No there is a LOT more to it than that. Mixing two purebreds does not create a new breed, far from it. Do please have a look at that other thread, I think it is better explained there.

Yikes, I opened a can of worms, but sure didn't mean too.

Now to try and get back to what I really wanted to know when I asked this.

How it all started was when I asked what a lurcher and a longdog are since these are not terms known in the states. If you look at the link I put in the start of this post, both are listed and both have a purpose to the cross that created them.

So in my curiousity, I was asked if crosses were made in the state to make a working dog that combines certain traits of the two breeds. For instance, if you look up longdogs in my link, it is said that the longdog cross of a deerhound and a greyhound appears to be the foundation of the American stagehound, which is used as a coyote dog. And this is actually a dog we need in the states since coyotes are now being seen in areas that are not known to be their natural habitat, including the back fields behind my house in northern Ohio, we now have a very active breeding population of coyotes and there have been attacks on humans in my area, granted they were rabid, but the fact still remains that coyotes are spreading fast in the states, thus the need for a dog that is made to hunt them.

Anyhow, I didn't want to get into discussions about crossing breeds for money or how to make a new breed, we do have other threads that cover those topics, I just wanted to know about a few select dogs bred to perform a special job and the reasons those breed were chosen, just like what my link said about lurchers and longdogs.

As I posted before, there are crosses that I know of in the US. The rough collie/shepherd mix is known to make a great farm dog, and people breed for that cross. And I believe there is a sled dog cross that is also popular, but cannot remember which breeds are crossed for it.

There are people who have a sheep farm down the road from us who got themselves a BC/ Rough Collie mix to herd their sheep. Unforunately it didn't work out, Buddy couldn't be less interested in the sheep!
