Endangered dog breeds

4 posts in this topic

The loveable sheepdog breed used to advertise Dulux and the corgis famously favoured by the Queen are at risk of extinction.

Only 316 old English sheepdog puppies have been registered with the Kennel Club this year, while less than 450 offspring of the historic Pembroke Welsh corgi breed have been confirmed.

The Kennel Club has placed them on its list of endangered breeds, along with 30 others including the wheaten terrier and Welsh terrier.

They can always... breed more of them, right?

Good.

When the job a breed was bred for is no longer around, or the needs of the culture have changed, then the breed has to change or else disappear.

This is NO tragedy. Man made these breeds.

I don't know much about other Kennel Clubs, but IMO, the American Kennel Club is one of the worst things to happen to domestic dogs as a species.

Sheepdogs are so cute, would hate to see them go. Bet there will always be traces of them around in the mutts.
