. . . .

amidst the light that burnt
i thought of the mighty seas
like scratches on the lands
we covered the empty graves
of wind and rain we'd sing
and bones told our stories
we imagined fire in the trees
and the sound of many waters

My DARPG KennelName: Fortezza | Prefix: F. 
All dogs are just prospects. This means that not all of the below-listed dogs are kept for breeding. I have an active breeding program, which doesn't mean I actively breed. I continue to build and always keep back one or more puppies from each litter. Because of that, I bring together only the best combinations. I'm always thinking about the future and how they will contribute to the breed. When they are old enough and health tested, some will come up for stud services. But I don't accept to just any old bitch. I have regulations which help keep Fortezza blood clean.
I do NOT breed against the standard. I take everything into consideration. Seriously. Health, temperament, conformation, soundness, structure, proportion, disposition, reaction, protection ability, working ability, drives, interspecies dominance, color, height, propensity towards attaching to humans or dogs, etc.

linebreeding faqWhy do you linebreed? It makes sick dogs.
This is actually a common myth. It COULD make sick dogs, but line/inbreeding in itself doesn't. What results from an inbreeding (whether you believe it's "disgusting" or not) is a litter with increased homozygosity, meaning "similarity." That's it. Line/inbreeding (I'll just use the inbreeding term, since linebreeding IS inbreeding anyway, just a slower version) intensifies the genes of the line or dog one is inbreeding upon.
This can obviously be done unethically but is also done very ethically for the betterment of the breed, as long as that which one is inbreeding upon (a stud, bitch, or a bloodline), is an EXCELLENT example of the breed, top notch health, ability to produce better than itself, as close to the standard as possible in temperament and conformation, and other aspects. So, it can definitely intensify BAD traits as well, such as hip joint looseness, bad eyes, bad coat, size, anything really. Inbreeding upon somethin

I follow the Kennel-Club point and titling system. That doesn't necessarily mean I agree/disagree with everything the club agrees/disagrees with; it is just a common system that many others use. It is consistent and fair in my opinion. I do not, however, use the health system. I had a health test club (ODAKHC) before the Kennel Club opened a health testing system, so I use my own value generator. I use the OFA/PennHIP grading system and take breed and genetics into consideration.
