Thread: Roux pups- what are the negatives, if any??

  1. #1

    Question Roux pups- what are the negatives, if any??

    Hello everyone,

    For those of you out there who have pups out FC-AFC Louisiana Roux MH, do you have any issues with vocalization? I have searched extensively for threads related to him and while there are lots of threads involving praise of his offspring (which seems warranted ), I am wondering what negatives you have seen. Can anyone please enlighten me on specific traits, like vocalization, that you have seen in his pups that you would consider undesirable? Please feel free to PM me if you'd rather not go public with this information. Thanks in advance!

    I have trained with Roux and have seen several of his pups run HTs and FTs. None have been vocal, at all. The ones well trained are statues on the line.

    Have trained and competed against Roux and some of his offspring. The big negative. They are brown.

    Default Roux pups- what are the negatives, if any??

    At a minimum, they all carry chocolate.
    Or, even worse, they could be affected.

    Sire brings 50% of his genetics..that dam brings her traits to the offspring as well.

    Down Side not many Blacks out of him, but we're working on that He gets grouped as being chocolate first and a FC-AFC dog second, which might still carry bad ju-ju in FT circles, but we're working on that too . I been around CUDA, BLUE Ryder, and many of that lines Offspring (Pirate, Moda, etc. never seen one be vocal). They do have a history of doing well with amateur trainers. He is an EIC carrier but so are most of the FC-AFC FT dogs, might be why we don't see a ton of litters out of him. That and the fact that he's is pretty particular on female suitors. But if your really want to know ask Frank, he trolls the RTF posting outrageous drool-worthy duck hunting pics of a certain brown FC, and is very a honest and stand up guy.
