Cross Breeding – Mating Dogs of Different Breeds

I am sure you are aware that in order to produce an equally healthy offspring, you must mate dogs of different breeds. It is obvious that the mating of all the dogs of a particular breed will produce puppies of different breeds; however, in order to reduce the genetic problems which may result, you must be selective in choosing the mate. In fact, in order to reduce the occurrence of any genetically inherited congenital disease, you should mate only the best of the compatible dogs for your particular breed. If you are not sure what this means, let me explain. Cross Breeding Cross Breeding Cross Breeding Cross Breeding

As an example, if you have a purebred Golden Retriever, then you will be able to mate a German Shepherd with a Golden Retriever. This will not produce a non- shedding or low-shedding dog. On the other hand, you will be unable to produce a genetically normal siblings which completely lack the trait of the Golden Retriever breed. If you mate a mixed-breed, then you are open to the possibility that the offspring may be partially or fully non-shedding or shedding. Therefore, you need to ensure the compatibility of the mating. If you do not own the original breed of dog, you will need to identify the breeds that you are crossing off and then try to produce the genetically acceptable offspring.

 

Tracing Back to Its roots, cross breeding was used by some of the ancient civilizations. Some of the records of these civilizations are on potters of Egypt, Greece, and Rome. According to Egyptian records, the pharaohs mated dogs and cats. Hence, the initiate would have been expected to produce the offspring following the pharaoh’s death. This may have been in lieu of food, as a sign of companionship or to gain favor with the pharaoh. Some of the ancient priceless works of art includes dog sacrificing to offering their own lives to the gods.

 

Again, Greece had a dog breed that was popular with the ancient civilized – the Molossus. The Molossus was valued for its robust good looks and was used in war and also for hunting. The Molossus was crossed with donkeys, camels, and other animals. This resulted in the large variety of breeds. The most popular breeds included the Boar hound, the Hepes, and the Suli. These breeds were in service making them guard dogs and also hunting dogs.

 

In Notably, the Romans were a heavy cigarette consuming people. It is for this reason that the dogs of that time were selectively bred to have short noses and also black noses and eyes. The resulting dogs are none other than the mastiff dog – a strong, powerful dog. The downside to this breed is that they are not good at breathing and snore very loudly – which may not be a great companion in modern times.

 

In conclusion, there are ancient records of cross breeding between dogs – especially the ones with different native territories. Different rock carvings show dogs that can be traced back to these ancient civilizations and these dogs can be species that have been mixed with modern breeds. However, considering the effort and huge amounts of time and money that were put into breeding these ancient dogs, it is unsurprising that we have so many different breeds today.
