Kind of like a used car salesman that knows nothing of cars and he crosses a volkswagon with a 4x4 chevy truck and then brags your gonna get the size of the truck with the great gas mileage of the bug or a bug that can climb mountains..

It sounds like Brooklyn needs to be in his crate any time you're not actively engaged in walking him, training him, grooming him or playing with him. When he comes in from outside he should go straight to the crate. For now, till he gets used to th...

Right, and yes I was being silly, but you're sidestepping the larger point. That many of our breeds are kind of recent, or at least that their history and recipe is recorded and known. Like I said, twice,

Cassie, hang in there. Not everyone has the nerves of steel to get through a whelping, but if you make it though this one you'll be in a good position to support others on the web if they write in asking advice. From what you wrote, you've already ...

Obviously, our beliefs are influenced by our own experience and observations. Just because my own lead me to different conclusions than yours doesn't me...

I wasn't just talking about dogs I've owned, but dogs owned by neighbors, friends, relatives, co-workers and other acquaintances. I've never owned a mix myself, though I'd probably go that way next time. And I'd look first at the Pound.

Now, you take two dogs of two different breeds, and whelp a litter. Knowing how genetics works - why would ANYONE claim OR believe that breeding two breeds WITH health problems would ELIMINATE those problems?

Cinemaboxers, when...

Hybrid vigor isn't a myth, but it's not a cure-all either. If a health problem is from a recessive gene, and the problem is not an issue in both breeds, their puppies should be free of that problem. At least in the first-generation breeding. In lat...

The min pin has no relation to the Doberman's origin. Try again, or better yet do some research.


Right, the miniature schnauzer ...
