    Myf - Sorry, you misunderstood. I was referring to the saying going a long way on this forum and used your issue in another thread as an example. Hope that makes more sense!

    As for your statement about the breeding section being for purebreds and not crossbreeds.. Where does it say that? And would it be okay for a byb to come post in here as long as they were breeding pures?

    I think we should focus on support and advice for members! All members!!!

    Hi mummy of 2, here's some food for thought. As you are a beginner I'll run you through the basics of breeding (not criticizing, this is just general info you'll find anywhere on the net)
    No, not everyone starts out as a Backyard Breeder. Good breeders start out by registering with the ANKC and getting a prefix for their kennel.
    Showing your dog is preferred, but that means your dog has to be purebred. I know showing your dog might seem pretentious or pointless, but with dogs you are trying to breed to a 'standard'
    Every dog has a set standard in how they should look. If there wasn't, all dogs would end up looking the same! Very confusing at the dog park
    People can be what is known as "kennel blind" meaning they think their dog is just the best thing since sliced bred and is beautiful, when in reality, it's not very good in terms of the breed standard. Showing your dog opens it up to a wider audience an dhelps show you the qualities and faults with your dog.

    Now, with health testing, in larger breeds you need to get what is called a "Hip Score" done. this shows the quality of the hip joints by giving them a numbered rating for each hip. 0:0 is the best rating you can get, but each breed has its own number which is acceptable... all breeds are different.

    When you mix breeds, you have no idea what the acceptable rating is, so hip scores are not as accurate.
    Hips are very important, as there are many problems a dog can get early or later in life if they are not good such as hip displaysia.

    I agree with myf, you really should ask your vet those questions. It's always better to talk face to face with someone than on the internet. All it takes is a typo from someone and you could end up with a dead dog or puppy. And no-one here (except for myf) would know more about animal health... trust her judgment.

    I hope that gives you a bit of insight into some of the answers here, and why backyard breeding and breeding mixed breeds is a very sensitive issue.

    There is also no designation in the title of the forum whether it is for crossbreed pet owners or breeders. It is up to the interpretation of all. People come looking for advice, not to be bagged out and preached at..that is ludicrous as in this instance. The bitch is about to give birth, the OP does not need a barrage of BYB accusations at this point but it is to be hoped she may become educated in the cons of BYB litters and may then decide to not do it again and desex her bitch. Nothing is achieved by berating someone.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Its not directly only for purebreds, but I don't think the forum as a whole encourages crossbreeding.
    IMO, no, a BYB would still get the same 'hammering', whether breeding X breeds or not.

    It has nothing to do with your dog being a crossbreed. it is because you are not a registered breeder. That is what people are trying to explain.

    People have tried to help...but you have not acknowledged their posts...

    Myf - this forum is VERY small in the grand scheme of forums and while the majority might not support breeding by non registared people others may not share this view. I think the key is respect for all views and opinions.

    Like others have said, the OP needs advice and support!
