 Name of Breed---D'lyin-Ebert



Name is derived from the fact that this dog just lies. If it is not lying, its hindquarters are plopped down against the closest ledge or wall for help in supporting its rather largus hindquarters. It cannot bark, but instead a high pitched squeal of deafening volume eminates from its more than adequate vocal chords. It vocalizes with many different irritating sounds including yaps, shrieks and an unlimited variety of squeels. To say this breed is extremely noisy is an understatement! The D'lyin-Ebert is certainly too nervous and high strung to be around children.


The D'Lyin Ebert has a hard time coping, and thus resorts to the ear-deafening squeels.

Height, Weight

Typically excessive for its stature, with bulk of weight resting below hips. Feed lightly as it tends to gain weight very easily.

Health Problems

They sometimes suffer paralysis in the hindquarters as a result of years spent with their hindquarters supported by walls. Indiscriminate breeding has lead to hereditary hip problems leading to acute lameness and arthritis. Beware of hip dysplasia. Also prone to CHD, gastric torsion, ectropion, PPM, vaginal hyperplasia, elbow dysplasia and PRA.

Living Conditions

This breed does not function well with children, or young adults.


Even moderate exercise will cause trick knee to develop.

 Life Expectancy

Excessive inbreeding has resulted in a much shorter lifespan


Grooming is a total waste of time, since the D'Lyin-Ebert looks the same before and after. The breed should be bathed rarely, only once or twice a year to avoid skin oil depletion.



Its first use was hunting rats. Originally it was thought that these dogs came from a cross between the Jackal or Jackal/Wolf. Scientists now believe that they first originated in Eurasia, between 12000-14000 year ago, from a smaller southern strain of a Gray Wolf called, Canis Lupus Pallipes, which can still be found in India today. Although called the "Gray Wolf," the coat comes in a wide variety of coat colors. It was distributed throughout Europe, North America, and Asia. Some other possible ancestors of the dog include the Woolly Wolf of North India and Tibet, and the Desert Wolf of the Middle East. Like other crosses, the first dogs were the result of unplanned mating,
