你好,我是斯蒂芬,我是快禅。

And this is Vanta, Vanta is a graceful 7 month old, female Formosan Mountain Dog.

悠悠娱乐_[官网入口]这是 Vanta,Vanta 是一只优雅的7个月大的台湾母犬。

Well actually she''s a Taiwan Dog with a lot of Formosan blood in her, but she''s as close

其实她不是一只纯种台湾土狗,但她是我们能

to a Formosan as we can get.

找到的与台湾岛土狗血统最相近的狗了。

Nobody knows if there are any pure-blood Formosans left, unfortunately her breed has been cross-bred,

没人知道台湾到底还有没有纯种血统的台湾土狗,不幸的是,历经多次杂交,

harvested for food, not cared about

加上被用来狩猎和不被重视,



As the sea levels rose and Taiwan became an island, the dogs were cut off from the mainland

随着海平面上升,台湾变成了一个岛屿,这些狗被切断了与大陆的联系

and evolved into a breed

进化成了一个

perfectly adapted to hunting the harsh terrain of of ancient Taiwan.

In the early 1600s when the Dutch colonized Taiwan, They valued the fur of the native

十七世纪初,彼时荷兰殖民台湾,他们视岛上

悠悠娱乐_[官网入口]的梅花鹿皮为宝贝。

The Dutch brought their own hunting dogs with them to hunt the deer,

于是荷兰人带来了他们用来猎鹿的猎狗,

which are believed to have been Greyhounds or Pointers.

这些猎狗指的是荷兰灰狗和指示狗。

The Dutch didn''t like to compete with the indigenous tribes for the deer pelts so they

荷兰人不喜欢和台湾当地部落争夺鹿皮,所以

slaughtered many Formosans and forbade the indigenous Taiwanese from owning dogs.

During this period the Dutch dogs bred with the Formosans and introduced their genes to

China eventually sent troops to the island to expel the Dutch and claim the island as

As Taiwan''s economy grew, they imported many new breeds of dogs, but there was no effort

随着台湾经济的增长,日本人又引进了许多新品种的狗,但没有采取任何

to keep the Formosan breed intact, so the introduced breeds widely bred with

保护台湾土狗血统完整性的措施,于是日本狗广泛繁殖

and changed the Formosan breed forever.

并且永远杂化了台湾土狗的血统

In the late 70''s Dr. Sung Yung-Yi realized the Formosan breed was on the edge of extinction

在1970年代末期,宋永义博士意识到台湾品种濒临灭绝

and organized a campaign to go deep into the Taiwan mountains to see if there were any

pure blood Formosans left.

with a request to breed and protect the Formosan Mountain Dog he was met with an unsympathetic

要求其协助繁育和保护台湾狗时,却遭遇了一种冷酷无情

culture in Taiwan that wasn''t interested in this incredible breed that evolved on their island.

台湾文化,就是对这种在台湾岛上进化出来的难以置信的品种不感兴趣。

So no rehabilitation program was launched and today there is debate about whether pure

blood Formosans still exist or not.

种台湾土狗是否仍然存在的争论。

But there are a small handful of breeders in Taiwan who are attempting to bring the breed

但是在台湾有一小部分育种者试图复育台湾土狗

back through a closed breeding program.

通过封闭种群项目(引种于某亲本或同源亲本)
