Well...some Mals certainly count as sport mixes LOL

A Koolwhip would be perfect! I'd get one LOL I think Borderwhips are pretty neat too. I can't say sport mixes aren't appealing but at this point for me, they aren't practical either because of the rules about competing with mixes in AKC.

I am so in love with the BC temperament that I am scared to mix it with something else. If I could get a BC mind in a smaller package that would be perfect.

Contact Point BCs are often tiny.

I may take a B/W but I doubt I'd take any other sport mix.

A Sportmix is a buscuit, which comes in many different colors and "flavors", all of which are actually chicken



Sorry, couldn't resist, lol, we (regrettably) sell these where I work.
Mini-rant: How can you call it a cheese buscuit when there is literally NO cheese ingredients, fake or otherwise?!

And also, I do believe the first time the word Kool-Whip was uttered on this forum a PM was sent to Lindsey saying I wanted to be at the top of the list for one so nyeah!

UGH, I love Contact Point BCs... if I picked a breeder based only on wanting a "sport dog", it would be one of their puppies! Unbeatable. And they have some amazing colors too.

Kool-Whip is the greatest designer dog name EVER!!!

All of the sport mixes I've met in Flyball have been downright homely looking, and pretty obnoxious and spazzy. But I guess they're bred for spazziness. Not my thing.

Does Cricket count as a sportmix? Lol JK... But in all honesty this dog is incredibly fast and loves to get out there and get it done. Loves agility and I really want to try her in dock diving for the hell of it.

I have thought a whippijack could be a good sport mix. Though it doesn't sound as cool as a koolwhip

If I could take the best traits of the JRT (drivey, balance, and size) and mix with the whippet (sheer speed, lightness, and biddability) one could have a killer agility dog.
