Disease
Musladin-Lueke Syndrome (MLS) manifests with extensive fibrosis of the skin and joints. As puppies, affected dogs fail to thrive. By one year of age the disease stabilizes whereby arthrosis, stiffness, short outer digits as well as a typical flat head shape with higher ear set and slanted eyes are characteristic for this disease. Affected dogs walk upright on their front feed in what resembles a ballerina stance. Additionally, they show a “happy” temperament.
