    You have got to be kidding me... they imported a Saluki to breed doodles?
    They must be making an absolute mint off those puppies to warrant doing that.

    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

    I think this designer breed thing has near run its race here in Oz, if what I expect to come in when new laws are announced in QLD later this year, does come in, any person who breeds so much as one bitch unless it is a working dog, will need to have a breeders number to legally sell the pups.

    This will then make the breeder responsible to Fair Trading for pups they sell, no matter if ANKC or Floppy Doodles, now, if they have done no testing, Fair Trading may well hold them responsible for pups sold which later prove to have genetic (or other) faults, this type of thing will stop a lot of BYB, so there will not be so many oodles about, let alone pure breeds.

    That's if the governments that bring in these laws bother enforcing them. There are still plenty of people advertising "pitbulls for sale" in states were pitbull breeding and selling is illegal. Our government / council doesn't even enforce or check if dogs are registered unless the ranger is having a bad day. And then he will pick on one dog.

    Well if it could be done that would be good. Make people really think long and hard about the responsibilities and consequences of breeding.

    Yeah I guess the enforcement could be a problem unless people with defective dogs start to take action against the breeder and it is taken seriously.

    That's exactly right. I called the council about my parents being bybs and having too many dogs/unregistered dogs and they did nothing about it from what I could tell. The only thing I can see it doing is force bybs/puppy farmers to send their dogs interstate and/or advertise online rather than in the paper if the paper won't let them advertise without a number.

    Sounds good in theory but will it work in practice, well I do hope so but I wouldn't count on it.

    That chi is cute! And that salukidoodle crap? Ugh, I wish I hadn't seen that. It's obvious that these people are terrible breeders, why buy from them? Even though the pups were cuties, but then again, what puppy isn't?
