    I guess my other problem is that you have worked in rescue yet purposely breed crosses. To me the two don't go together. JMO.
    Molly,
    You are missing 1 big point how dose me working rescue & breeding xbreeds that don't add to homeless dogs problem.
    Remember I do it for me personaly not to sell & those that do leave my family are desexed & to be returned to me if they can not keep them.
    I could not supply the right dogs from the pound. I have 3 reg therepy dogs & a diabetic support dog I have breed & they had to be a certain size & coat type without the energy of a poodle. Not an easy dog to find & toke over 9yrs to breed 1 the way I turned out as wanted.

    Hi Crazydog,

    funny...when i read your op i agreed with you straight away. one of the reason I did not consider Cocker Spaniels as my pet was "ear" issue.
    personally I do not understand why those cross breeds are desirable apart from poodles and cocker are very popular breeds (i.e. more marketable as cross breeds?)

    Hya-thanks for the info on the link and search engines.
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    I don't understand this either, they are both beautiful breeds in their right.

    Glad it's not just me then. I don't see how they can make all these assurances on puppies adult coat & temperment when I would not even do that with purbred pups. You know they will get to the point very soon where everything seems to throw back to grandparents & even great grandparents so it's way to soon to try & make a breed out of the cross even if I did think that was a good idea which I deffently don't.
    I was truely amazed at what I was reading & now I have found out there is 2 different clubs trying this..................

    Where did you source your breeding dogs from?
    As there are no guarantees with coat type, how did you know how the coat was going to turn out?

    My origanal dogs & any following new bloodlines or breeds to come in where all bought from poeple I could see had the same values as me. I was very picky as I needed the know very indepth pedigrees on some which some breeders just really don't know. Health testing was a must.
    A can garrentee coat type now as we are not talking a few generations of breeding here but 10. I get 2 coat types curly(much like a poodle coat) & a wavy coat of very soft feel to it. Both are very distint by 4wks & it has been about 3 generations since any real surprices turned up. I can not garrentee them to be allergy free as no breed is as it is not just all about the hair but skin dander & slober as well. I can also predict size now as well, most are between toy & mini but with thicker boneset, I do get a real shorty from time to time but thats the Shih Tzu bllod being so domanite. But it toke like 5 generations till a was happy to say I had a type as much as I wanted because I still like some individualism too.
    I did not know if the coats would work at first & they didn't at different stages along the way but the last 3 geneartions have been very reliable on coat & type.
    But they are just mutts at the end of the day & I have no dreams of making them a breed or even promoting my cross just to keep producing a litter here & there for those that are now so devoted to my mutts & for myself.

    Hi Crazydog

    Not sure why the link wouldn't work for you, it works when I click on it.

    Maybe try this...
    cut and paste the following into the address field...

    www.dogslife.com.au

    then click on articles - on the left
    then click on "breeding"
    and it's the last one in the list.

    I'm not sure I understand why you breed at all. I can see you're not adding to the pound puppies. Why can't you get the kind of dog you want from the pound? I see plenty of maltese and shih tzu types in there. Puppies even. I see you've gotten a reliable kind of puppy from your breeding program - what do you do with the puppies?

    I will try link again thanks.
    Yes there are heaps of crosses in pounds but mine are not a simple cross anymore.
    Like I've said I breed mainly for my own family(I am 1 of 5 & thats the norm in our family)& a few select friends. My sister has taken 2 trough to therepy dogs as has a friend ours with 1 of mine. I breed for me really & you have to remember a ave size litter is only 3 pups so really not many dogs over all at all. But we are aiming for diabetic alert dogs now my sister has had such a good result & I have 1 ready to start testing.

    This was not making sence to me so checked out PAWS for Diabetics.
    So I don't understand why you have to breed x's as diabetic alert dogs . Seems any small breed has the potential?

    Yep they do( many dogs have the ability) & that was not my origanal plan more just family pets but we found they did well at this & having a high % of childhood type diabeties in my close & extended family we are taking advantage of it. My sisiter & son are also chronic ashmatics so coat type was very important but as I have explained before I felt the pure poodles where a little too much when your sick alot & wanted a sturdier boned & framed type of small dog also & of most importance was a natural tendancy to want to be around kids of all ages & a very forgiving type of temperment. It was also important that the dogs matured to a small but useable size & be of an athletic enough build to jump up onto beds etc without wearing out joints etc.
    I am not breeding or promoting them as diabetic dogs in anyway but thats 1 thing a couple of my dogs are now doing within my family & also with 1 close family friend. I am not sure what is hard to understand & I did serch for what we wanted. I even tried 3 different breeds out at different times that went on to be desexed & live with my nan & another 2 stayed & I only recently lost the last 1 Tilly who lived to be nearly 20yrs old.
