    Reminder that bogans just bred whatever worked and didn't require any veterinary assistance or highly detailed stud books to be used or replicated and the resulting breed produced a dog that lived for 29 years.

    Following kennel club recognition and breeding to fix aesthetic traits, bluey's health has not been replicated and the average lifespan of the ACD has trended down to 13 +/- 2 years. However, there are anecdotes of dingo-like cattle dog mutts with few of the aesthetic traits of the ACD breed living far longer.

      that's pretty much huskies. officially AKC-approved huskies will normally croak before they turn 14 and randomly have epilepsy. however, the working wolfy looking sled dog mutts that people call huskies despite having almost no conformation to the AKC's arbitrary standards besides straight legs routinely live to 15-18. if you're anywhere sled dogs were traditionally used you can still get primitive dogs and mixes between them and showskies. they are exceptionally healthy, most of them look a little different, and most people will still call them huskies anyways.

    A lot of horse breeds/color varieties have genetic issues from severe inbreeding and very few founding animals. Lethal white and lavender foal syndrome are two extreme cases of the results from bad breeding of recessive traits.

    The worst dead end breed I can think of is probably fancy fantail pigeons. Fancy pigeon breeding is not as mainstream as dogs and horses, but very wealthy people have managed to selectively preserve and breed for birds that can barely walk, perch, drink, eat, see, fly, mate, or move thanks to deformed skeletons. There are other pigeon types with similar "should not exist" traits like the nearly-beakless or giant ballooned crop varieties-- but fantails are a monstrosity of cruelty that make pugs look okay.

    Doodles. Doodle owners fucking suck and I imagine their breeders arent much better.
    I worked in a pet shop for 6 months and got to see all kinds of dog owners. Doodle owners were FINE but they were just so narcissistic. Talked about 'ohhh they're so healthy because they're a cross' meanwhile never take their dog with POODLE LIKE HAIR to a fucking groomers so it's basically suffocating in that mass. Ontop of that so many get them as a family dog, which I don't think poodles are. They're too aloof and have too short temperaments for small children, so the more poodley the doodle the less family friendly it is. I have yet to meet a friendly labradoodle.
    It is so obvious people are only getting doodles because they're new and trendy and look like teddy bears and these are the kinds of people who can't handle their dog being called what it is, a cross breed.
    I now work for a ferry company and whenever people take their doodles across the pet passport says 'crossbreed' so I obviously refer to it as such.
    >okay can you scan your crossbreeds chip for me 🙂
    >Haha crossbreed 🙂 they're a labracockerfuckerdoodle
    >Haha okay it just says crossbreed on your pet passport
    >so my pet passport is wrong then! She's a first generation rare coloured goldenlabrabordercuntingdoodle
    >oh so you admit your pet passport has incorrect information on it?
    >YES
    >lmao okay go talk to my supervisor I can't let you cross with a voided pet passport
    These owners are so fucking dumb it makes me angry.

      >I have yet to meet a friendly labradoodle.
      This, they're usually well-mannered and enthusiastic but their residual poodleness just makes them kind of cold and nonpresent, like there's no sentience or affect behind their beady little eyes. Pair with the reality that they are custom-engineered to be lifestyle accessories for upper middle class yuppies instead of actual companions, and I assume breeders have been working hard to minimize their personality and self-awareness since those are beside the point of what a Tesla-driving Karen who does environmental consulting wants out of a dog.

      Definitely the most soulless breed and right behind pitbulls on my list of most despised dogs.

        Partly because because they liked creating or uncovering examples of national/philosophical superiority to wave around. Partly because you could get killed or jailed if someone decided that your favorite dog breed was actually a waste of public funds on foreign propaganda or embodied anti Leninism.

    >Working line
    Using terms like working line, breeder lines, and so on creates an artificial sense of hierarchy and division among dogs.

    A mutt dog is a a dog that has two or more different types of parents.

    the foundation stock for Border Collies was likely a mix of various herding and working dogs from the British Isles, including the Scottish Borders.

    Keyword: a mix.

      Naw, it creates legit division. A working line dog isn't going to be as patient when he gets poked a prodded as a show line dog, and a show line rat terrier wouldn't be as effective at catching rats as a decker rat terrier.
      Both have a chance at making unhealthy dogs, but the show line is much more likely to have unhealthy dogs, due to their reasoning for choosing mating pairs.

      If you want a healthy long lived pet, try finding a large ish breeder who doesn't factory farm, working line breed, and doesn't show breed. He would mostly be breeding just to improve the breed at that point.

