His pup shares no relation to my dogs.
I told him long ago, that he only need find a local hog hunter that has dogs that have survived in woods, the last hundred generations or so.
For those dogs to live long enough to breed, really means something. With such dogs, he will not have to worry about genetic flaws, because the weak were culled in the woods. Wild hogs are better at detecting bad hips, than an x-ray. If a dog does not move cleanly, he is soon gone.
I also warned him to not expect fancy papers with such a pup. People that really use dogs, rarely waste time with such crap. They have hog dogs that are still breathing.
I have no idea if he has papers or not, but he can always use them to wipe his backside. The ONLY reason my dog is registered, is because a Lady that wanted to breed to him, payed for them, and jumped through all of the hoops that the paper peddlers demanded of her.
I warned him to stay away from people who catch hogs in a pen, as proof. Catching a hog that has already been caught before, in the safety of a sterile pen, is a load of crap.
I told him to find dogs that rolled their dice in the woods. Those dogs will never quit you no matter what, simply because they are still breathing. Quitters were culled, the first time they did it.
There are thousands and thousands of folks out there, that still use dogs for real. Working pups are easy to find, IF you are looking in the right place.
