When it comes to adopting or choosing a dog... do you prefer a pure breed or mixed? I wanted to get a pure breed siberian husky but thinking they were expensive and high maintenance... i opted for the siberian husky mix belgian malinois... i don’t regret my decision because now Sans such a sunshine to the family...

I like German Shepherds because Misty, my first dog, was a German Shepherd.

Pure breeds might be good because they are becoming more rarer these times. But of course there are several risk you have to consider since those pure breeds are adapted to their place of origin. So if you are getting one that is not similar to their environment you might get health issues with as they grow up. Additional vaccines might be needed so the dog can adapt to your climate.

@aseretdd Yeah they become sickly in our climate. I saw someone who bought industrial fan just for them to fan themselves when temperatures go up.

I really wanted to get a pure breed siberian husky... but i heard they don’t do well in hot climate... the best is one that is mixed with a different breed... so i ended with a siberian husky mix belgian malinois... got the best (and worst) of both worlds...

I don't mind about being mixed or full. My dog now is an American Rottweiler and she's amazing! She's so sweet, loyal and great with all little ones. =)

Mixed breeds are better as they have less health issues @aseretdd . Unfortunately because of what breeders have done, a lot of pure breds have Cancer, Heart Disease as well as many other things.

@aseretdd I had a lab-husky and would want either again or a golden retriever or lab retriever. I would not buy a dog. There are plenty of them around that need good homes.
