Ok, I don't want to get totally flamed here, but I have a question.... I've read a million reasons why mixed breeds on purpose are a bad idea... too many dogs, etc. Then why is it ok to breed dogs of the same breed? if this world is too full of animals without homes, why continue to populate? And if you truly don't make any money or benefit from breeding ,say, 2 champion labs, b/c of vet costs, then why do it at all? IMO,and it's just IMO, there are too many unwanted animals, and I just can't see in my mind why it's ok to continually overpopulate with'breeds" vs. just regular old mutts,and spaying etc as needed... Please don't yell at me! I don't breed dogs, never will, but i also am not into 'breeds' as being so special! To me a good dog is a good dog, and they're all valuable to their families! and on petfinder.com, there are literally 1000's of purebreeds,and my mutts will never be up there, if I got 10 more mixes, i'd spay and care for them.same as if I got 10 more and they were pure... isn't it all, when you get right down to it, us humans meddling where we maybe have no right to? For instance,what makes someone,a breeder of poodles superior to a breeder of pekepoos? in 20 years, those pekepoos will probably be recognized anyway... and in the end, they're just dogs,if they have responsible owners, they'll be cared for, if not, they'll end up homeless.
