UMMMMMMMMMM........................I have been gone for a few days and I guess I really missed out on this 1. I can sorta figure out what is going on.............MinPin and MuttMmomma are the same person, but what happened to the posts from MinPin? It is hard to keep up since they have been edited to " - "
People should not buy "Puggles" and breeder's should not breed them! Why do we want to promote MIXED breed dogs? Pugs are the best all around breed for small sized dogs, look into buying one of those instead. Need any info on Pugs? I have been breeding them for years and I can help you! e-mail me at: Baypugskennel@yahoo.com .... Thank you!
That is the MOST ridiculous thing I have heard. People come on SHEESH, where do you think that the majority of the dog breeds we have nowadays came from. Someone started breeding different dogs together to come up with a certain type of dog. Doberman Pinscher for example. That was a dog that Louis Dobermann produced to be a fearless guard dog. He bred several dogs together to get this breed started. Yes, some people breed dogs irresponsibly. But not all breeders are bad. That is why they call it dog breeding. We are breeding for the best in dogs, striving to make the best.
I agree BluHusky with you, but a lot of people breeding these 'puggles' and other kinds of mixed breeds are only in it for the money. At the pet store where I got Ace they've been selling puggles for $600 and $700. Of course, if people are willing to pay that much they're going to continue to sell them for that much. But I think thats why most people are against it. Mostly, it's bad breeders only doing it for the money.
"where do you think that the majority of the dog breeds we have nowadays came from. Someone started breeding different dogs together to come up with a certain type of dog" i think the difference between that and the mutts of today is that breeders seem to not be doing this in an attempt to come up with a new breed. they are continuously breeding two pure-bred dogs to make a crossbreed, not selectively breeding crossbreeds to come up with a type of dog that can mate together and create puppies that are predictably similar to both parents and each other.
Yes but I think if they are going to start to try to create a breed people need to stop breeding first generations and go to second. THey need to make a breed standard like cocker spaniels mixed with min.poo or toy. poo not either and they shouldn't combine 2 dogs names like bichon-poo yorkie-poo you can tell those are mixed because they have to entirely different dog breeds in their names Also I'm sure if people bred cockapoos to cockapoos set a breed standard and everything they would be recognized because cockapoos have been around for ages
emma if you would have paid attention to everything that I said, then you would have seen that I stated that " Yes, some people breed dogs irresponsibly. But not all breeders are bad. That is why they call it dog breeding. We are breeding for the best in dogs, striving to make the best. " There are some problems that purebed dogs have that need to be bred out of them, thus coming up with a new breed of dog. But responsible breeders do this.
While that may be the intent of a seldom few, on the whole, that does not seem to be people’s agenda. There are hundreds of different cross-breeds out there, most of which are first generation- the puppies are being sold to pet owners and not used as breeding stock to create a perfect breed. As for the there being genetic problems in current breeds: some breeders will cross breed a litter of pups with a breed that is similar to theirs in order to help ‘purify’ the lines. Those pups are used as breeding stock and several generations after that initial cross, the animals are considered pure-bred and their lines are hopefully stronger. cocapoos do not bother me that much because they seem to have a large enough base of people who are dedicated to creating a new breed, not a bunch of hybrids. as for all the others, if there was a group of people out there who wanted to responsibly make one new breed to fill the nice of 'perfect family pet' i think that would be different. but there seem to be people make a hundred different something-a-poos, etc.
