You guys are mixing up everything.

I have a mutt, and I love him just as much as my purebred. What we're saying is that BREEDING mutts is wrong, not that mutts are. It's NOT the same at all! Furthermore, I'm sure we would all support breeding mutts in a perfect world where lots of them didn't already need homes. But it's not the case, just the rescue I got my mutt from (at 8 weeks) always have over 15 mutt puppies for adoption... and they're far from being the only ones. So why add more?

And please, we all know that if people hadn't bred mutts in the past we wouldn't have so many breeds now. The difference is that at the time people bred with the goal of making a breed that would have some particularities, whereas now 99% of the breeders who breed mutts do it just to make money. I'm really tired of hearing the same argument over and over, when it's totally obvious that all the doodles and other poos are only bred because they're popular and people want to make money out of them. The only attempt at making a breed I've seen is in Australia with labradoodles, and so far it hasn't been succesful. So please just get informed before you give an inaccurate argument...

Congratulations Gallien Jacks you really do know how to generalise with the best of them. Have you even read my other posts? They're really controversial such terrible things as what's your favourite breed.

I posted because this is a topic that has been getting on my nerves when reading this forum. People are far too quick to just go off on bashing people breeding crosses.

As to people not trying to better the breed these days by using crosses, how do you explain short tailed boxers? This was bringing corgi blood into boxer lines. Or an even more recent example http://www.australianbulldogs.com/ this is a program to breed a traditional looking bulldog without the medical complaints of a normal english bulldog. Yes they do this by cross breeding dogs.

I am not in any way saying that people making money out of pumping out rubbish poodle crosses is right, in fact I think you'll find I said that in the previous post. What I am saying is that the behaviour of the people on this forum going on about cross breeding is just about as useful as all of the doodle breeders.

Your dancing around what we're really talking about here. Im not talking about Australian Bulldogs because yes that makes sense because it is for the good of the dogs health.

BUT thats not what we're talking about here we're talking about people breeding these so called "designer dogs" who do more then most come up with health problems.

Ok quick question to you just to Josh
Do you agree with breeding "Designer Dogs"? (im not saying you do or don't im just asking).

Please, I have shown the respect to read what others have had to say rather than just spouting off on my chosen line of argument, if others could do the same that would be great.

Well I actually have already read those but i was asking the question for others so they could see that simply No you didn't or yes you did. I was not rude to you but you have to me and you havent read any of my posts im sure as this is the first time ou have replied to me when I have already adressed you. I was going to try and be nice but hell you've gone and ruined that.

Default Wow

You people on this forum are sure against mutts arnt you....yes there is alot of cross breeding going on right now but alot of it is to get these little dogs, it probably is just a trend, but it seems everyone wants these little dogs and Im sure that everyone that ends up getting one will love them to death, they wont end up in the pound. Most of the dogs in the pound are the big breeds purebreed and mutts, usually because they were cute when they were little but they got so big or because of behaviour problems, very few small dogs end up in the pound.

Mutts have there problems but so do purebreed dogs, you get what you get, just like humans. Alot of the people on this forum dont really have a real good argument on not getting a mixed breed other than there are alot of dogs in the pound, I looked in the pound and never have I found what I was looking for. I guess when my daughter decides to have a child I should tell her she shouldnt have one because there are alot of children in the world to be adopted, it is really the same thing. There are alot of people that shouldnt have dogs and that is why they end up in the pound, but mixed breeds have been around as long as I can remember, and have made excellent pets so why do you people come down on them so much.
