Re: Is "Head Crank" Hereditary?

Sounds like chances are good that a pup could inherit it if one of the parents does it (the extreme crank). They are probably just as good that they wouldn't if the other parent doesn't. Sounds like a role of the dice. Obviously, if both parents did it, the chances would be much greater.
