The three you listed, PUGS, minature and toy poodles (standards can actually herd...believe it or not LOL), pekinese, chinese crested, chihuahua (of all types), and the AmBred shepherd :lol: (low-crawling and hiding out in a well concealed fox hole LOL -- just remember that I love my Andibelle people LOLOL).Andres Martin said:Do you consider any currently recognized dog breed, in its current general state, to be worthless?
My 3 picks are:
Al, Leerburg Kennels breeds imported dogs. I have an "AmBred" and an SV style. There is a BIG difference IMO, on structure and temperment, as well as working ability, of the dogs. It's not to say that a shepherd bred on American soil is worthless...there is a certain type of dog that wins AKC conformation shows and that's what we're talking about.Al Curbow said:I don't think any dog is worthless if the owners are happy with it, i guess it's all about what you're looking for in a dog. What's wrong with dogs bred in america? If you think that you can't breed good dogs here just cause it's american soil you're misinformed, one dog comes to mind and that dog would fit anybody in the worlds definition of a serious, stable dog, and he was bred right here in the USA. For instance, Leerburg kennels are a breeding kennel so i don't understand what you mean i guess....
Connie is gonna do some ferocious editing when she gets back. :twisted: Andres, you might just become an American GSD show person whether you want to or not.Andres Martin said:BTW, thanks for the reminder...I had forgotten about Pugs.
HEY! Andi doesn't have angulation or a wierd head. She just has no working ability, hip dysplasia, food aggression, zippo prey drive, and bat ears.susan tuck said:Al, the problem is american bred GSD's for the conformation SHOW RING. I guess I didn't say conformation in my previous post so maybe it wasn't clear. I have a problem with any breeder of any dogs that are bred soley for the conformation show ring because so many things become exagerated for the show ring, such as angulation, or wierd heads.
