What happens when dogs inbreed

 This young female is fairly mellow for a husky.  My oldest daughter really wants a husky, so maybe...........

I'd have a serious think over the Husky. They are great pets for about one year until their hormones kick in then they'll hunt and kill most things. They are also prone to running away for a few days at a time and add to this they cast more than any dog I know. 

I had one for just over a year and had to get another to keep it company as they are also very destructive when bored.

Both came from the Husky Club and had traceable pedigree. The breader had been in the business for over 30 years and judged, raced and specialised in the breed. In her own words they were the most headstrong but intelligent breed she had worked with. She lost count of owners that were adamant they could train them as their puppies were great off of the lead. One year later they changed their mind lol

They are extremely loving dogs though. So much so that if you go to the toilet on your own they'll claw at the door and howl.

Sounds like good advice!  I had already been wary of them because they are hyper, but my daughter likes them.  I told her, "How are you going to take care of a Husky when you can't even remember to feed the slo-mo cat?".

What you said is what the guy said today.  The Husky was going for our cat, and the guy said the husky had already killed one cat in their yard!  And the female husky seemed relatively mellow, but she is less than one year old.

I'll stick with a lab or retriever!

If you look.at photographs of German shepherds they have been bred so that they have shorter back legs this has created many problems 

The police and military over here in the UK  are having problems with finding suitable German shepherds for working dogs 

They are now using  Belgian Sheppard's in place of German

It is safe to say in general only persons knowledgeable enough to identify highly desirable qualities should attempt close inbreeding, and be ruthless in culling lesser pups. Many breed clubs simply will not allow it, by not accepting pups for registration [though there are always those in power in the organisation who do, and get away with it...politics]

A follow up on this.  Apparently the owners or, the two boys who walk them a lot, don't care at all.  A few weeks ago, bro and sis were doing the wild thing right in front of our house, while the two boys held the leashes and looked on!  :bash:

I'll give you a clue, " two boys who walk them a lot," were probably listening to this song (Just remember that "Dougie" is pronounced Doggie.
