Excuse me but where did I say I bred for cuteness? Read the posts before making generilizations please.
A good temperment is a wellbred, trained and good-behaved dog that doesn't show aggression.Since when is this a bad temperment?
You breed for looks do you not? You take the cutest with the cutest, the best temperament with the best temperament... or am I wrong? OH and I said nothing about bad temperament.. I said what you "consider to be a good temperament."
Also, I do not give a puppy to the first person thats offers me a few dollars,there is a waiting list and that is a RESERVE Deposit.I only breed every 3 or 4 years, a bad owner would probably have been put off by the wait.
I email my potentiol homes, and often fix up a date to meet them at thier home.
Just because she breeds crosses doesn't make her a bad breeder. she may want a specific trait that she hasn't been able to type because of all the bashing. Some people breed 2 separate breeds together to get different traits. She tests her dogs and shows them. She is willing to take the pups she sells back if the buyer can not take care of it and she makes sure they go to good homes.
welcome goldendoodler and your pups are Cute and look healthy.
Probably doesn`t seem like a very warm welcome. It`s just that people here are very passionate about dogs and the welfare of them. You can`t be surprised that designer breeds are a subject of controversy in the dog world. Ethical and responsible breeding practises are something that we take very seriously, and when a someone claims to be a responsible breeder when they are breaking one of the first rules of breeding- BREED TO BETTER THE BREED, hackles get raised. You can`t breed to better the breed, you don`t have a breed standard to strive towards. Good temperments and health are important, but shelters are filled with these dogs.
You were offended by being called a BYB, well you are a breeder who breeds several different breeds and they are all mix breeds. What do you want us to think? That you are responsible when you are breeding several different crosses of dogs? I am sorry, I can't do that.
Why do you breed mixes instead of breeding a pure breed? What is it that goldenmixes and others can offer that the existing breeds can not?
Yes, your dogs are cute, and they look very healthy and loved. But you are breeding mutts and then charging huge amounts of money when our shelters are overflowing with the same mixes! You say you take back your pups if they can not stay in their home- so you are not contributing to the problem, but I disagree because you are contributing to the designer breed hysteria promoting the breeding of mixed breeds which in turn cause a greater influx of dogs in shelters.
