I wonder what else we could throw in there to create a true Hell Hound.. Maybe some ACD for good measure? Meet me in my lair for experiments.

:rofl: don't worry too much, Sloan is the GD antichrist, she masks it to lull people into a false sense of security. She creeps me out somedays.

So we could truly create Satan in dog form if we were to cross the two. Some days I just look at Sham doing.. the things Sham does and I can't even think. He can't actually be a real dog.

I would breed Suzie if there was a line of people waiting for the most awesome laid back, sometimes playful, snuggly, people attached, smart puppies. She's the perfect dog for any household. Unless you're looking for a sports dog or something. But she'd still fit in to any house. She's the best.

And Jack has gotten me hooked on pointers. I think they are now one of my favorite breeds. They suit me so well. I don't know anything about structure but he seems sound and square and everything, and he can run for just about forever. So yes, I would breed him. I can't imagine even an even puppier version of Jack. Oh gosh...

Gambit offers to add in some Coyote genes to the hell hound. He brings the ability to open round doorknobs, see in the dark, and perform a rousing booty dance gaurenteed to embarass you in front of your coworkers

Yes and no. She's spayed, so I obviously won't be acting on it either way. She has her faults, and also her strengths. If I were to breed her for show, she wouldn't be a good candidate at all (too leggy, wrong head, wrong gait, wrong tail set, ect). For hunting, probably not as she has a fairly low drive given her background. But for performance, possibly.
Her strengths:
  • Incredibly intelligent
  • Structurally sound
  • Leggy!
  • Great work ethic
  • Drive to be with you
  • Aloof but not shy
  • Great bite
  • Tight lipped
  • Proportionate for her body
  • Skin has give, but isn't exsessivly loose
  • Great ear-set
  • Strong pigmentation
  • Well set eyes
  • Sleek, well muscled body
    • Easy flowing, smooth gait
  • Deep chest, but not so deep it drags
    • Excels in obedience and is a natural at agility

Her weaknesses:
  • Slightly arched back (this is her biggest issue by far)
  • I personally would like to see her front legs be a bit straigher, even though they're much nicer than the average Doxie

Both of mine: NOPE

Buster:
I do believe most of his behavioural issues are linked to lack of early socialisation and complete lack of understands in how to deal with them for a long time. He's a very anxious dog.
He also has HD
And his prey drive is through the roof but it isn't like "YAY TUG!" prey drive, it's like "Hunt, chase, kill" prey drive.
I would love to start him from a puppy again, he could have smashed just about any sport I threw at him I think.

But no, not a dog that needs to be bred.

Quinn:
Just no. She's pretty, she's sweet. But where I think buster has a good genetic foundation layered with crappy socialisation/training/life experience. Quinn has had better socialisation and a mountain of training, it is all layered on a crappy foundation.
She was the shyest pup int he litter, scared of everything as a pup. Generally just nervous.
She has grown into a nice dog but she's always going to be quirky as hell and a bit of a nervebag.
She has decent drive but she isn't great at focussing it. She struggles a lot when there is a lot of stimulation around.
She moves before she thinks and if you don't give her very clear direction her head just runs.
She does have herding instinct but a lack of general confidence paired with high prey drive/reactivity means she isn't really a natural.

I have put a mountain of work into her to help build her into a dog that looks good from the outside, but imo, thats a great example of why she shouldn't be bred. I still see all the holes in her temperament.

I love her to death but she is definetly not a dog there needs to be more of.

Well, yes I do consider Miz Naughty breeding worthy and I did breed her lol

She's not perfect structurally and I did get some flak about breeding what was probably a pet quality bitch, but I did have very strong reasons for doing what I did and the results have spoken for themselves because I got what I was looking for.

Miz Naughty has one of the best temperaments I've come across in a Cardigan, hands down. She has a TON of working drive, very biddable, very intelligent, and she comes from generations of dogs who are very long lived and healthy.

One of her great grandparents lived to be 17, which is pretty darn old for any dog. Her grandparents are still alive at 15 and very active.

Structurally, she has a really nice head piece, nice length of neck, nice depth of body and she's solid as a rock. Plus, she has a really nice shoulder and a long upper arm which is pretty hard to get in our breed.

Is she perfect? Oh no lol She has very little wrap no turn out and her rear angle is not even what I'd call moderate. She's high on leg, she's butt high, she doesn't have as much bone as I'd like and she has a scorpion tail. Not only that, she's a bit cowhocked.

But, what did she produce with the right dog?

Both of her puppies have:

really nice length of body
lovely round bone
lovely tight feet
beautiful head pieces
HUGE ears
GREAT temperanents
properly angled rears
correct fronts
medium to low station
good tail sets and carriages
NOT cowhocked
Really nice movement all three ways

And I knew she probably would, because that's what she comes from. So, while everyone else was surprised that I got such nice puppies from her, I was like, "Yup."

So, there you have it. lol

One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from someone who produces some *really* typey and amazing dogs. He told me, "Don't fault judge. Sometimes, dogs with really strong attributes have faults."
