This video from TheDoggyDish.com offers an interesting variety of viewpoints on the issue of breed bias, mostly several individuals discussing breeds they like and others they are not so fond of.
While my wife and I have rescued a number of basset hounds and greyhounds over the last two decades – and we have a special fondness for these dogs – I must admit if I have a slight bias, it’s for the mutts. Mutts are great and don’t get enough acknowledgment for their greatness.
I wouldn’t trade any of our rescued mutts for any of champion show dogs featured in the top national events. The first dog I’d suggest to anyone asking which breed might be best to adopt – is the mixed-breed.
Over the course of my years on the planet, I can think back on some very special dogs, mutts and purebred rescues, who have deeply enriched my life – from a collie-shepherd mix I grew up with up to a pit bull-lab mix and a lab-rottweiler mix who both passed away last fall.
Breed bias? – No, not me. They’re all great, but with the mutts holding a special spot in the animal kingdom.
