    No, farm dogs seem exempt from the purpose bred cross disdain.

    As do I.

    I have no problem with breeders so long as they are registered and ethical (breeding for the right reasons, health testing etc etc).

    Anything outside of that cross or pure I have disdain for.

    She has mentioned that both parents are great workers and all the potential puppies already have homes in working environments.

    In my opinion I put dogs bred for work in a different category then dogs bred for looks.
    I dont care why the dog has been bred. I dont have a problem....

    But lets use oodles for an example...they have a purpose. They are bred as companions.

    Sure they arent working dogs but there is still a purpose there so whats the difference?

    Dont be mistaken...I dont like puppy mills as much as the next person. I also dont like people who bang litter after litter out of thei rbitches just for the money.

    I just find it odd how we dont as a group question the purebred breeders like we do the cross breeders.


    I am also home from work today so likely to be annoying all day LOL - cept when I go to my docs appointment in about an hour lol

    As far as I can see the OP has not stated reason for wanting to breed their poodle so could be anything including she is "cute" and think she would make pretty puppies for all I know.

    Actually people who come looking at Xbreeding get asked a lot of questions and given a lot of advice re: health testing, costs involved in breeding and homing pups, etc etc.

    Actually there is a thread going at the moment about a pregnant Bull Arab X bitch who is a farm dog and on her 3rd litter, it is a whelping thread and no one has slammed her (from what I saw of the thread anyways).
    I choose to differ. There are lots of posts on this forum stating there are NO responsible xbreed breeders. So even if they have all the health tests done, they are still regarded as irresponsible.

    And yes, farm dogs seem to be an exception to the rule.

    OK yea, I generally agree then.

    If its done properly with health testing, I couldnt care who breeds.

    I wasn't commenting on it and I won't comment on the thread.
    I was just using it as an example for Lala who said we slam all xbreeders.

    They do get some advice, I can happily concede that. But they are usually slammed along with the advice.

    This just doesnt happen to people who want to breed their purebreds.

    Thats the problem I have with it.

    If I came in and started postign that I wanted a bitch for Barney (he is entire, its possible), I would get no end of shit because he is a mutt of unknown breeding. It wouldnt matter if I had him health checked and the bitch health checked and had homes lined up. And it wouldnt matter if I had a purpose. I would get a$$holes for it.

    Disclaimer: I have NO intention of doing that LOL

    I think my approach to it is different as my expartner lived on a farm in Minengew (North-East WA) which was wheat and sheep. They and generally most farmers in the area had crossbreed working dogs. Somewhat of a kelpie/border collie mix.

    Those dogs that werent bred were sterilized and from what I know of most dogs are health checked. Basically because sheep are these guys lives theyre not going to endanger their welfare by having unhealthy dogs - whether purebred or not.

    Perhaps not all.....but most get some sort of bollocking. And the proportion of bollocking purebred breeders is far far lower.

    Whats wrong with going slightly off topic anyway??? Isnt that the beauty of forums....that you have conversations that sometimes go off on a tangent, then come back to the topic, then go off on another tangent?

    No one is arguing or being bitchy...
