Help me out. I'm not sure what would make it revolting? If they had their own classes and had to be spayed and neutered?Bob Gutermuth said:http://www.akc.org/mixedbreed_survey/
What a revoltin development this could be. I wonder what solon on madison Ave dreamed up this idea?? :x
Our local OB club currently offers classes to mix-breeds but would not allow mix-breeds in competition even if AKC permitted.Kristie Wilder said:What do you think is that bad thing about it?
Not exactly true, it depends how you look at it. In almost all cases of purebreds, they are the product of the mixing of other purebreds, not the product of mix-breeds.john fallon said:
You mean "neuter."Nuter and Spay them and bring 'em on 8)
I would be really suprised if this would hold true. I would GUESS, not sure, but GUESS, that many OB competitors that run purebreeds have mutts. NOT that they want to breed mutts. And if a mutt obtains a title, it can't be bred anyway...AmiableLabs said:Our local OB club currently offers classes to mix-breeds but would not allow mix-breeds in competition even if AKC permitted.Kristie Wilder said:What do you think is that bad thing about it?
The thought is first that it is a good thing to help these owners and their dogs. However second, the fancy should not do anything that encourages their propagation or sanctions their existence.

The point is those of us that have to travel 3+ hours for events can take our mixed breeds also and have fun with them instead of having to leave them at home and rush home to take care of them. I know around here the shows are hardly ever full to where purebreds cant get in so why not be able to fill those classes instead of having them sit empty.Steve Amrein said:I also took the survey and in the comments portion I made sure to let them know that it seamed like a way for them to raise more money. I also bet that some of the breed clubs that put these on would flat refuse to continue to put them on. As far as I am concerned this is the same as a few of the most recent breeds to be reconized by AKC that alot of its members did not want them to. If the need is so great to have these dogs compete than the should ban together and do so and they can have as many events as they wish. I am not a purebred snob but whats the point, no points not improving the breed.
