    OMG! trouble is people who breed their dogs casually are not stupid when they put a poo or doodle on the end of a breed as it tends to make then more marketable to the casual pet buyer.

    I hope I never hear of a Cattlepoo

    Each time we get a new member here with a 'doodle' or 'poo' or 'alier' we have the same old arguments about breeding... I wonder if this article should be 'stickied'? I, personally, don't have an issue with responsible breeders- pure or cross- but it does seem to me that a large amount of breeding is done for all the wrong reasons.

    When I bought Flirtt, the FIRST thing people said to me was 'oh, you're going to breed', and my response of 'no, they're both desexed' always brought surprise. Just because I have two purebred dogs does not automatically mean I am going to improve the Dobe gene pool by creating Villain and Flirtt babies!!! Surely this logic applies to everyone, whether they have pure or cross?? I mean, don't we have to ask ourselves what our reasons are for breeding first, before we go ahead and bring more puppies (or kittens or any animal) into the world?

    Makes me wonder how long before we get Doberpoos, Doberdoodles and Doberliers....
    Interesting articles and links.....And like V&F" Dobes, the newfie world also has colours that are not allowed because they have health problems associated with them.
    And I have the same, I owned three pure dogs, one male two females and all i got is when are you going to breed? Can I have a puppy when you breed?
    I would make the Breeder from hell LOL......No one would be good enough to have my puppies. So it is easier at present not to breed. Though my Breeder and Mentor is trying to change my mind and has offered me one of her beautiful boys, since Tobias had passed.....Time is not right at present, still too painful

    I hate to admit it but there are some ruddy funny mixed breed names. My favourite is a Havanese X Poodle... have a guess at what their designer name is.

    My favourite book about dog breeding is this one:
    It's old but IMO still one of the best.

    Not too funny, there is a "breeder" in the US breeding "Salukidoodles".

    You guessed it, saluki / poodles. Apparently this breeder couldn't purchase a saluki to create these puppies within the US as the breed community found out what was planned. No worries, they just imported one from Qatar.

    Woeful. XanaDude Female & Pups

    They breed a whole range of Doodles, and talk about "Doodledom"???? Cripes. Check out their site - it has paypal buttons for ordering puppies! And the "Guardian Home" deal where they retain breeding rights to pups?! I don't know whether to laugh or cry...

    I thought that article was very interesting.

    I didnt find it to be especially "anti" cross breeding but more explaining how to create a new breed rather than just crossing one generation and calling it a breed - if that makes sense.

    Speaking of creating new breeds, I am always curious as to why someone hasnt attemted to create a mini labrador. Labradors being one of (if not the) most popular breeds on hte planet and small dogs eing so popular, I always though a lab that was half or even a third the size would be quite popular. Tiny but looking like a lab and with that temperament.

    Not that I think anyone should create it necessarily but I am surprised someone hasnt tried lOL
