I just heard about a new hybrid- GoldenIrish, Its a Purebred Golden Retriever and a purebred Irish Setter. I saw it on line and saw picks , does anyone know any breeders of this hybrid or any more information about the hybrid .
This is not a new breed. You are getting hybridization mixed up with pure old fashioned mixing of 2 breeds of dog. A hybrid it does not make. To achieve a true hybrid, you must mate animals with similar genetics, like the lion and the tiger, or the horse and the zebra. People are crossing dogs, and coming up with all kinds of different mixtures, and giving them fancy handles, when in fact they are just a cross bred animal.They are also charging exhorbitant amounts for their cute 'new breeds'. You will not find a respectable breeder who intentionally breeds the Golden with the Irish Setter.
you must of misread , I SAID THEY HAVE BEEN BREEDING GOLDENS ALONE-PUREBRED FOR 15 YEARS AND SELLING , and theY are AKC . And THEY ALSO HAVE BEEN BREEDING IRISH SETTERS FOR 15 YEARS -PUREBRED ALONE, AND ARE ALSO ARE akc , JUST 2 YEARS AGO THEY STARTED TO BREED A GOLDEN RETRIEVER WITH A IRISH SETTER- THATS THE NEW GOLDEN IRISH. IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME THAT THERE IS SUCH A BREED THEN-
cezcal...the mix of a Golden Retriever, and an Irish setter is a mutt. A good old loveable mutt. Do you mind me asking how much they are charging for these puppies? Don't get me wrong, I would no doubt fall in love with the dog. It's the dishonesty displayed by the so-called breeder that makes me angry. They are portraying a cross bed dog as a wonderful new breed. Usually it takes years and years to produce a new breed. You certainly cannot do it in two. I just read the lovely website, and read the most hilarious part of the whole thing. They breed multi generation crosses..and they know exactly what they will get for offspring? Give me a break.
That's $699.00 Canadian, which is a lot of money. I can't help but think how the shelters could make use of part of that money, and that you may run into health problems down the road. However, each to his own. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink......
