First let's explain what a Selective Breed is. In Petz, you are able to breed petz to create offspring. Just like with real life, you can breed selectively for generations upon generations, weeding out unwanted traits and perpetuating desirable ones. And eventually, you can end up with a Breed. For something to be a true finished Selective Breed, it has to meet a few requirements.
It has to have little variation among traits like ear type, foot, type, etc. You don't want your short haired dog to occasionally have sheepdog feet or tails. I mean, unless you do. A little wanted variation is fine. Even real life breeds have that. But each specimen should be identifiable as the same breed.
The breed needs to breed true. This means that when you breed two of them, they should not produce anything outside the wanted traits of the breed.
Selective breeds can take a long time to perfect. The ability to speed up time means that in theory, it could take a single real life day. But it still will take many many generations.
Selective breeding almost always requires inbreeding. While some petz players may attempt to avoid inbreeding, that makes it much harder to do. And is not how real breeds are made. Real life breeds use careful inbreeding and linebreeding to help produce a breed. Without it, you are looking at much more work and it may never result in something that breeds true.
I've actually made a lot of selective breeds, but some were lost in computer crashes, others were made in Petz 5 and I no longer use that version. On this page you will find my most recent Selective Breeds.
Rules when owning a Rogue Kennelz Selective Breed
These rules apply to MY Selective Breeds. Other people may have different rules for theirs.
- When you adopt a pet from a Selective Breed from me, keep RK in the show name
- When you adopt a pet from a Selective Breed from me, credit me for the creation of that pets' line and breed
- If you breed two pets from the same selective breed of mine together, credit me for the creation of the offspring's line and breed
- If you breed a pet from a Selective Breed of mine with a pet not from that same breed, you don't need to credit me for those offspring's line and breed, even if the result looks like my Selective Breed. It would be nice to be mentioned, but certainly not required.
- If you create a pet or Selective Breed of your own, DO NOT label it as one of my Selective Breed creations. You made it. It's yours. If you took inspiration from mine, a shout out would be nice, but is NOT required.
- If you use a pet from one of my Selective Breeds to create your own Selective Breed, a shout-out would be nice but is not required.
If you are interested in acquiring these breeds, you can let me know and I can see about getting you some.
