    So you agree with that statement.
    Well I WAS a DIEHARD purebred breeder & did some showing & I now breed more based on health & usefulness than a piece of paper. I am NOT a big breeder & breed for myself family & friends mainly when needed. I am not ajainst purbreeds & even breed 2 such litters over the last 3 yrs but I will also cross breed when I feel it's for the right reasons. As long as no one is trying to say a x is a pure & do the approtae health screening before breeding & are willing to take resondsability for what thney breed I see no harm.
    There are as many bad pure breeders as x breeders.

    No, I do not neccessarily agree with it, but I find no problem with allowing others to believe what they believe about BYB's.

This is absolutely wrong, true far too many breeders do not know what they are doing and others do not care, but you simply cannot make blanket statements like that an remain credible, there are many reasons for cross breeding by breeders who both care for their dogs and know what they are doing.
    Regarding this, my logic is that most respectable breeders care about their lines and in the pure bred world, cross breeds "ruin" these lines. Sure you have the guy who first bred the labrador x poodle and I recognise that he had the best intentions. He made sure they were health tested and then tested the puppies coats to find a dog that would be a suitable service dog for someone allergic to dogs. But this is not how people breed these dogs today. Also why would a breeder who has done all the right things and spent money on health testing, registered as a breeder with the kennel club (i forget the abbreviation), etc breed a dog which can't be registered with the kennel club?

    People love buying these dogs from pet shops, they fall in love with their cuteness and don't bother with desexing, then they think "aww he/she is so cute, imagine i'd they have puppies". Then they either buy another of the other gender or they have a friend who had one. Then there are the puppy farms...

    You have to be careful when buying a purebred dog, but even more careful with a cross breed. A lot of "breeder" websites may say things like "born and raised on the farm, lots of room to run around" but if they don't let you visit the property, it's probably just a front for a puppy farm.

    I could say so many other things but I could talk all day as I am strongly against puppy farms and I've seen first hand what the world of breeding "designer" dogs is like.

    A good deal of what you say is quite right, and well said too MTA ,but you do not seem to realise that the kennel club is not the be all and end all of anything let alone breeding healthy functioning dogs, this is terrible but true like it or not, we need to get our act very much more together than it is right now follow this blog if you doubt me the latest posts are about Cresteds and Pugs Pedigree Dogs Exposed - The Blog all well researched stuff showing just what is allowed to go on in the hallowed halls of the registered dog world.
    Working dog people do not bother much if at all with ANKC registered dogs, although many of those do breed pure breds and keep their lines true, others just as soon breed crosses for various reasons, not always to collar some fashion market.

    Yes, of course I intended this advice to also apply if the OP decides to go with a purebred puppy

    That blog is also very one sided.

    BAHAHAHAHHAHAHA oh that Crested section was good for a laugh.

    I didn't read the Pug one as I do not know the breed well but the Crested one... Is the woman who wrote that article for real

    Elaborate for the non-Crested people, perhaps?

    That blog brings up some interesting points that I agree with and others that I don't agree with so much. I can imagine that the writer would be mortified that I paint my dog's nails pink (even if it's with dog safe nail polish). :P

    To me, as long as a dog is happy, healthy and is well looked after (regular very visits, adequate grooming, proper diet, etc) then it doesn't matter if they aren't the "best representation of the breed", provided that they aren't bred.

    But back on topic, I don't like the OPs chances of getting a happy and healthy spoodle from a respectable breeder.
