I am not looking for a race

Dog 5(Horizon)

“The offspring from the first cross between two pure breeds is tolerably and sometimes … extremely uniform, and everything seems simple enough; but when these mongrels are crossed with another for several generations, hardly two of them will be alike, and then the extreme difficulty, or rather utter hopelessness, of the task becomes apparent. Certainly, a breed intermediate between two very distinct breeds could not be got without extreme care and long-continued selection; nor can I find a single case on record of a permanent race having been thus formed.”
                                                                                    -Charles Darwin

Well that’s good for me. I am not looking for a race, I am looking for one individual mongrel who has genetic components of each of his pedigree ancestors.
