    Wow, couldn't let this thread go. Believe it or not, I don't read every post or thread for that matter, on this forum. As well and unlike some, I don't play sheep and follow the leader or pander to the popular view at the time. I am an independant thinker and so while I might agree with a person in one thread, it doesn't mean I will agree with them in other threads.

    I will now add a few comments, although I have to admit to only have reading bout 5 pages.... and backwards at that.

    There are ridiculous notions sprouted by both parties when it comes to the battle between xbred and pure bred dogs. There are healthy pure bred dogs and there are unhealthy purebred dogs. If the breeders of some breeds do not lift their game, there will be a lot less healthy purebred dogs as time goes on. There are issues in the purebred dog world regardless of who wants to accept and acknowledge that.

    There is more chance of an owner at least knowing what the future health is of a purebred pup. There is more reliability on the nature and personality of the dog as well. There is also certainly definite knowledge on exactly what the pups will look like and grow like.

    Xbred dogs have their place in our society as well. I believe that they are currently elevated to ludicrous high levels in this present day though. There is a much higher risk of having a dog with behavioural and health issues in cross bred dogs simply due to the nature of how they are bred and the lack of knowledge and the breeding practices in general.

    I believe that the notion that 'all' cross bred dogs are unhealthy to be illogical, the same as I believe the notion that all cross bred dog breeders do it for the money or are unloving or cruel dog owners is equally illogical and wrong. In the same vein, I do not think that all pure bred dog breeders breed healthy dogs, breed to better the breed or treat their dogs as they should. There are good and bad in both worlds, and both worlds have a place in our current society.

    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.
