Danemom-I also asked this question in yet another thread. I believe the reason she doesn't answer is because the answer is-she does NO health testing. Although, I think one time, she mentioned that it was nobody's business what she does. Which means the same thing-NO health testing.
I had the same question as danemom and catlover. I'm not a breeder I have bred on my purebred poodle with a purebred poodle with the help of a poodle kennel. My mother wanted an offspring from her and I've heard it was good for preventing cancer.Plus I was so exited on having pups :) I did do all health testing I even paid for the males health testing. And both dogs have been to the ring with good (not the best) but good evaluations.
Molly if you as you call yourself are a breeder please tell us which testing has been done on your dogs? And where do you get studs for your females? Who lends out thier male for mixed breeding or do you own them all? And in that case how much are you inbreeding?
Why does Molly come around just long enough to say you can't find a puggle on petfinder in Ontario, but STILL can't answer what health testing she does? Do they speak a different language in Canada? Is it too complicated a question to answer?
Laura, hmmm what do you think. Do you guys speak English?
I think catlover is confusing the silence of a byb's guilty conscience, and the rest of Canada's population. What a huge insult to our Northern neighbors.
Molly Doll, seriously, you don't want to be "that girl". The ignorant one that refuses to educate herself on something she is passionate in her beliefs about. Posting ridiculous ignorant rants... only to look a fool and only in certain threads, about certain material.
I will make only one comment, why would you want to mix a cute breed like a Beagle with an ugly thing like a pug (never liked pugs) I never realized how much these "breeders actually charge for these mixs (not mutts, that words sounds to rude) I ran across a site where they bred golden retriever and poodle mixes and the were charging $800.00 for one puppy. I will admit there was a time i wanted a golden/poodle mix because i saw one at Petsmart, but i wouldn't pay $800.00 on a mix that is rediculas.
Thank-you that dog is not a puggle a puggle is a female purebreed beagle. Which mine are and all have been tested for epilepsy and hearing loss till the age of 2 every 4 months and once a year there after for hearing. If the Dog does not get epilepsy by age 2 they most likely won't but if symtoms arise they should be tested again. They also have X-rays ,bloodwork and eye testing done to check their hips, tyhroid and eyes Beagles are prone to a condition called KCS or "Dry eye" the test for that is the (STT). I haven had time to respond because I have been trying to make the new Beagle that my husband brought home feel welcome and adjust to are dogs as her owner was sending her to the pound since she was tainted by her letting another dog breed her he thinks it was a lab cross. We will know in about 2 weeks this dog was thrown out like trash because she was breed by something other then a purebreed beagle . I was just wondering how many of your dogs have ended up at the pound for the same reason or how many of you's asked our perfect breeders how many of there dogs have been disgarded for simaler reasons.
maybe in 20 or 30 years the puggle will be considered a purebreed you don't know. But I am sure a few of you will have a different tune.
" A current success story is the Silky Terrier which was developed in Australia around 1900 by crossing an Australian Terrier with a Yorkshire Terrier in order to obtain the best characteristics of both breeds. The Silky Terrier was recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1933 and has become a popular companion dog ranking 65th out of 154 dog breeds registered by the AKC in 2005. Not all characteristics of a new breed are desirable"
sorry an epilepsy test is sedateing the dog and guleing a number of wires to its head to look for unusal brain activeity. None of my dogs have epilepsy
