It had to happen…head in hands

22 Apr

Last week cross bred Glen litters were mentioned; or Glen mixes as the Americans call them. There was more than a hint of sarcasm in the reasoning for the US style “Glen Mix” but this has landed in the inbox. Head is now in hands

    I am afraid that even though we knew it was inevitable, words still fail me!

    I don’t think the Glen mixes in the US are legitimate. The resuces and shelters here want to attach a breed to dogs. Having a rare breed at a rescue makes that dog more adoptable and unique so I think that is what is happening. There are so many other breeds of terriers that are prevalent in the US compared to Glens that I think these mixes are just a terrier mix.

    I’ve seen at least one jack o glen! Sadly the UK is going so far down the designer cross route, really sad! Sadly people believe that the crossing wipes out all the hereditary problems!! I have a good rant about this at least once a fortnight!! 😉

    Glen x Jack Russell ive seen these in the past far too brave for their own good and not a pet.
