King of the ring: why would no responsible breeder do this?
someone i'm assuming just a troll or someone preaching off a soap box they know nothing about said that my cousin wouldnt be able to have two show pups of different breeds at around the same time possibly 4-6 months apart so there wouldnt be a huge age gap.
get one at the appropriate age then another dog in 4-6 months at around the age the other dog was when it would be brought home so there isnt an astronomical age gap.
because no responsible breeder would give a sighthound pup for show into a home with another breed of sighthound at around the same age.
what is this milarky?
my cousin is getting an ibizan in 2 years or less and possibly one of the following
borzoi, italian greyhound. whippet or pharaoh hound. (which do you think would do best with the ibizan? since they are known for anemia rough play is bad..which do you think would be the best playmate?)
she doesnt want to have 2 of the same breed (which they also said was unusual ...but it isnt) because she wants to show her dogs herself and cant very well have two leads at once...i dont see anything wrong with showing one breed then crating it or leaving it with a family member on the sideline and show the other in another ring.
O.o am i the only one to see this reasoning of this person as odd?
what about that is odd?
my cousin could easily care for the dogs ...they would have plenty of room 70+ acres, high game fence...rabbits and RAW diet...and wants to show and do lure with her dogs..she is crazy for dogs.
would you as a responsible breeder reject that kind of home?
herding dog lover: thank you yes that was my cousin she's awesome i saw that answer and said WTH?? then she deleted it because she didnt want to hear any more bubkus i assume she doesnt like it when ppl just like to try and bash others and in giving no information and just calling her a fool and mocking her well there ya go.

I would think that your cousin should first get known a lil bit in the show ring with the first dog, and proove that he understands the work invovled in showing, and then consider persuing a second show dog (I would reccommend this even if he was looking to get two of the same breed).
2 puppies close together is not an easy task, and not reccommended. When you raise young pups together, they tend to bond more closely with each other, and not so much with human family members.
There are several reputable breeders that have 2 breeds, so, there's no reason why he'd be rejected for already having a show dog of a different breed. However, if the breeder feels he's unable to handle 2 pups at this time, he may be rejected for that reason.
Easier to get your hands on a show dog when you get yourself known abit first.
