Maggie Lancaster, PA 10/20/2009 5:58:10 AM To those wanting agility information try cleanrun.com or akc.org or ukcdogs.com To the person who mentioned mixed breeds I have to say I welcome the plugs on purebreds! These days purebreds are getting the short end of the stick with all the plugs for adoption which are usually geared towards mixed breeds. (although there are plenty of purebreds who need homes too) I personally would not reccomend a mixed breed or rescue puppy for performance events as evaluating health and structure would be nearly impossible. You want a sound/healthy dog for the physical demands of agility. Weak knees, long backs, short upper arms, straight shoulders and other structural flaws can lead to injury and soundness issues in the future if the dog is jumping a lot such as in frisbee, agility, flyball. With a purebred you can evaluate the structure of parents/relatives and most likely have access to evaluating the puppy itself at 7 weeks of age to help assure avoidance of structural issues that could cause problems. Of course some people will jump their dog without care or concern for the dogs structure and long term soundness.
