What's the general feeling towards scatter bred pitbulls ,is it bad thing breeding multiple lines together?
A simple way to say it would be, some great animals came about from scatter breeding. When they became part of a program, they themselves ,were line bred to bring consistency for the dogs desirable traits.Its like horse racing, or rodeo horses.. a good race horse isnt gonna be a good cuttin horse or barrel horse... Having said that I know Okies and Hawaiians who have spliced the two got one real good one and the rest took a while to come out like the first. An outcross mustang is all kinds of scatterbred and is really only good for certain kind a function. Some people have taken that and bred entire lines of mtn ponies; which are no longer mustangs and sure not the crosses the used such as quarter horse or thoroughbred outcros....
You might find ONE scatterbred DOG that is better than any well pedigreed dog; but that is much more unlikely than finding consistancy in performance, intelligence, and function through a proven pedigreed worker. ...
Does that make sense?
:clap::goodpost:We have a thread on this you might want to check it out. Some people like it for different reasons. You should always have a goal in mind when breeding wether your inbreeding, out crossing, line breeding, scatter breeding, there should be some clear direction of what your trying to obtain or else your not do anything but producing curs.
