I have attended plenty of dog shows, and as far as I know there is no minimum age you have to be to watch a show.

And why does me being 16 justify you to give me crap?

Rare breeds is what NKC recognizes? why do people insist on breeding the breeds and colors that the breed clubs try to eliminate? (I am not being mean or rude just wondering)

If the breeds are healthy, whats the problem?

Isn't it the same thing as creating new car styles, new recipes... variety is the spice of life?

They are not healthy,thats kinda the point. And the whole point of a dog show is supposed to be showing a standered.

Let me try to give you an example you can relate to Take pugs for example. One of the most ancient breeds on earth. They come in two colors, fawn and black. The problem is, is that now people think it's really cool to breed brindles and sell them as some sought after rarity They claim they are purebred and AKC registered. Problem is, is that there is not an option on AKC papers to register a pug as brindle, so they select fawn or black and call it good. The largest problem I have with this is when you go to make a new color, you have to cross breed with another breed. In this case it would be boston terriers or french bulldogs. When you do that, you are introducing a different breed which brings with it different traits, characteristics and health problems. Now, you are selling a dog as a purebred when it really isn't. Pretty soon you have pugs that don't look or act like pugs. When you love a breed, you want to see what makes that breed great preserved and protected. When people start inter-mixing, you loose what makes the pug special. If I wanted a boston or a frenchie, I would get one.

On another note, certain colors also bring along with them certain health risks.

Good points from both of you.

Definitely a bad thing to do if it brings any sort of health risks to the dogs.
