In the Barbet, there are many breeds.Just like any other breed. This should come as no surprise. What I have always done is try to make families as you know.There has to be a logic to me.
I am happy to share the info with you. It helps all of us move forward.Those who choose to ignore it or attack, so be it.
The Barbet which was also called Griffon for a long time has the origins it has.So do the Shepherd lines. What comes out is interesting to classify in a particular order. I'm doing nothing more than that.But, they have to be traced back to something...as far back as possible.This is done in all breeds.If some can't, that's their problem to justify their doings and objectibves and I can't speak for them, nor am I interested in doing it.
The following dogs are obviously of the same origin and you can't whether you like it or not, deny the facts.http://www.pawpeds.com/db/?a=p&id=784528&g=6&p=bar&date=iso&o=ajgrep

Look at who the father is.
Quite obviously, half of the litter will look like the father and half like the mother.
Regardless of the pedigres being wrong, the dogs look-alike. They have the same origins.
