Default UK Vulnerable/Endangered Native Breeds

Once they are gone - poof - they've gone forever.

Its breaks my heart to know that my own dog's breed, the Irish Water Spaniel are endangered and threatened with extinction.

I was surfing today and found this supplement which I found interesting - I didn't realise just how many UK native breeds are on the endangered list.

So sad, I love smooth collies, they have brilliant temperaments - better than Roughs in general. I guess everyone wants the luxurious coats when they get a collie. I'm sorely tempted by a smooth at some point though!

I didn't realise the Sussex, Field and Clumber spaniels were on there either. There's a guy we see almost every evening that has a sussex spaniel that Simba plays with, he's a real cutie.

I'd happily have one of each, lol.

You'd happily have ever one of every dog LOL - like me!

But seriously, it does bring it home just how many dog breeds are threatened with extinction!

It is heartbreaking, especially as some of the breeds on there are really lovely ones. I'm a spaniel lover at heart and it is awful to see so many spaniel breeds on there.

I was sad to read what they said about the IWS and being the 'funny poodle' which has affected its popularity.

It is a real worry , if we where to see some of these breeds disappear.... sadly with so many new breeds coming into our country from across the world, things will always suffer..people want what is new...

But on the other hand..maybe if we publisized them more, they would do better...but then they may become over popular..

But you have to remember a few are on the list, because they dont make good house dog.... some are a little primitive for the average householder....I..E the Otter Hound, Blood hound (although they have been removed from the list) but still a diifercult breed to own..

The breeders of these breeds will work tirelessly I am sure to make sure they never disappear.

There is a lady who breeds smooth collies near me, her dogs are fabulous, and so well behaved , even the puppies, puts the rest to shame when she takes them to ring craft.