      If I had a ton of money and time I would clan breed german shepherd x husky, because they both have what the other needs health wise, and they share a similar body type.

        There is no legitimate basis for dividing dogs into show line and working line dogs. These terms are not based on any objective criteria and therefore are arbitrary and subjective.

        There is no evidence to suggest that conformation participating dogs are any less capable of working than non-confirmation participating dogs.

                At the moment, I don't believe toadlines are different enough to be a different breed. They're just show line dogs of the ghetto.

                I'm not sure you can really massacre their working dogs. Dogs have litters of 6+. There is always a massive fucking surplus of dogs, far beyond the number of people that need working dogs, even the breeders. Some of those won't be the best workers. There is absolutely nothing wrong with breeding those to specialize as pets, and doing that puts you at an advantage because the similar looking pet helps prevent people from adopting your working stock. Otherwise when normies adopt working stock you, as a breeder, lose a lot of your field testing and there is no point in retaining breeding rights AKA part of how you get $$$$.

                a working dog only ends when its job does. look at golden retrievers. gun dogs are not a practicality. it's a purely recreational form of hunting as "sportsmanship". if you just want food, the 30 seconds you save picking up birds is NOT worth the 30 birds you have to feed your dog. gun dogs were always a nobility hunting for fun kind of dog so when that classof nobility pretty much died off so did a lot of their "working" breeds.

      Take a look at what goes on with australian shepherd DNA ENTIRELY FOR AESTHETIC REASONS. The answer is, quite simply, that they are psychopaths. Neither of these genes should really exist, because they only work if every single pairing is very tightly controlled and only "real breeders" can mate dogs... obviously that runs counter to reality.

      People who breed dogs carrying genes like these should really be shot. Multiple times. Just not in the head or heart. They would die too quickly.

      Oh and yes people have purposefully bred double merle dogs, and tried to get double bobtail dogs to live, for the sole purpose of providing sires that can father litters that are entirely heterozygous for the trait. Why? They cost more money, and win more shows, because the paper of arbitrary standards says so! That's not all, breeders have also propagated genetic disease in working dogs entirely to keep them all pure whatevers.

          It does. And knowing that lots of very good herding dogs are not purebred from competition winners at all, so it's all completely pointless, unless your goal is to win competitions, not get the job done.

        What's wrong with the "hell no" phenotype?

        I recently learned it's the same with the cute dwarf bunnies. Any bunny that inherits two dwarf alleles dies soon after it's born. Not sure what to think of it ethically.

          Nothing and breeders actuallt dont think there's anything wrong with it either.
          GOOD breeders will always breed together 2 dogs that have the most compatibility. They will never breed 2 merles that have chances of throwing dead/db pups. Good breeders will keep 'boring' dogs with good genes. Good breeders will continue to breed those boring looking dogs to keep genetic diversity high.

          Shitty breeders will ofc do shitty things and purposefully breed for Bob tails, merle, etc with no regard to genetic health. But 4chin and other adjacent retards like to think bad breeders = all breeders and this is simply not the case.

            If dogs can’t reproduce without oversight they are sick. Merle is a disease.

              Agreed. Purposefully breeding a merle should be under torture breeding laws. Accidental puppies are bad enough. Accidental puppies where some of them are severely deformed? Yeah no. Breeders are not perfectly in control so fatal genes like merle and bobtail just result in dead and suffering dogs.

                First of all, outlawing breeding dogs would do nothing to improve the quality of the dog population. Breeders would simply shift their practices to other breeds of dogs, which would lead to even more genetic problems in the dogs. Furthermore, breeding dogs is a necessary part of the dog population in order to keep it healthy and adaptable.

                Breeding dogs also helps to ensure that the dog population is healthy. For example, when a dog is bred with a specific purpose in mind, such as working or hunting, the resulting offspring is likely to be better suited for that purpose than if the dog was bred randomly. This ensures that the overall quality of the dog population is high.

                Lastly, banning breeding dogs would be unconstitutional. The US Constitution guarantees the right to own and breed dogs, as long as the practice does not violate any other laws.

                He didn't criticisized breeding dogs, he criticisized the way AKC breeds dogs. To my knowledge only that extreme anti-merle says it should be outlawed.

                Then can't it be treated in a case by case basis? Surely this counts as animal abuse in most cases, therefore breaking a law

              Lots of animals in the wild reproduce without oversight and end up fucking their sisters and producing some weird creatures.
              Allowing dogs, any breed of dog, to reproduce willy nilly is a terrible awful no-good very bad idea.

                Anon they really don’t. Inbred animals are normally pretty healthy for generation 1 and it’s rare.

