why do you have to cross breed them when a poodle itself can make a perfect assistance dog. I think its an insult to the poodles.

I agree! I think it's just the latest "breeders' fad" which will soon get bred wrong (there's a certain sequence of how they get bred) and they'll end up some freak b@st@rd breed like most popular breeds with all their problems from being overbred and forcing their breed...

I agree with everyone opposing this issue. The breeders are dealing with fire here. And what about the minature labradoodles? Geeesh, just the mental picture is horrible in my mind? Breeders shouldn't cater to what people want. They really should have an ethical oath/responsibility not to mix breeds just to profit by catering to the potential "buyer". Almost like cloning either animals or humans... just ethically wrong.

I'm glad to hear your friend is looking at a Standard Poodle. I think they get overlooked by a lot of people because the only time we see them that we're aware of them is in shows with that gawdawful goofy looking clip.

As far as shelter "mutts" go, all but my first German Shepherd, Purdue, were either from the shelter or, in Bimmer's case, he's a rescue someone abandoned at a farm. They've been fabulous German Shepherds; Bear was a GSD/Akita mix and he was just a one in a million dog. Oddly enough, I've never had a single genetic health problem with any of them, and you know how many horror stories you hear about overbred German Shepherds.
