Whats your thoughts ??
I'm not talking about teacup or designer freakshows....just your common 'Mutt' if you get my drift.
Bronx (Mastiff X) is deadset bulletproof compared to Mojo (PB Bullmastiff), in every way...Bull at a gate compared to "can you open the gate for me please dad" stuff.
Health wise...zero issues with Bronx...didnt give a rats or blink a eye with castration. Mojo laps up attention even after a heartworm needle !!
Scooby (RIP), was a Ridgy cross, ate cheap kibble , kicked parvoviruses arse when he was 3 months old and lived a healthy life till 14.
I hear it often, vets included that refer to Xbreeds been 'tougher' dogs.
I realise bad breeders breed dodgy PB dogs but i'm thinking more along the lines of a typical well breed dog vs a typical pound puppy mutt.
The Bali dogs i saw recently would have to be some of the toughest dogs i've met.....living of scraps and little love...yet breed like rabbits and battle on.
So far from my 'limited compared to some here, dog ownership' .....my moneys on the mutts been the the tougher dogs.
