Our Mission Statement: To Preserve vs change or improve:
Adding 2013 , NO we don't breed for 'pets? housands of pet dogs die every day in the USA. You want a pet go to the pound, save a life. If more breeders bred for function & not the pet market. The shelters would not be full. . I worked in SPCA when I was a kid. When they used gas chambers.. I watched them walk ttheir last walk. So excuse my bluntness regarding proper breeding ethics... Most all the rescue issues come from Pet people who buy a dog bred to work , When the dog kicks back to function vs sitting on a couch. They don't know what to do and their backyard breeders don't either . So we breed for the original purpose of the breed family pack oriented working dogs.. Yet most of our dogs do function in the family guardian role. Each litter has different temperaments , so we test for it and make matches..
We practice STRICT Natural Selection in our breeding . Which we have based on old world working lines_ not show lines or fighting lines. We have selected 4 Generations of correct guardian temperaments. They are guardians first & foremost . We have refused to change to meet the insane requirements of the show world. By adapting our methods of handling ,choosing venues/judges that prefer working dogs.
Our breeding decisions are based on performance not ribbons.
AkBel 1963 Princess Ali . 2000 FF Gandy 2009
Ali is 5 generation pedigree working titled dog from aboriginal lines .Only one in USA
Before the breed was changed in the last 15 years.
She is the base of our line with 3 outcross males. Certified Excellent FCI RKF Polinova
Her generations have taken on Cougar, Bear, & Car jackers .
Yet in the modern world she would be discarded for not being a show dog.
Naturally protective or trained protective?
Natural stable pack oriented guardian temps are being selected away from. Instead aggression is being marketed as protective.
Real CAS do not need training to protect they need socialization to understand not all strangers are "threats"
Dogs being promoted as Protection dogs , being trained to protect are modern CAO not CAS.
Testing a dogs natural ability is NOT the same as training the dog on weekends to understand what a REAL threat is.
Or training the dog to be stable? No such thing- Training does not replace good judgement..
What happens to their own judgement when you are NOT there?
Warning Other web sites:?
So yes we broke the Mafia Code Of Silence . We stand up for the dogs this results in enemies.
Special note anyone can file a FAKE complainant about their competition.,
Rip off wants 3j to remove a fake report about me made from a fake email. that is Extortion...
We sent a DNA challenge to UKC for a crossbred Litter of Central Asian Shepherds bred iby maxomagic reg as purebred.
We won the challenge and now the breeders friends stalks us trying to hide the truth by creating drama
Rant breeding for the show ring first
All this past CHANGE to other breeds have proven time & time again _to ruin working breeds.
Inbreeding to recreate a Champion has created the most serious genetic diseases today's.
Yet these same dogs_ carriers or affected themselves are Top STUNNING show dogs.
Resulting in over breeding despite genetic disorders .
Show breeders set up newbies who are TOTALLY ignorant with the same affected stock -
Thus creating a Pyramid scheme in which the truth is hidden . Massive coverups are a answer to a inherited genetic issue..
Yet we find excuses NOT to breed a dog not the other way around.
FoxFire does NOT breed for fancy spotted dogs, or for show friendly dispositions or massive size.
Dog shows are not evil, breeders who care about only winning a dog show sacrifice the dogs natural ability in the process
We show 3-4 X a year to show our dogs are stable in public and working dogs can beat show dogs.
Being the best of the best has made us many a enemy but much more admirers.
We started 15 years ago by importing "WORKING Stock" vs show dogs. Boy that pissed quite a few people. We used spay & neuter to substitute natural selection & culling .
We adhered to the working standard & bred for the 'strong distrust of strangers , must be amendable to handling" .
A must is - allowing natural selection to weed out the weakest. We do not use modern science to correct what nature selected against.
Dog cant work or needs surgery to breed or whelp we do NOT breed the dog.
Our ultimate goal to alter as little as possible a group of dogs.
That were created through natural selection thousands of years ago .
Thus preserving & maintaining vs. altering the dog of legends.
Simply if it aint broke why fix it or in the USA "improve"?
