Trinity, just for the record, I kinda like your idea. But don't think you are starting a new breed. To be responsible I would have all puppies neutered. I also agree with gunny that a line from non registered dogs is probably the best way to go for a good purpose built service dog. This is what I do with GSDs and have a beautiful line going after about ten years.
I seriously doubt the validity of the poster that started this subject. That they truely have a service organization that will accept a mixed breed dog is also in doubt.
Leader Dogs for the Blind want purebred, AKC registered dogs with the papers for their Leader Dog program. They can't even be purebreds without papers.
There are too many mixes in the shelters already that the service dog programs could chose from IF they accepted mixed breeds. Why on earth would they pay someone to intentionally breed mixes when they can adopt all the mixes they need from a shelter, plus save the dogs lives.
The original poster has too many loopholes in his/her story. The topping on the cake, so to speak, is when questioned about the service organization that will "buy" their dogs, all of a sudden that orgination wants to remain un-named. In my book, that translates to the original poster made up a big story and got caught up in it.
Please spend time doing something worthwhile, like volunteering at a high kill shelter, instead of talking about breeding mixed breed dogs and brining more troubles into the world.
I know what I am doing cause I am a 3rd generation breeder I just didn't know if I wanted to carry on the tradition. I grew up with a German x Doberman mix that was trained for service and for the blind and he was the best dog I have ever own and proves that purebreeds are not the best breeds.
All of ya'll need to do ya'lls own research. Also I never said I was starting a new breed so I don't even know where that came from. Also the organization didn't all of a sudden want to be nameless its always been that way. Ya'll need to learn a thing or 2 before giving the wrong anwser. I've always had dobermans and just because I haven't done any breeding it doesn't mean I don't know what I am doing. My mother and my grandmother are helping me through this. Also all my dogs have there papers. And no I am not the same member as Trinity without the 1. All of ya'll can get a life and get lost until ya'll do ya'll research on both sides.
you see trinty we do know a thing or two, you aren't the first person to come on this sight trying hand us a load of bull. Great you love mix breeds, you want to breed to dogs of a different breed together, good for you. you have this anonymous mystery organization, that wants to remain nameles (that is a strange marketing tactic) that will take your science experiment puppies. go for it, by the way Belgian Malinois are the best dogs ever!!!

Gunny and Obispo-you guys are just too funny! I also find it strange about this organization wishing to remain anoynomous. Around here, they have write ups in the paper about such dogs--where they came from, how they were trained, what they do. Guess we just don't have any of those "secret organizations with mystery dogs" around here.
Trinity1 is a VERY bad lier! If you are going to lie, you should at least stick to the story you made up in the first place.
Look at post #30 and #32...in 30 this person says that they are a third generation breeder and didn't know if they wanted to carry on the tradition...in 32 this person says just because I haven't bred dogs before doesn't mean I don't know anything.
My grandmother and mother have breed dogs and I am getting into it but dogs are not the only thing we breed. We also breed rats the only thing I haven't gotten into is dogs. But my family breeds dogs and rats. So don't call me a liar until you know the story.
I asked the question and then everyone started putting a bad name on mix breeds and I am just saying that mix breeds aren't bad. And the organization that wants the puppys that will be coming from my breeding don't want the problem that may come from a shelter dog. They want to be able to work with it and start training it from a young pup. I should know my other dog is a heeler mix I rescued from the pound. When you get a dog from the pound you don't know its backround and don't know how it got there most of the time. This organization just wants a dog that they know the backround of.
