So I emailed that ACA Breeders Kennel yesterday. I was fairly aggressive, not expecting a reply, buuuuuut, I got one anyway.
I own a Jackmaltese and a Border Kelpie, would you like to breed them too? What about GreatChi's? Or Cavalier King Charles Shepherd? Or American Staffordshire Bichons?
Just because you mix too breeds, doesn't make them legit. It makes you a backyard breeder, only in it for the money, trying to make a mutt sound more desirable. Im disgusted.
And they replied with.
Thank you for your email, Myf. I am always willing to talk to people to explain why we breed the dogs we do and also inform them that every breed began as a cross breed, and have been changed over the years to look "more suitable" for the show ring. We are also doing that but to create pets that are more suitable by temperament, size and coats for family pets, not by looks. The success of this is shown by the fact our breeds are rarely seen in shelters. I realise you are only 22, but I hope you will learn to keep an open mind and only make judgements when you know all the facts. You own 2 dogs you obviously love - why do you cynically think other people don't love theirs? Statistics show less than 7% of dogs come from pet stores, all are microchipped and traceable.
I have so much to say but can't word it correct. Help me?
