Hello, I’m new to this page and I’ve been doing lots of research and had asked reputable registered breeders all about the breed. I guess I can say that I might have a little knowledge about the breed and genetics. So I just have a quick question, I know for in fact if a Canadian and Donskoy sphynx are outcrossed, most likely the kittens will die. So I was wondering, is it the same with outcrossing a Ukrainian Levkoy with a Canadian Sphynx? Will that outcrossing cause health issues on the kittens? It’s just as question to gain more knowledge.

Gosh I have no idea. I wonder there is someone out there who has experience with both breeds and would know the answer?

Honestly, I have done so much research and to me it sounds like a really bad idea. They are two completely different genes and they shouldn’t be crossed. If it’s dangerous to cross a Canadian with Donskoy, then it will also be dangerous for a Ukrainian Levkoy, Peterbald and Lykoi.
