Saarloos Wolfhound Cross

Post by Shamanfa » Fri May 17, 2013 11:30 pm

I've stumbled upon another advert on my area claiming to be offering Tamaskan puppies.

http://www.pets4homes.co.uk/classifieds ... rness.html

Of course they all look precious but I think the owner is mistaken :?

Definitely not Tamaskans. You can't just cross any breed like a Saarloos x German Shepherd with an Alaskan Malamute and call it a Tamaskan (even if those breeds are in the history of making the breed).The only way to get a Tamaskan litter is to cross a Tamaskan with a Tamaskan (or since the breed is new, an approved outcross with a Tamaskan, otherwise it is just a mix).

They are indeed not Tamaskan. I have send her a message that some cross just doesn't make a dog some breed and that when she sells them as like she can get some trouble with the new owners for selling dogs as a breed what they are not.
I mean I really like the looks of some and they are a nice cross but just not Tamaskan......I do believe some people just don't know that and have no bad intentions with it.....I think this is just a case of having no knowledge of that all....

Your right the add description is now "sarloos crossed with Alaskan malamute"
However in the full description it still says "the breed is called tamaskan"

It sucks to see those wrong individuals trying to cash in on the Tamaskan name.

Sorry to bump up this topic again though I was wondering shouldn't this be moved into the Scam and Warnings section?

Done. There is another post about this same scam in the Tamaskan Dog - Debate & Discussion Group on Facebook.
