You sit her and tell everyone to adhere to "the code of ethics" yet in another post you were talking with a girl about a guy that bred dogs that had 3 different breeds in them! And said that he had very nice dogs and that they had a good pedigree etc etc etc. Im pretty sure that the code of ethics doesnt agree with breeding mutts.

To me good breeders have a reason for breeding. Money is not an issue. Now that I have Ollie.... I would love to know his background and how he came to be. He's my 1st " Mutt ".... having no dew claws really makes me wonder. He's definitely mostly Retriever of some type , if not completely . The Poodle on PetFinder I feel was because of his curls.

I personally am not entirely against breeding mixed breeds of a certain "type" for a working purpose. Mixed breeds are bred quite often to produce working sheepdogs, for example.

If people breed mixes for a working purpose, do extensive health testing and breed ONLY dogs that are WORKING dogs (not just people breeding their pet mixes "because she *could* work if she had the chance") I still consider them responsible. Would I do it? No.. I think there are enough pure breeds out there to fulfill most needs and I would prefer working towards the improvement of a single breed. However, I don't see a problem with breeding sound working dogs of any breed/mix if the breeder sees to it that all of the puppies are placed in good homes.

RD... I agree with you to a certain point. That's how we have all our breeds today . Again... I wonder of the purpose of my Ollie's breeding. As a stray with no dew claws .... why ???

I honestly don't see much, if any Poodle in Ollie. It's possible that he was from an "oops" litter or bred for field work, as I would think that they cross certain breds for retrieval work too?

If only rescue dogs could talk, eh?

I kind of figured that. In general, though, unless you're talking about some particular agricultural topic, I've always understood 'the northeast' to imply not the rural areas of, say, upstate New York or Vermont or Maine, but the huge, densely populated and influential urban areas of NYC, Philly, Boston, etc.
