Breeds unrecognized FCI

When I began to be interested in breeds, unrecognized FTsI, I realized that, in essence, breeds not recognized by FTsI are MORE than recognized ones. Virtually every country in the world (except the most backward) has its own breeds, long established and traditionally bred in these countries. Many of the breeds recognized by the FCI have their unrecognized “twin” breeds — closely related and very similar phenotypically.
Many of the unrecognized breeds are very monotypic, homogeneous and have an extensive breeding base. For example, the same Russian hound. Or Catahoula, a leopard dog from Louisiana. She is unrecognized by the FCI, in Europe these dogs are women, but in Louisiana you will find such dogs on almost every farm. For their future is not worth fear. But many ancient breeds of European hunting dogs are on the verge of extinction. Not because they are not recognized by the FCI, they are officially recognized. But because the conditions for hunting with such dogs have practically disappeared in Europe, and as a companion they cannot compete with traditional breeds of companion dogs.
KATAHULA-Leopard louisiana dog.
They are called catahula because these dogs appeared and are spread around the lake Catahoula, in Louisiana. They are called a leopard dog not because they were hunting leopards with them, although in principle such a hunt would be possible. Catahula is a gambling and fearless dog, a descendant of the aggressive pickling dogs of the Spaniards. In the swamps of Louisiana with them still hunt for wild boars.
Most likely, the spotting of the dog is associated with the leopard; the colors with the merle factor are the most common. But this is not the only color, there are also monochromatic dogs of different colors, breeders try to avoid matings between partners with the merle factor. From such a combination can be born deaf puppies.
Catahula, unlike many hounds and gun dogs, is larger and more massive. The presence among the ancestors of the moloss and the Greyhound has an effect. It is a universal working dog, it serves as a guard and for livestock, but also for hunting.
But then I began to dig and realized (and not only me, but also many more people, from that and questions from them) that there are several UCI representative offices in Russia (this is not a crime, that’s what was intended). Only now some of them cover others, those others are silent, are not justified, but exhibitions are held and people want to know if their certificates will be valid later? In general, the idea of ​​the UCI is excellent, but, as always, the human factor. Discord, divide, etc.
So. Today we have: allegedly the official representative of the UCI in Russia – “Good World”. And the UCI’s general representative for the North-West is Nika with the Powders (club). The first write that the second illegals. All because the second left the Good World. In general, I am ready to believe that the exit is not criminal, since we personally went through such a break up according to ideological convictions and were later called to the whole world as rascals and swindlers. It’s exactly the same here. However … what do people do?
Found a link where they hide this world, because This organization makes its own pedigrees (!) – Charm-Charm. Already doubtful.
And yet, another exhibition in St. Petersburg – the Baltic Championship. And as the general representative of the UCI for the NW RF writes, all exhibitions are only with their permission (logical), and these gentlemen are neither in their sleep nor in spirit. And people are recorded. I almost went to this Baltic Championship myself, I called there, all chiki-bunches. Sorry, for slang.
And here we all curse boxers, dealers.
Not … That’s where the goldmine is! Exhibitions. I will go, perhaps, there. And then in vain that they write that we are scoundrels-dealers. Not. Reforged. We will now be engaged in exhibitions :))
