    on petfinder alone pretty good argument for not breeding mutts don't you think??? :(

    IMO all breeding should be heavily licensed and strictly monitored until such time as we are not killing 5 million animals a year in the USA.

    Look I honestly couldn't agree with you more - I really couldn't. The reason I started this thread in the first place was because of exactly the kinds of situations you describe. I wasn't trying to start a fight! Sorry....

    And I agree about all breeding being heavily licensed. I guess being fairly new to the site you wouldn't yet have seen all the threads and arguments about the awful doodle craze sweeping the world. I am always involved in those threads because I have Labradoodles.

    But happily I must say, I think I have been instrumental on this site at least of singling out Labradoodles as a dog that has a real chance of becoming recognised as a breed, and that is what a lot of this thread is about. It unfortunately won't stop money-hungry puppy millers from producing hundreds of F1 crosses, and I agree with you entirely.

    However, I find the word `mutt' offensive, particularly in the context within which you used it, no matter what dog it is applied to, and I feel that there are more polite ways of expressing one's views. Perhaps that's what I'm really disagreeing with, because I certainly don't disagree with your opinion. :)

    Well I am glad we agree:p
    Mutt is an affectionate term for any mix breed dog for me. Mutt, mongrel, mix hybrid etc... call it what you will. I love mutts... all of em... even the pure breds:lol-sign:

    I think maybe that's different where I live. I know it's not supposed to be derogatory, but it's certainly used that way where I'm from. However, I drift from the point (as I often do)... :D
