Ever Seen A Better Example Of A 'genuine' First Cross....?

Recommended Posts

 

 

i have to agree with the last post. but animals that get the best of both worlds rarely throw it. the mold is broke after making them.

Pye was one of those rarities that, when lines were tight, threw dogs both as good, if not better, in shape and attitude. :yes:

 

 

 

i saw another pic of him fine looking animal :thumbs:

 

Was it this one?

how old was he when he lost his tail? before he got his name as a good worker or after?

Don't know what age he lost his tail, fairly young I think. He had a name as a worker from the off, for those who knew the dog but his name grew with his offspring and then, as of so many dogs, became a 'legend' ( :rolleyes: ) on internet forums. :guitar:

 

That picture must be over 20 years old, I put it up only for the fact that as a 'genuine' he was/is the best example of type i've ever seen.

 

Do you mean he looks 50/50 ?

 

Sort of Jeemes, is it really cut and dried at 50/50, I know thats what in theory you should aim for but I honestly think there are first crosses that seem to make sommat better?

Take that Pye dog, he ain't 50/50, in certain parts of his body he's almost pure one thing or the other. How much bull blood is in his height, how much greyhound in his head... Nope, for me he's simply threw to the best of both and the percentages fall where they fall. Many good half bred's, of any type, fall that way...

 

Yes I agree with what you are saying,but also I think the two breeds compliment each other and blend very well with further in or line breeding,provided the right types were there in the first cross. For instance not all Bull types are as keen for the actual physical work as others and the same with greys, If you get the right ones that eat work you can get fitness to much higher levels.

I'd imagine it was a nice lean bull that sired him rather than the type you see everywhere nowadays that are like american bulldogs?
