    SCARS Dogs

    You seem to contradict yourself with your last 2 paragraphs. In the last one you describe and very loving (albeit OTT) owner who will love their oodle till the day it dies.????
    Not really - she will keep it and love it and dote on it and then bitch and whinge when it turns feral like her other dog.

    Plenty of swf at renbury atm - x breds too
    Renbury Farm Shelter

    Check this out too - all the dogs at rspca's around Australia - you tell me what comes up most

    I've seen true working dogs - kelpies - in the city - not dogs who still have their working instinct - but dogs bred specifically for working - it is a disaster every time. People simply can't keep with the dogs needs no matter how much they do with it.

A good pet should have those instincts as well as the abilty to live within a family group.

    I love the GSD because it is specifically bred to do all those things - guard, hunt and live with people
    Uhummm...puppy drowning/shooting...sounds like a fun past time hobby...sigh

    Occy, what would you be biting at?

    It does seem pointless calling this website "Australian Purebreed and Crossbreed dog forum" It seems in Occy's opinion crossbreeds are only bred for the pound. God help anyone who's buys a dog for companionship.
    Well said Peter. I think companionship is much more important than some ribbon or rosette or whatever. I couldn't care less how someone else judges Jenna, I love her and will care for her till the day she dies, which is more than can be said for those breeders out there who dispose of their dogs when they are no longer able to breed.

    Well thats why most dogs bred for working are kept in the rural towns. I have a kelpie/ border collie from a rural property, and she is the best dog I've ever had, sure she is energetic, barks alot, and chases birds etc, but she's not destructive, and she is happy, she only needs mental stimulation, and a walk. It's not hard to keep a working dog, if you love it enough to devote your time to it.
    Ask a Border Collie to jump and it'd say, "how high?", ask a Kelpie and he'll ask, "why?"

    That's alright

    Look...the desexing procedure now for dogs is quite "easy". Sumo had a couple of stitches...didn't even touch them.

    Just consider the chance of testicular cancer further down the track.

    just one reason why cross bred dogs are just as good of dogs as purebreds.



    I wouldn't trade her for the world.

    OF COURSE it is!!!!!

    But breeding from healthy, sound and correct looking stock is VERY important! Cross breeding 2nd, 3rd or 4th generation "mutts" makes it IMPOSSIBLE to backtrack ANY type of health and temperament problems........and you end up with loads of dogs/puppies in the pound/shelter with behavioural issues and health issues! THAT is what responsible ethical breeders spend a lot of their time and money on to eliminate and BYB/Puppy mills don't!

    Of course you wouldn't...but can you back track health and temperament issues in her if you need to.....to determine whether she would have a genetic disorder or not...further down the track (touch wood she won't)?
