    lol.....that's what he looks like. It looks like someone put a golden in the dryer and shrunk him. The vet says he has "classic cocker spaniel paws", and he has the coloring of a long-haired daschund.

    Its nothing about the name and all about the breeding.

    I have a mutt and love her to death.

    If mutts are bred for a real purpose(pets not being one of them-I mean like farm work) I don't mind eitheir. Some of the best working dogs are mixes. But It depends on each individual basis-but as far as pets go there are enough mutts in shelters for pets-they don't need to be bred.

    People buy designer breeds because they dont want to tell people they own a mix or a mutt they want to say the stupid names and to get that perplexed look from people and prompted to explain what the dog is and why they got it.

    When if you say oh its a mutt you dont get the attention you do with a schnoodle.

    Even the shelters will keep a designer breed around that is just a mutt because the public wants these mixes and backyard breeders line up to not have to meet any ethics to breed them, no clubs , no meets, not testing.

    Whats is a name is how they are SOLD...

    My brothers Schnoodles has seizures $500 Pet store mutt.
    And I ripped into him like I would do anyone who did a impulse buy like this..
