If you had a female that had good top line pedigree so-so bottom line, excellent hip and elbows amazing temperament but only a IPO1 would you breed her?
This breed has been so damaged by irresponsible breeding I feel like at this point the only hope of saving it is to leave things in the hands of experts. Good hips are really low one the list of things that I am concerned with tbh. And while temperament is absolutely a concern, a dog on it's own really doesn't tell you much, because your girl could be an anomaly in the line. You need to know what's behind her and what you need to combine it with to hold or improve it. Longevity is becoming an issue, so something else that needs to be examined. The list just goes on. What conformation is needed to match hers, because they all have flaws, and what genetic issues does she have that may have to be worked around.I love the 2 letter answer LOL. It was something i was thinking i talked to a guy and he asked if i planned on breeding Luna i said as is no, first she isnt 2 yrs old, second i do not know her clearances, and third i do not know how she is or going to be. If i breed i want it to be a betterment to the breed. That being said with all of the temperament and hips issues i would have thought a excellent hip and elbow and amazing temperament would have at least got something other then a NO LOL.
O i was going to do that if i thought of breeding, breeding a dog to me isnt something to due lightly. I would want to make sure on a scale of 1 to 10 that my bitch is around a 8 before i thought of breeding. to be honest there is a 99.9% chance i will not breed because i do not know enough and in 2 years i do not think i will be ready either, but if i get into IPO and some of the old hands start asking me if i am going to breed or i should breed then i will come back to this forum and start spamming questions LOL.Find a mentor. Train your dog. Title your dog. Do the health testing. If you think your dog is breed worthy then make up your mind.
Along with these, with every dog I've done anything with, the deciding factor would be the right people or person telling me my dog should be bred.Find a mentor. Train your dog. Title your dog. Do the health testing. If you think your dog is breed worthy then make up your mind.
The IPO1 would have nothing to do with it good or bad....but if I had the right male that compliments this female with what you described, I see no reason not to.If you had a female that had good top line pedigree so-so bottom line, excellent hip and elbows amazing temperament but only a IPO1 would you breed her?
