Just curious why you consider a Terrier a working breed?
i wouldnt say tht all terriers were officially a working dog but most were bred for a purpose,

e.g: border terriers were bred with a gait capable of following a horse so tht they could follow a horse on hunting trips, then they were trained to go down the hole and retrieve the prey, which could be a rabbit or a fox. There not a working breed in the sense of a border collie or a beagle but most were bred for a purpose, many dogs from working lines (like my harley) still have a very high prey dive and no fear of holes.
thats just an example of a terrier working but in the case of mach1girl i dont no how a pit bull terrier is a working breed but i no some terriers are lol

American Pitbull Terriers were bred to work, although in todays society, THAT type of "work" is out of the question. (Thank GOD) However, working the APBT is still the dogs main purpose, whether it be catch dogs, or common PPT (Which is mostly AB, but does apply to the APBT as well) to weight pull. They are a working dog,, and besides "show" they possess a tremendous amount of drive and endurance, determination, etc...............all traits of the working background from which they come from.


BESIDES~~~This thread is not about ME, it is about this chick and her puppies, and I'd appreciate it if it stayed on topic!

Well I haven't read all and this as far as I can see has gone way off topic, a dog that isn't registered is recognized as a cross! I should know I bred JRTs, here they are thought of as crosses elsewhere they are registered

My puppy yard was concrete and shaded, with 4 foot walls on each side in addition to the chain link. Outdoor sanitation isn't that hard if you have the right setup. I raised foster litters and my mentors' litters outside and never lost one.

Well, I have lost one puppy, but not from being outside. He was limp from seizuring shortly after receiving his first vaccine, and Cornell euthanized him.

On the topic, I have his brother - Archie. Do any of you know whether or not vaccine reactions are linked to anything genetically or is it just random?

"Alaskan Husky" is a term for the generic racing sled dog. There's everything behind those dogs. It's no specific cross or mix.

Well, if you look at it that way EVERY dog breed is a working dog. All were created for a purpose.

Pretty much everywhere. The AKC recognizes the Parsons Russel Terrier, but not the Jack Russel Terrier, because of how varied the dogs can be. Smooth coat, broken coat, short legged, long legged...so it's still a breed, but it's not recognized. I'm still not 100% clear on the difference between the PRT and the JRT, but oh well.

Congrats on the puppies!!
