In the world of dog lovers, cross-breeding has often been a topic of debate and argument. If you are unaware of what crossbreeding is, it is mixing dogs of two distinct dog breeds together and having their litter.
There are people who believe that ‘cross breeds’ are in fact ‘impure’ and they are also accidental. On the other hand, many think that it is actually the opposite.
When it comes to the answer to this, there is no correct yes or no! The choice really depends on the owner and their perspective.
There are indeed positives and negatives to this phenomenon too. In cross-breeding, two different breeds of dogs are bred together.
Positives and Negatives
When we talk about the positives of cross-breeding, the most obvious one is the ‘variety’. As long as the two dogs are compatible, you can have a mix of whichever breeds you want.
This also cuts down the chances of inheriting genetic diseases. Hence, the strength of your puppies increases. They also make excellent pets. They can be easily trained and disciplined. They can adopt the personalities of their parents.
Another big advantage, the one which is why many people opt for cross-breeding, is because they get a unique look! They look absolutely beautiful with their distinct look, coat, and color.
On the other hand, there are a few dangers that come with this. First, their breeding costs much more money. You will have a tough time predicting the size to which your dog may grow. It can be difficult, and it can also be anyone’s guess.
Another complication arises during delivery, if you don’t know the size of the litter, it can lead to difficulty during delivery. If the pups are too big, your dog might require an emergency C-section. This can also cause problems.
Whether you crossbreed your dogs or not is up to you, but you should remember that there are positives and negatives to everything. Hence, be aware.
