So I've been pondering something lately. What needs to be improved in your breed? For those with less common breeds: with little health problems, what is your goal - to preserve the breed? Do you feel there is enough responsible breeders in your breed or there can never be enough? Should a future breeder shift their focus to a breed that NEEDS improving? The reason I ask is because I am a future breeder. The puppy I am about to get is an Ibizan Hound (see siggy link) which is an uncommon breed. My other favorite breeds are Dobermans and Great Danes, but I had decided not to get into them because of their many health issues and short life. However, maybe that is a reason to help other breeders improve them? Ibizans are very healthy, but maybe breeders need help preserving them? Or maybe I should just get 1 of each then decide? LOL I don't know. Any thoughts?
