    Cant stand the cross bred "designer" mutts they are pumping out these days, why ruin a perfectly good breed by crossing it with another?
    I'd like to rephrase this sentence: I hate people who play with genetics for the sake of money and ruin dogs in geneal. With all good things that mutts might have bad things may come as well. Fine, create a new breed, but don't pump them and mix everything and anything just to make money. Yuk! Feel sorry for these pups really.

    What i wrote is what i will say thank you. I have nothing nice to say about people pumping out cross breds for the hell of it and if i want to say it bluntly then i will do so. I feel sorry for the pups but it is not the pups fault that they were born.

    I am a purist so i will call whatever dog that is mixed with another (like these cross breds) whatever i like. Would you prefer me to call them mongrols?

    There are plenty of snobby, I mean "purist" forums out there. Perhaps you'd like to ride your high horse over to one?

    Well I don't have to say anything nice about those people either. But still, I wouldn't call those dogs such names. It's not their fault that people have done that.
    And anyway, there are plenty of purebreed breeders who do that for the sake of money anyway. I see your point, but I don't agree with kinda offensive attitude.

    That's very funny, cause just about ALL pure breeds became pure by mixing one with another creating something new that's later been registered by FCI or ACA or whatever. First there was a mongrel, then we created purebreeds. So, you can't really be purist hehe. Call them whatever you want, but remember also they're somebody's pet too and we love them the way they are - mongrel, mutt, mix...

    I think some people should really ask themselves why they have a dog as a pet. Is it a status symbol, a show piece, or a loved family member?

    Thumbs up Favourite breed

    I have just registered and this thread caught my eye.I love most dogs but my favourite breed is the Boxer.Over the years I have had four, three females and a male.All have been lovely natured,loyal and full of energy. All have lived 12 years and two died of cancer. My vet tells me that 12 years is a good life span for this breed but each time I lost one I was heartbroken and vowed to get another breed with a longer life expectancy. However when it came to getting a new dog I couldn't go past this breed.

    I adore labs, but also have a very soft spot for blue heelers
