The Crossbreed Dog
From the time of distant prehistory until the XIX century, during hundreds of thousands of years, the dog has always been a crossbreed
It is certain that from the Egyptian graves and the Greek bas-reliefs give testimony from the existence of similar dogs to some of the officially races at the moment, as the galpo or the dachshund, but the artist was reproducing dogs that interested him from an artistic point of view, that is to say, crossbreed, but beautiful dogs (that maybe were raised and selected in the court) and they probably idealized them. But through the centuries and in the entire world, the man's friends multiplied without any control. The lupoides dog's , foxy and type harrier crossed without a rigorous approach. It was enough that a male demonstrates to be a good hunter so that a crossing was done with a dog of the same characteristics, with the hope that then the puppies confirmed the good instincts of the parents. Alone in the islands, or in the vast rural possessions of the Middle Age, contained inside by impassable limits, the dogs didn't have possibilities to cross with different races and, therefore, they continued procreating similar puppies, as much in the form as in the character. But nobody worried a lot about the aesthetics.
In the Rebirth, the men understood that to obtain good guard dog or of hunt it was necessary to select them diligently and that the qualities of a hunter were closely bound to the aesthetic appearance, they began, mainly in the courts, the first empiric selections. There they were organized fabulous hunts and the necessity to possess animals able to show the teeth when they were ordered to do it. And from that time - the XVI century - one believes kind of a social inequality among the dogs begin: the beautiful dogs of the rich and the ugly dogs of the poor.
In spite of the progresses of the civilization, although the arts and the letters improved in a certain sense to the men, although the social structures were being ordered, it is necessary to give a jump of three centuries and to arrive to the XIX century so that the man, besides delighting classifying the races and creating other new ones, tries to defend with some laws for the animals that suffered bad treatments, they were dedicated to sanguinary games or exploded cruelly. The Great Britain was the first nation that prohibited the cruel combats between dogs and bulls and of dogs.
The love for the dogs, the desire to possess dogs of race and of winning prizes with them increase at the beginning of century. Alone the wars broke the enthusiasm and it interrupted the breeding. But the subdivision of the canine world in about the three hundred races, the foundation of clubs that they took care of their prerogatives, the creation of hatcheries with reproducers of great lineage, the organization of exhibitions, they have not meant the end of the crossbreed dog. But well, they have transformed it in a byproduct. Although it can be justified from an aesthetic point of view, it is the worst thing that one can say from the moral point.
