  1. Graussies -- Documentation for the Brussels Griffon X Australian Terrier crossbreeding is extensive. Researchers hope that their findings will improve breeding guidelines and develop more sophisticated ways of screening so that fewer toy breed dogs develop Chiari-like malformation.
  2. The Finnish Kennel Club has written instructions for breed crossing. The instructions are of help for breeders and breed clubs in planning, applying and monitoring breed crosses and crossbred individuals. This information is presented in The Finnish Kennel Club: Crosses between Breeds on DogWellNet.com in the Breeding for Health section: sub.section Crossbreeding.
  3. More on crossbreeding in Finland Pinscher Kromfohrländer Due to interest in my previous post on Instructions for Crosses Between Breeds , I have been asked to provide some more information. At the moment, we have two crossbreeding projects going on in Finland: one in the Pinscher and another in the Kromfohrländer. The crossbred progeny are always registered in the appendix, ER-register, for three generations. From the 4th generation onward the progeny is registered in the normal, FI-register. The Pinscher is being crossed with the Schnauzer and the FKC has granted permission for four F1-litters. Three of them have been made so far (the project started in the 1990s). Here’s the newest report of the Pinscher project: http://www.elisanet.fi/yarracitta/CrossbreedingsENfinal.pdf or see the article under Crossbreeding on DogWellNet. Kromforhländer has been crossed with three different breeds (Standard Poodle, Parson Russell Terrier and Tibetan Terrier) in order to keep the breed as diverse as possible and not to take it in the direction of one foreign breed only. I am waiting for some written info about the project (in English) and will try to provide this – and pictures – in the future. We have also made three other cross-bred litters: Barbet with Spanish Waterdog Barbet with Pont-Audemer Spaniel Brasilian Terrier with Danish-Swedish Farm Dog (info coming on these litters as well) (Note that the breed in which the progeny is registered is mentioned first) The main challenge with crossbreeding in Finland is this: Many breeders here would like to crossbreed but, we always ask the opinion of the country of origin, and we would prefer to get their support. We have had problems with this – sometimes having no response to inquiries to the national kennel club. In at least one case, a request to the breed club in the country of ownership – in a breed with well-known heath issues – provoked the response that: a breeder who did any cross would have their membership from the club revoked and their stud dogs removed from the club registry. So we are very grateful for Germany and France for being so open-minded and giving our inquiry a positive feedback . From our perspective at the FKC, we do not understand why people are so afraid of breed crosses. After all, that is how most breeds have been developed in the first place. We are just taking a short step back, in order to then move forward with healthier dogs, with appropriate temperament who are able to do the activities for which the breed is intended. We know that we might get some undesirable surprises with crossbreeding, but that might happen in “purebred” breeding as well. Of course, care should be taken in choosing the foreign breed and the individuals, as well as in deciding which crossbred dogs to use in further breeding, but this should, again, apply to any breeding, whether purebred or crosses.
  4. Why did cross breeding become taboo in the world of pedigree dogs? Author, Ingemar Borelius discusses the history of the purebred dog - breed standards, breeding between varieties of breeds, effects of the reduction in heterozygosity/narrowing gene pools and current efforts and measures taken to sustain genetic diversity in breeds with the aim of addressing health and welfare issues. Specific breeds mentioned in this writing are the Retrievers and several others (Spaniels, Lundehund, German pinscher, Kromfohrländer...) .

  6. In their article: https://www.kennelliitto.fi/en/forms/instructions-implementing-and-monitoring-crosses-between-breeds Instructions For Implementing And Monitoring Crosses Between Breeds (approved by the Finnish Kennel Club board 22.11.2013. Valid from 1.1.2014) the Finnish Kennel Club (FKK) presents their goals (below), which also explain the motivation behind the program. It is important to note that the FKK has a strong history and well-developed program of monitoring and evaluating health and performance with each breed club reporting on conditions in their dogs. This forms the foundation for a considered and controlled approach to including cross-breeding in genetic strategies. "Goals: what is lacking: why are breed crosses needed? Improving or restoring working traits Decreasing the incidence of breed-specific genetic problems in health, behaviour and/or reproduction traits A harmful mutation allele has been fixed in the breed: bringing back a normal allele into the breed Improving the health in a breed with exaggerated conformation traits Improving general fitness in the breed (decreasing the incidence of immunological problems) Breed crosses are primarily intended for breeds which lack the necessary genetic variance needed in breeding against important traits. The application should include an analysis of the situation of the breed. The analysis should clearly show the need for crossbreeding. The breed-specific breeding strategy (JTO) of the breed may form the basis of the analysis."
  7. Katariina Mäki, breeding advisor at the Finnish Kennel Club (FKC) has been presenting information in her Blog on the programs and approach in Finland. One of the programs involves the Pinscher, which has been in a crossbreeding program, with Schnauzers, since the 1990s. This report was presented at a meeting in Germany in 2010 : PINSCHER-SCHNAUZER CROSSBREEDING PROJECT is available online or in our Downloads section. In her blog, Katariina carefully acknowledges the risks and challenges involved in crossbreeding, but clearly, many feel that for some breeds, the potential benefits outweigh the risks.
