I think the issue here is not individual dogs, but overall dog welfare. These people buying mixes like Maltese/Poodle mixes, or Labrador/Poodle mixes, are just supporting "breeders" who real dog people work so hard to protest against. By producing more illicet dogs shelter dogs continue to die. I am a breeder, but I also rescue and offer certain guarentees on my pups, as any good breeder should. I also own 2 dogs taken out of puppy mills, my male Bernese Mtn dog I pulled out myself, my little Yorkshire Terrier came to me after his vet bills were rediculously high and the shelter who took him in needed help.

According to the Humane society of the US about %75-80 of dogs in animal shelters are mixes, so aren't there enough mixed breeds already?
