Me too, all my dogs have been mutts.Dee*Jay|1454517926|3986252 said:I'm a mutt lover!
I believe the shelters where The Demon and his crazy brother Oscar came from refer to them as "non-specific breeds."
I love their cute little faces!!! To wake up to that every day has to be such a joy!!kenny|1454522656|3986313 said:Purebred dogs are of course more genetically pure.
This ensures the desired appearance and increases the odds of the desired temperament.
But reduced genetic diversity makes them more likely, than mutts, to have health issues.
That's why I'd take a mutt over a purebred dog, and not just to avoid vet bills.
Something's borderline-creepy about eugenics and selective breeding.
Our dogs are mutts.
When we adopted them we found out mom was a Shi Tzu and dad was a Chihuahua.
I think they are beautiful but, more importantly, their personalities are ideal.
I'm not sure how much of that is genetic and how much is nurture.
I totally understand. My husband and I have had the "Now I understand cloning" talk a few times while giving love to our dogs.kenny|1454524889|3986340 said:
