    I think we may miss her reasons for making such a big deal out of the denuding of show dogs because we are not familiar with their Kennel Club rules, I doubt it is acceptable to change a dog in this manner to make it come up to standard, and that is her point ?.

    I know over here dogs which have had cosmetic surgery to improve looks may not be shown according to ANKC rules , although some are shown.

    Remember she is not talking about somebody's pet here but show dogs.

    I'm a bit surprised that you would think it funny to do something to a dog that causes it distress? some of those dogs definitely have rashes that look quite irritating.

    Crested Love herself has a show Crested... so she's familiar with the rules, am I right?

    The blog is about English dogs Boxerini, not our ,although what happens over there often does go on here too, I am not familiar with Englands rules as against our own.

    Whatever the rules are I don't hold with hurting dogs, be you a puppy mill or a show breeder, I just don't see it as funny.

    Talk about hit and run from the OP. Where did that desperate seeking spoodle go?

    Obviously not desperate enough to discuss it with us.

    So theoretically - it is possible that there could be a responsible breeder (as described by the RSPCA), that breeds with pure breds or bitsas. It's just not very likely. Genetic health tests are expensive and how the puppies might turn out is unknown.

    But something called "out crossing" to improve lines used to be quite common and was probably a good thing - though when it was common, it was also common to drown any puppies that were not quite right.

    Progress is not always a good thing.

    OP seems to have ducked off, but small wonder, we got of topic a bit, but as to the above comment of yours, does it happen any less now? just thinking of another thread about putting down pups of a wrong colour.

    And just because I might play Devils advocate at times don't think I am against pure breeds,I am most certainly not. we need them and we need registires too.

    We also need credability with the public if we want to convince them to buy from registered breeders, and like it or not we do need their backing, so I do think we need to be a bit careful of what claims we might make, an opinion is one thing but to make outright claims with no idea of the other side of a story is another thing, and the public are no longer so ignorant, the net is a two edged sword.

    Default spoodle it is

    i have recentley lost a poodle cross cocker, to old age she was 17. I found that she really suited my lifestyle and was a fabulous companion. i realise that another spoodle will not be the same as the one i previously had but however there are certain things within both breeds that made up her personality and her suitability to my life. this is not something i have not thought about. I would certainly not choose colour over health and my post has nothing in it that suggests that i would. Simply all i was wanting from this post was to locate a spoodle puppy in qld, give it a great lifelong loving responsible home and thats about it. I am not wanting a debate, just a spoodle puppy.
    I am not a novice dog owner and also not stupid!

    Hey Spoodle
    I went to Trading Post - Online and Mobile Classifieds and put in QLD and spoodle and there were 3 ads for spoodles. The first was a couple of spoodles aged 4 needing a new forever home (free of charge) as their owner had divorced...so its not just puppies for sale in there.

    I understand how you feel about wanting another dog of the same mix, but having read this forum for a few weeks you begin to realise how awful the mixed poodle 'breeds' have resulted in terrible breeding practices by these puppy farms

    I recently lost my Toodle...he was a min poodle x aust terrier. I loved him dearly but he was very sickly from early on...having epilepsy etc. He died in my arms at aged 5 yrs only a week before Christmas I got him from a pet shop

    However, my new baby girl is a pure bred toy poodle and she is so gorgeous. I still grieve for Teddy and Lucy is not a replacement for him - she is another furbaby for me to love

    I wish you well in your search for the mix of dog you feel most comfortable with.

    Anyone who deliberately breeds a "spoodle" will likely lie to you and tell you that any dog they have is a "spoodle" whether it really is or not. So you're not guaranteed to get what you want looking for a "spoodle".

    It does seem that you do want to support the puppy mill industry that churns out the "oodles".

    Your first post doesn't mention anything about healthy puppy and does mention a colour so pardon me for thinking colour was a priority for you.
    Does anyone know of available spoodle puppies in QLD. I live in Rockhampton and cannot find a spoodle locally yet, and an not sure if there are any breaders at all locally. I am willing to travel to find my spoodle, but needs to be in QLD preferrably north of Brisbane.

    I am looking for a female puppy and would love black and white colourings but would be fine with any colour really.

    I would appreciate any help you could give me

    Sorry I'm debating with you, but I hate puppy mills, and I would discourage back yard breeders or people who would buy from them because most of their dogs end up in rescue / shelters / PTS.

    http://www.petrescue.com.au/search/?...l=qld&i=0&pg=1

    from their website:
    Why don't you have the facility to search for specific breeds of dogs?
    PetRescue believes that nearly all rescue animals can be excellent companions and family members when appropriately matched to their new home. In this respect (often inaccurate) breed generalisations do little to serve individual animals and many lesser known breeds would actually be disadvantaged if we brought in the ability to search in this way.

    When searching for your new pet try to look past the way the animal looks, the way that some breeds are portrayed in movies, even look past animals of a certain breed you've known in the past.

    Every rescue pet is a unique individual, just as you are. The best match is one tailored to you by a knowledgeable rescue worker who knows that animals personality and is concerned for its wellbeing. The rescuer you deal with should be dedicated to never seeing that dog or cat end up in rescue ever again.

    Find a rescue group you trust and can build a rapport with and you're on the way to finding your perfect furry friend!

    Oh, Hyac, ROFL til my stomach hurts... !!

    Back on topic: Agree, and thanks for the informative links.

    Sorry for that diversion in an otherwise serious discussion.

    Yes, sorry Boxerini, but that whole article was just over the top ridiculous.

    Minibulls-mum is WAY off the mark when she says I find it funny to do something that causes my dog discomfort/distress...

    Yes, Cresteds get shaved for shows but nothing like what the article portrayed.
    There is a girl being shown down here in Tassie who has maybe 5-10 hairs over her entire body. Those 5 hairs get shaved off but that's it.

    My boy does have a fairly thick stripe of hair down the center of his back but still nothing like she is making it out to be. And I do not rash him when I shave him, I use a mens electric razor and it takes me just a few minutes to get the hairs off... Cyrus actually goes to sleep while I'm doing it, it's a battle to get him to stand up.

    Show breeders do try to breed nice thick crests and thick hair on the feet and tail which means there may be some excess body hair as compared to pets but it in no way, whatsoever affects the dogs health.

    So unless you have OWNED and SHOWN a Chinese Crested, I don't think you can form a fair opinion.

    And yes, shaving them is permitted by Kennel Club rules, same as shaving a Poodle is permitted.
    It is foreign substances that are not allowed such as hairspray or chalk, yet they are used anyway.

    Sorry for going back off topic, just felt the need to defend myself and my show practices with my dog.


    What thread is this? Right.... Spoodles...

    I am sure they are fantastic little dogs, but the thing with mixed breeds is, if you have owned a Spoodle before chances are when you buy another one it will be NOTHING like the one you had previously.

    I had a purebred Shih Tzu years ago, lovely little dog, so calm and loving with a quirky nature.
    He passed away at 10 years of age.

    Well, I thought because of how Elliott was, calm and loving, they all must be like that right? WRONG! We got another Shih Tzu, she was even related our little Elliott (his great grandaughter) she was the polar opposite of him.
    She was dirty in the house, loud, hyperactive.

    They were raised the exact same way, but were completely different.
    And that was with a purebred dog who was related to the other! Imagine how different a mixed breed non-related dog can be!

    I say to anyone wanting a Spoodle to buy a purebred Miniature Poodle from a reputable breeder.

    Poodles (and therefor 'Spoodles") are prone to a genetic disease called Progressive Retinal Atrophy.
    This disease makes the dogs go completely blind by around age 5-6.

    Seeing as how the average dog is mated at around 2 years old there is no way to know if the dog has the disease or not without special testing.

    Reputable breeders do this genetic testing before they breed. Backyard breeders and puppy mills do not.

    I don't know about you but I would rather go for the purebred Poodle from the reputable breeder and KNOW it will not go blind, than risk getting a Spoodle from a backyard breeder and having to manage with a blind dog after it turns 5... remembering that some people here have said their dogs lived for 17 years.... so that makes what? 12 years living and coping with a blind dog. Not fair on you or the dog.

    If anyone wants information on Miniature Poodles I would be happy to help, I have 2 of them and my mum currently has 4 (she used to be a registered breeder).
