Ok.. I'm not into mixed breeds BUT... I love these... PitterPat
 
The Pitterpat! A mix between a pit bull or staffy bully and a patterdale terrier. I bet these dogs are little terrorists! It says they range from 15 to 30lbs. What a fantastic little dog! I don't know anything about patterdale terriers other than they are full of drive like a pit bull. And I don't normally agree with mixing breeds.. but I think this would be the first time I say this... I would pay for one of these mutts. LOL

Mix breeds
 
I don't share most people's disdain of mix breeds. Perhaps pit mixes I might understand, yet at that same time I do have to acknowledge some great dogs I've known that were pit mixes. I am not the slightest bit "purebred addicted."

For example:
The Doberman - Purebred ... yes?

The Doberman was originally developed around 1890 by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann.

Dobermann served in the dangerous role of local tax collector, and ran the Apolda dog pound. With access to dogs of many breeds, he aimed to create a breed that would be ideal for protecting him during his collections, which took him through many bandit-infested areas. He set out to breed a new type of dog that, in his opinion, would be the perfect combination of strength, loyalty, intelligence, and ferocity. Later, Otto Goeller and Philip Gruening continued to develop the breed to become the dog that is seen today.

The breed is believed to have been created from several different breeds of dogs that had the characteristics that Dobermann was looking for, including the German Pinscher, the Beauceron, the Rottweiler, the Thuringian Sylvan Dog, the Greyhound, the Great Dane, the Weimaraner, the German Shorthaired Pointer, the Manchester Terrier and the Old German Shepherd Dog ( being the largest contributor more than the other breeds).


... now I am not a great canine historian, but I doubt the term "urebred "was used back then, perhaps I am wrong.

If you have knowledge of canines and breeding ( which I am guessing Mr. Dobermann had, being that he ran a dog pound in a part of Europe known to have a historical lineage of many great dogs), mixing of breeds might prove to create a fine breed of dog with certain specialty characteristics.

In my opinion, aDoberman is one of the finest dogs for estate protection as well as personal protection for an individual out in the field.

My point being, what is considered a mix today might be recognized in the future as a "purebred" with great characteristics if done right. Also, if you go back far enough into canine history and the migration and civilization of man and his dogs, can you not argue that all dogs are in fact "loosely" mixed, or simply there are no PURE breeds? ( this argument though can reach no final conclusion ).

...I'm rambling.

Here is a photo of " supposedly" a doberman/pit. Aesthetically it looks pleasing to me, but I can not speak for an individual dog ( or mix breed's) temperament by looking at a photo. That being said, I do not promote mixing pits with Dobies.

PS ...and above all, I do not agree with tax collectors being spared a whoopin' because of their canines. Too bad Mr. Dobermann didnt have a Sloth sanctuary.

Mixing breeds happens, either accidental or on purpose, it is what it is. I have a mix that I love more than any thing in the whole world, he was from a line of byb. People in my town breed dogs just cause they look pretty or want to see what the mix will look like. It sucks that people are so irresponsible and just breed cause they want a pup. My mom actually told me a while ago she was disapointed that I got Dosia fixed. She was like why would you do that he's beautiful he could have had some nice puppies, Ugh. There's nothing we can do it will keep happening over and over.
Not all mixes are bad or ugly though take my Marley for example he is a four way mix. His mom was pit x sharpie and his dad was rott x queensland. Just a mess of breeds but he is one of the smartest loyal loving dogs I've ever had and I wouldn't trade him for any pure bread dog in the world. He's actually quite the looker for a mixed up pup IMO. Here's my boy Marley

Don't get me wrong... I had nothing against mixed breed dogs themselves. I am against people creating "designer dogs" Purposely mixing two dogs for the only reason of creating a dog for "looks" and then charging and absurd amount of money and calling them "purebred" LOL

I grew up with nothing BUT mutt's. :) I have only had one papered dog in my whole life and he was from a puppy mill and he only lived to be 6 til some mysterious disease made him so sick my parents had him put down. But all of our mutts came from the shelter, the street or a "free puppy" sign of accidental breeding. And they were all the females were spayed. The 2 males were not fixed but never were bred. I'm not sure what my moms purpose in keeping them intact was...

If mixed for a purpose... and not sold out to the general public until that purpose is established... would probably be ok. If someone wants to create a new breed I think it should be done with a lot of thought, and other people who share the passion to create a new breed, with the same idea of what the dog should be so they can breed for that specific reasons. But just breeding a yorkie to a poodle.. for the purpose of " cute dogs" (ugly IMO) lol I don't see any reason for it.

The Pitterpat... from what I read on that site.. has been bred for weight pull and working reasons. It even says should not be a simple house pet. Poop... I might want to rethink wanting one. LOL

I realy hate the designer stuff too every jerk on earth wants to make their own breed now it's kinda pathetic. My buddy J does truck driving and he's also a tattoo artist, he had some guy in Nevada want to trade him a dog for a tat. He said they were pure breed and worth a ton of money. When he when to look at them he just laughed the were mixes. He was calling them Sharpits. LMAO real rare mutts. He was like no thanks and went on his way. People do this way to much. Ruining good breeds sigh what is the world coming to. :)

Every time you breed a designer mutt... a shelter dog loses his life.

Hmm... 1,000 dollars for a designer mutt.... or... 100 dollars for a mutt who has all his shots and a spay neuter... and all the love you could want!

I just don't like hardly any small dog breeds... and I thought it would be awesome to have a pit bull type dog that only weighed 20lbs!! I would love to have a staffordshire bull terrier.. they only weigh in the 30's usually I think.

Chinadog 02-14-2010 11:28 PM

yep. I dont like small breeds too much. Bigger dogs are more predictable. But I would def do that type of dog or if I ever wanted a mixed pit I want it with boston. Of course I would never go out searching for a designer mutt but I think that type of mix would be really game and a dang good hunter for small game!

9361 02-14-2010 11:32 PM

I like Bostons but due to the smashed face.. I wouldn't own one. We have really hot summers in Oklahoma and I'd be too worried about the poor thing over heating.. same reason I wouldn't have a boxer although I love that breed too.

Jack Russells are cool little dogs, might have one of them sometime.

Chinadog 02-14-2010 11:47 PM

both are way to yappy for me. I love all dogs but my preference is 35lbs and up otherwise its not labeled as a dog. I live in the next state over next to you and we get really hot down here too and no beach :( so smashed face dogs are not ideal for me either. I LOVE boxers, my friend has an old man boxer and im always bending down to kiss him on his smushy lips.
