Purebred


Written By: Ehsan Jahandarpour

Purebreds are “cultivated varieties” of an animal species achieved through the process of selective breeding. When the lineage of a purebred animal is recorded, that animal is said to be “pedigreed”. Purebreds breed true-to-type which means the progeny of like-to-like purebred parents will carry the same phenotype, or observable characteristics of the parents.
