Re: New outcrosses?

I'll accept two types of proof: 1) Peer reviewed scientific literature. 2) Proof that adding a dog without SA to a breed with severe SA has helped to fix the SA in the breed. I am in favor of outcrossing only to improve the breed as a whole. The goal with every single mating whether it is between tw...

Re: New outcrosses?

Why wouldn't you? It would be rare/a pain to find two unrelated pairs that don't suffer from it. The breed is littered with SA ranging from mild - severe. I'm not understanding why outcrossing to get genetic diversity and to help the breed with SA is an issue. Not all tams are like your girl were o...

Re: New outcrosses?

Why do we need to outcross to address SA? Out of our three girls, only Rhea has issues with SA and then only if we leave her outside of her crate. If we bed her down before we leave she knows that she's secure and snoozes until we get home. If there are already dogs within the breed who do not exhib...

Careful breeding over the next few generations should be able to largely breed out all of the genetic health disorders currently presen...

No car sickness so far. She took to the back of the Prius without any problems and even tried to play with Rhea and Sophie on the drive home from Hawthorne.

Rhea and Sophie are being playful and protective, while also teaching her proper behavior. They're watching her even more closely than we are.

I think that the owners should have the proper pedigrees for their dogs. This needs to be something that the entire TDR recognizes, acknowledges and addresses. The only way to prevent future controversy of this sort is to ensure that we all conduct business in an open and transparent way.
