the early founders of the breed would always outcross with other working type dogs. all this linebreeding could lead to lots of health isssues.

some new outcross blood in the tradition of the founders would do great for the breed.............wouldn't it??

We all get culls (crap) put it down is my opinion but at least spay or neuter. Do not give a full registration until the dog is proven to be quality or better then that do not give the papers at all until you know of quality. But oops the will sure dip in the pockets of puppy sales.
