Genetic Test Listing - AKC Canine Health Foundation

Tan Point/K Locus - VetGen - note that the KGCA does not recognize that a dog tested as KBKB as a genuine Korthals Griffon. ALL genuine Korthals Griffons are indeed KBKB but not all KBKB tested dogs are genuine Korthals Griffon according to the KGCA. Also the genetic tests for breed are not relevant because the breed baseline was contaminated with the hybrid testing before the realization of where the outcross occurred.
