In a rare breed, it is critical that only those who are knowledgeable about genetics, breeding, and a sire and dam’s strengths and weaknesses attempt to breed dogs. Breeding dogs is never to be entered into lightly.
In rare breeds, it is possible to damage a portion of the already limited gene pool by just a few irresponsible and uneducated breedings, motivated by greed or ignorance. Breedings overseen by conscientious, ethical breeders normally have great results. If error is found by an ethical breeder, they take care of the situation by making sure a damaged prodigy is not used for breeding purposes and research what happened to reduce the problem from reoccurring.
There is a great saying, “Just because a dog is purebred doesn’t mean that its well-bred, and just because a dog is a well-bred doesn’t mean that it should BE bred.” Ethical breeders will breed for: instinct, structure, coats, health, and temperament. Working versatility would also be included for the Blue Lacy breeding practices.
Please spay or neuter your pets, and leave the breeding to those who have made a life study and commitment to educating themselves about this breed, and sound, ethical breeding practices.
