Red Legged Yorkshire Terriers

I just recently noticed on a site where a breeder is breeding a Red Legged Yorkie female to a champion AKC male. Guess I am wondering why someone would want to pass that trait on? :confused:

^_^:
I have read the reason for doing this is to keep the color's in the future
litters more brilliant.

I did notice on this particular site the sire has very nice coloring, so I do not believe that the color of the coat in the puppies is why it is being done.

Its said that a red leg can purify the coloring in the golds, eliminating any intermingled coloring. By second generation you should be able to acheive a deep rich gold/deep blue silk with very little color variance.
BTW :D thanks for visiting my website I just posted the breeding with Hannah and Buster around 11:00pm last night...Its my first breeding with Hannah and I am very excited to see what this may bring. If you have any further questions about why I bred them please feel free to email me directly at yorkiepassion@comcast.net

Thank you for clarifying the reason.

^_^:
What is a red legged Yorkie? :confused:

^_^:
ive never even heard of such a thing

Just out of curiousity, are you a breeder? I am a hobby breeder and only breed maybe once a year.

If you have any further questions about why I bred them please feel free to email me directly at yorkiepassion@comcast.net I was not referring to your breeding. I seen this on another site and we have been speaking about it on a breeding list I belong to. But now you have confused me more. I do not mean anything personal by this, but I do not feel that your Hannah is of breeding quality and that has nothing to do with her being a red legged yorkie. By looking at her picture she does not meet the AKC standard. That is just my personal opinion and please do not take anything personal from it.

I mean no disrespect but I don't think this comment is appropriate. In fact, I don't think it's very nice either. You should PM her. If someone said something like this to me on a PUBLIC FORUM (if I was a breeder), I'd be offended. It is better to PM something like this so that no one's feelings are hurt or embarrassed. :)

If someone said something like this to me on a PUBLIC FORUM (if I was a breeder), I'd be insulted.

How can you NOT take a rude comment like that personally?:thumbdown
