    Default Enjoying dogs of questionable lineage

    Itís impossible to ignore that many dogs of questionable lineage not only provide game for the table, but make great sport of it to boot.

    I see this getting into a heated debate but lets try and keep it light.
    My belief a good handler can bring out the most out of anything.
    Like duct tape can fix everything.... though it might not be the best solution.

    I don't put much stock into lineage and here's why.

    Years ago we bought two black labs from a reputable breeder recommended to us by the breeder's vet who was a family friend.

    One was a tank. Amazing retriever, easily trained, soft mouth, very food motivated and the most loyal, protective and reliable dog I've ever owned. She was our little iron dog. She died at 9 years old of cancer.

    Her sister was delicate, wouldn't retrieve, not food motivated, seemed to feel training was beneath her but was oddly enough a good flushing dog and a stone killer of anything she caught. She needed two cruciate ligament surgeries, developed epilepsy at a young age, was blind by age 10 and lived quite happily to 14.

    Same litter, same lineage, same environment and two very different dogs in personality, health and performance. We loved them both.

    I was always under the assumption all "Purebreed" labs are inbred to the point of no return.

    Lol, Still my favorite breed of dogs.

    Interesting link to read. All I can say is that my best hunting dogs were from a proven lineage. My most fun dogs (JRTs) were rescues- bad lineage.
