I Haven't read that anywhere swamp, a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. That said I haven't even seen assa infer that this guy in the ad is seeking to start a new breed. He's simply stating that the labs and chessies that are considered "pure" started their lineage in exactly the same fashion as this litter of mutts, a point the smuggles won't concede
John, if you are gonna start a new breed, you do not sell your first litter-you keep them as breed stock, and cull the ones that don't make the cut for what you are lookin for. You have to let the pups grow and develop to see what kind of potential they got. That is my only contention with Assa's line of reasoning.....
you keep the ones you want for BROOD stock and cull the rest(spay and neuter) is culling to people that cant sleep if they had to kill them.
Assa nor the guy who has been chastised in this thread said they were making new breed.
and us houndsmen we do a lot crosses for the purpose of hunting that 1st generation MUTT
i only bred if im needing some new pups or enough people have asked to get new pups. you uppity snobs would crap at the cost of good hounds!!!
Inda you feel its perfectly ok for your "friend" to cross breed but not the poor bastard that was made fun of in here. it makes no difference if the pups are sold or killed!!hypocrisy!!
It does make a difference if they are sold intact and not cut.
where are the laws stating when a breed is a breed???most my dogs are breeds but not AKC accepted. i am happy as hell about that too
most of you keep runniong off at the mouth about health. puredreed dogs have more toubles with health then cross breeds.i would never breed a dog that isint healhty. if my dogs started having two heads but there are an absoluty a beast of a hunting dog, its getting bred.
the 1st wavy haired brown gyp i deem worthy to stand under my lab i will buy in a heart beat and never hesitate once about breeding them
but im a country boy not a dog snob even thou my dogs are in demand with out internet only by word of mouth