                Merle shit means if one dog fucks the wrong one you have deaf and blind pups. You create this risk for hurr durr pretty colors. It’s wrong.
                >we vill always be responsible breeders honest!
                Proven wrong already. Ban the breeding of merles. Spay and neuter every merle dog. Prosecute everyone who knowingly bred merles.

                animals in the wild have instincts to avoid inbreeding. inbreeding goes up when humans drive them to extinction and destroy their habitat because we have a fucked up idea of how many animals there need to be.

                there was once an island in canada with only two wolves left, a father and a daughter. they rejected each other as mates for ages until desperation finally set in.

          Basically just the opposite of all the traits that particular lazy breeding wants. A normal tail, “boring” colors that don’t sell as much, and the wrong ears so it can’t even be shown or whatever.

            The arbitrarily written standard says so
            How the AKC works:
            Find a handful of landrace dogs you think look pretty
            Describe an ideal version of them
            Inbreed the fuck out of them until they all look the same, 100% of the litter. Call your degeneracy “improving the breed”.

              The AKC does not find a handful of "pretty" landrace dogs, de-characterize them, and then inbreed them until they all look the same. There are a variety of reasons why a dog may look "pretty," and it is not solely based on their physical appearance. For example, some dogs may look pretty because they have a well-muscled body, while others may look pretty because they have a beautiful coat. It is not the job of the AKC to determine which dogs are "pretty" and which are not, and furthermore, it is not their job to improve the breed by de-characterizing and inbreeding dogs who do not meet their arbitrary standards of "pretty."

              The AKC does not arbitrarily decide which dogs are "pretty" and which are not. Instead, they rely on breed standards, which are set by experts who are knowledgeable about dog genetics and anatomy. The AKC does not de-characterize or inbreed dogs based on their appearance; they only do so if they believe that the dogs' physical features are not in line with the breed's standard. Therefore, it is inaccurate to say that the AC does these things.

                breeding dogs for any purpose other than maximum lifespan degrades health. this is basic natural selection. if something is not selected for, it degrades. professionally bred dogs are not selected for a lifespan beyond 8 years, at which points dogs are retired from all services due to age. therefore, purebred dogs all tend towards a maximum lifespan of 8, as disorders that affect that stage of their life are not selected against.

                only one dog has had its genome sequenced. we do not understand even 1% of its function. breeders are objectively not able to fix all their mistakes - such as breed specific cancer rates and idiopathic epilepsy - without culling entire bloodlines and starting over from landraces and wolves. WE DO NOT EVEN KNOW HOW TO SOLVE THESE PROBLEMS IN HUMANS.

                This is objective fact. Not up for debate. Disagreement is not allowed. Understand? If you reply with any dissenting opinion, any more cheeky "safe and effective" propaganda styled ramblings, my only response will be to insult you. Do you understand, you hideous swine faced fuckwit?

                this. we don't fully understand the genetics of longevity in humans, and we've clearly degraded them in dogs to a point where we would have to selectively breed dogs for lifespan because we have literally no fucking idea where the CRISPY-friendly dont-die switch is. this is so specific that we would be breeding out odd physical traits and neurotic behaviors like herding instinct, just like breeding for oddities requires discarding the odd unusually healthy dog, because a dog that lives to 20 is useless when your goal is having a dog herd sheep the fastest for the trials when it's 3. never mind that such breeding is pointless. farmers have never worried about their sheepdog working 30s faster in an artificial environment, and real working sheepdogs are more loosely bred.

                A lot of farmers are also trialists. Hard to be one when you don't have plenty of work for your dogs. Those that aren't are usually retired farmers with old dogs. Trialing isn't about the dog working 30sec faster though, that's not what he's judged on at all. There are time limits but they are generous.. Lot of these kinds of dogs live around 15 years average, even ones that are quite large and work well until they are 10 or so before they start to slow down due to worn joints and arthritis more than anything, and not so suited to the big jobs anymore

                And then their dog goes deaf at 5 and has a seizure and dies at the ripe old age of 6, thankfully, because their owner was seriously considering 30k on chemo for the several kinds of cancer they developed.

                They don't win in the first place. Chances are their dog chases the sheep off through a fence and after a few minutes of frantic yelling it comes back with a rabbit

                No, actually, their dog wins. They are bred entirely to 1: be 100% the breed and a great aesthetic example of it 2: also work at a competitive level. So they are a minefield of health problems. Then some retard farmer sees that, but not the years that follow, pays $10k to get one from the next litter, and even breeds them long before problems can even be obvious, so dogs are basically being bred to die before they turn 10.
