I have a whole new series of accounts with no dogs in them yet. I am looking for certain things in a breed.

Dogs are available at stud and for sale, or if no stud dogs up, breeders will put dogs up if asked.

Enough entries to make finishing a quality dog possible.

Players are civil to one another and enjoy seeing their dogs succeed with others.

If possible, a breed where other colour lines could be developed but are lacking…

So, which breeds should I choose? Which breeds need help?

Hi,
Come to Pembroke Welsh Corgis. I’m working on the feet/head trait but color could easily be incorporated into a program. I could start you off nicely, or take a look in the sale section.

Best,
Delia’s

Brussels Griffon! Lots to do in this breed. We have smooth and rough coats in red, black,belge, and Black and Tan with some of those colors hardly ever seen. Studs galore and sells are great. Shows are there and specialties aren’t a problem either. Check um out!

Check out Cane Corso, Harrier, Saluki, and Siberian Husky. There are many great breeds out there. I have 6 kennels and dabble in many breeds. Those are the ones I have that I think checks off all your boxes.

Welp I have:
Borzois, Irish wolfhounds, Australian terrier, Jack Russell’s, smooth fox terrier, amstaffs, skye terriers, wire Fox terriers, Rhodesian ridgebacks, Scottish terriers, rat terriers and Mudis (and quite honestly I may be forgetting a breed or two) in my family accounts and I am always happy to help someone new get started. Always put all my dogs up for stud (if someone is not just ask it’s not that I am not putting them up it’s that I forgot). If any of those breeds peak your interest PM me, I would be happy to get you started and depending on the breed I may have a nice breed ready female I would be willing to part with.
Good luck in finding your new breed!

Thanks cosmonauts! Appreciate the sentiment I always love helping people start out in a breed. And I enjoy showing against your Jack Russell’s, always give me a run for my money.
TR is also great with Rhodesians (and I’m sure with all their other breeds) if any of them catch your eye.

Ok, I'll join in - I have:

Americam and English Cockers, Weimaramers, Pointers, Labradors, 1 WireHaired Pointing Griffon

Greyhounds, Saluki, Pharaoh Hound, Harrier, Dachshund (Smooth, some Long and colours other than choco-tan), Basenji,

Wesh Terrier, Airedale, Fox Terrier (Smooth $ Wire)

Bearded Collie,

Boston Terrier

They are scattered around in various accounts.

If any interest you, let me know.

Most are in some sort of project - some are colour projects, some just a general breed rescue - so the SOPs may be lowish.

All studs are available, no approval, most at $25.

Wow! Such a wide variety of breeds and all breeds I like a lot. I will probably play in them all at some point. A few such as Siberians, Cane Corsi and Borzois I am already in. I will not have the time to set anything up until the weekend and I will be contacting those with the breeds I want to do first at that time. Thanks to everyone for the ideas! happy :)

I highly recommend just purchasing a pup in a breed and show it. You will quickly find out if a breed is the right fit for you. Usually, a nice male is easier to find since breeders can't keep them all, but I prefer picking a female since I can breed her later if I like the breed.

Chow Chows have almost no smooth coats anywhere anymore, & most dogs are either black or red. Blue, Cream & Cinnamon are hard to come by anymore.
I'll admit I played a part in that as my best Chow (in RL) was a rough coat black, & I've tried to breed for those only.
There's only a few active kennels as well.

You can darn near pick almost any breed now and it needs help and/or only has a few actively in the breed. As I work my way through the breeds for the 188 home-bred-champ in every breed quest, it is harder to find available dogs. I've saved some dogs before the former breeders left the game, and try to hand off the greater SOPs with a note to the forum if the breed is waning. If I've had to start over at source, I finish, FH, and move on to another breed.

Once I finish the quest, I will circle back around and pick one or two breeds to help rebuild. I want to thank so many of those that posted, as they have helped me in the quest along the way. So far, I've finished 149 out of 188 breeds, and have made many new friends to work with. The SD community is awesome!

German Shorthaired Pointers are in need! It’s just myself and one other player. When I came back to the game a month ago, this breed was completely dead with only starter dogs and one hidden stud available. Another player was able to get one bitch from a basic kennel and I was able to get them to breed the bitch and got several of her pups. So, it is definitely a project to take this one high SOP breeding (it looks like they were in the 99s for SOP prior to breeders leaving the game) and the starter dogs together for genetic diversity. I’d love more help to get this breed going again at a bit faster pace!
