Dog Pure Breed Crossing

It is not recommendable to go after one of those “pure breed crossings” that are found sometimes, although some can be quite cute. Amongst that cuteness we have seen the cockinesse, pekpoodle, terripoodle. These dogs come in every color of the involved breeds, the Cocker, Poodle and Pekinese come in many colors! However, every problem inherent to each breed can appear in these crossed dogs.

When purchasing a dog, the salesman should not pressure you. Usually the breeder questions interested people about the puppy’s habitat. For breeds larger than the toy and Terrier, the breeder can demand it has a fenced garden.  Others can ask to meet the entire family and about the household schedules. Some dogs can’t stay at home alone all day long. Many times the breeder can demand that the puppy is trained to remain in a cage, and will not sell unless a contract is signed to that effect. The best breeders will insist that the puppy is returned immediately if you decide you can’t keep it. Protective societies are a good way to get a breed dog at a reasonable price. They are typical in England and quite common in the US, but not in the rest of the countries. It is more difficult to find a puppy in these places, since in most cases they are abandoned specimens. This website intends to inform the owner of a determined breed about every known problem that can arise in each of them. The salesman should be able to inform you about your dog’s health. For example, in the US, a puppy’s parents can have an OFA certificate for hip dysplasia. The OFA is the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, and offers the possibility for owners to perform a check up for their dogs to detect hereditary bone malformations. Besides hip dysplasia, radiologists evaluate the risk for craniomandibular osteopathy (CMO), osteochondritis dissecans (OCD), anconeal disunity process, Legg-Perthes disease and the fragmented coronoid process, the PennHIP is another kind of registry. It is essential that your puppy’s parents are controlled by one of these organisms. It is only desirable that the OFA and similar registrations keep seriousness and honesty in their data; money and politics can only blind us, and our dogs are the ones that suffer in the long run. 
 
Be aware that the radiologic certificate is not a mere dog show score. In the most serious cases, hip dysplasia is a crippling condition, which prevents the dog from running, and many times suffer terrible pain when moving. It is more reasonable that the affected specimens are sterilized so this disastrous disease is transmitted to future generations.
 
American Staffordshire Terrier breeders are very selective when placing their puppies. These dogs require that an experienced and responsible owner.
