Mixed Breeds

Are Mutts Healthier Than Purebreds?

With the majority of our canine companions NOT being purebred, it’s nice to know the advantages of mixed-breeds or mutts, also known as mongrels.  SmallBreedDogs, in an article below gives a good overview of the advantages of mongrels, perhaps the most notable of which is better all-around health.

One of the best features of mongrels is that they are each completely unique. Being one of a kind truly is a great characteristic to have in a pet and companion. Most purebred dogs are very predictable and look very similar to one another. However, mixed dogs are extremely unique not only in appearance, but also in terms of temperament.

Most people are completely unaware of this next fact: most have better all-around health. Since these dogs are not purebred, they may be able to avoid genetically passed down diseases that are commonly found in purebred dogs. Therefore, these pets tend to live a lot longer allowing your special bond to last for years longer than pedigree dogs that are usually inbred.

Finally, these mongrels tend to have a relatively high intelligence level. Furthermore, believe it or not, these mixed puppies are generally more intelligent than most purebred dogs. Furthermore, they have been through a good bit and tend to possess a great deal of common sense. They have had to do whatever they can to take care of themselves, which most purebred dogs will never experience.

The specific health concerns of each purebred line are well documented.  Perhaps the most alluring advantages of mongrels are that they tend to be healthier and live longer.  Why did you choose a mixed breed companion?

    Upon the next day’s wakening, again the Green Knight had set out.
    Rested the squire, and listened intently to the morning’s bright sounds:
    here a bird, there a squirrel. If you’d taken the effort to read Wikipedia’s policies
    as you require others to read Threshold’s, you would
    not be in this situation.

    But today they behave in such a manner that
    they do not visibly act vilely, do not get caught
    by law and attract censure from society. Morrigan should fall pretty quick and not manage to do
    too much damage. I suppose not the “phony”solders of Limbaugh’s disdain,’.
