[quote=LeeRobinson]It has nothing to do with "mutts," but performance selection. Dogs that are bred and tested to work may not be perfect and flawless...but they are VASTLY superior in health and ability to dogs traditionally bred for show or non-working purposes.
You know why working dogs are more able and healthier??? Because if the dog has a problem it isn't excused but instead removed from the breeding stock. Show breeders however don't remove a dog that is unhealthy if it looks good. In fact, many breeds are often bred to look pathetic on purpose...take the Neapolitan Mastiff, Sharpea, or English Bulldog...distorted on purpose. And, it is no wonder those breeds top the list with problems.[/quote]
You do zero genetic testing. Harold, you have no idea what you have and what you don't simply because you have never tested any of it. If you want to hype the mutts you produce go ahead. Want to say that they are the best thing since sliced bread, fine. However, you cannot state that they are "healthier" than anything else simple because you do not know.
Again, where is the scientific proof? I know I am supposed to believe you and the other mutt wonderkids because you guys tell me so, that just doesn't fly with me.
