|Those who are against breeding hybrid dogs obviously have never heard of hybrid vigor or don’t know enough about it to open their mouths.
How so? I have two mutts, both of which have had their good share of health problems. My husband's aunt also just had to put their Goldendoodle down at the age of 9, kidney problems, and long issues with intestinal and digestive issues. They were heartbroken, she was a very nice dog. So much for that "hybrid vigor" though....
Hybrid vigor can improve the performance of many animals. That means, you get a better hunting, herding, agility, etc. dog when you cross breeds.
Huh?! How so? How does cross-breeding magically create better drive??
Trust me, purebreds are far, far from perfect.
No one said they were.
In fact, many breeders of hybrid dogs find that F1 (first generation) hybrids make the best mothers.
Wow, what?? Where are you getting this from???
It's also no secret that hybrids outlive their purebred counterparts by many years.
Um...LOL. See above.
When you breed a Labrador Retriever to a Labrador Retriever, you are doubling your chance of puppies with potential health problems associated with the Labrador Retriever breed.
Um, so introducing a different purebred with its own set of issues is...better...?
I always laugh at people who claim that breeding two different purebreds will result in the worst of both breeds! This is just not the case.
Of course it can't always be the case, but how can you claim it can NEVER be the case? Of course that can happen. You make no sense.
Dogs from genetically diverse parents are going to have stronger immune systems. This helps in withstanding infections, parasites, viruses, autoimmune diseases, and allergies.
Based on what.
Sorry, you make all these bizarre claims but have nothing to back it up with. You think people against "hybrids" are laughable, but frankly, your counter-argument is hilariously laughable. Look, people can buy whatever they want, but I don't think they should be duped into all these bizarre magical claims. I think purpose-bred mutts should be health tested and so on just like purebreds should be, and if someone really really wants a Goldenweinerschnauzerdoodlebug, that's their call, but to walk around and say things like mixing breeds auto-magically creates better drives, more focus, automatic better health, better moms (?!?! Sorry, but I seriously LOL'ed at that one), magically takes only the best genes from each of its parents, and other claims is nothing more than silly nonsense.
