extended their health guarantee (replacement puppy) on his heart to 10 years and made sure the buyers understood what they were getting by adopting him.
