Angry What's in a name?

Why do some of you get so bent out of shape when people give a dog a title like, schnoodle, puggle or bug. You know that they are half one breed and half another, its just a shorter title.

I know that I'm going to get a lot of slack from people for this post but some of you need to lay off when someone says they have a "bug" let it be. Thats what their happy with, you don't need to tell them what they already know, that their dog is a Boston-pug mix.

For all dog people... just because their dogs are mixes, mutts, or they fell in love with a puppy that didn't come from a well known breeder doesn't mean you should rub their face in it. A dog needs a chance no matter what it is and where it comes from.

We get the point but obviously the people that keep posting this dont get the point we are trying to make

I think this quote says it perfectly

There is nothing about creating an actual new breed, just more money for the breeders/pet shops/mills, etc.

New breeds are created with a final intent and purpose in mind, and do not simply mean the same F1 to F1 breeding that encompasses most "new breeds" breeding program. Even those few breeds you posted that were created out of two breeds like the Wheaten were part of a careful program that had a set list of attributes in mind and only those dogs that met those attributes were bred from to create the next generation. This is very, very rarely done these days.

I can see how some people, especially those who have only been here for a short time, could get the impression that we as a board are "anti-mutt" but again, it's really "anti-idiot" that we are.

Some of the cutesy names really drive me up the wall. Sorry.

Though I understand it's often said in a joking manner. I used to call Buster a "Goldador Retriever". What irritates me is when I see a dog and know what it is, ask the owners if it's a Cocker/Poodle mix, and have them get all huffy and say "She's actually a COCKAPOO, thankyouverymuch."

I think the name is what they pay for....since those dogs are very "in". Imagine someone thinking your Armani outfit was from Sears?

I agree with you, by the way, but that's just what I think.

I think it's mostly to educate people...because the average person does NOT really understand that their cockapoo is a cocker/poodle mix...they think they have an actual breed.

I refuse to use those names. My dog is a bichon/poodle mix, not a "bichpoo". I don't think they are just a shorter way of saying what you have, otherwise people with GSD/lab mixes would say they have a German shepador...people honestly believe their designer dogs are actual breeds, and I think the whole point of a forum like this is to educate people.

True very true It is hard for many to understand that the dog is not pure. I had a customer come into our grooming shop stating that he had a purebred black Irish setter. I really did not want to hurt the guys feeling by telling him he had a black lab irish setter. That there was no such thing as a black irish setter. It would have been nothing but a arguement all the way to the bank. So I shut the door on that one right away. He just did not seem to be the type of person that wanted to be educated at all
