    I gotta find the last post on the subject and cut and paste.

    Coopariow:
    "reputable cavashon puppy"

    No such thing, they're a puppy mill special.

    Hmm from the last person asking for the same thing. I wonder if there is a link?

    The problems with a cross breed with a fancy name are caused by
    ignorant customers who think they can pick and choose from a genetic pool. Are all your siblings and cousins identical with identical temperments? - I think while they may have similarities - there will be a lot of variety and some you wouldn't choose to live with.

    Same with cross breed dogs - you can't choose which characteristics you get.

    So the cross breeders who say you can are lying. What else are they lying about?
    Do you get to meet both puppy parents and find out what their temperments are like and hence the likely temperment of the puppies. Are the puppies even of the cross the breeder says? Could you tell a cavalier KCS x Bichon Frise from a poodle x maltese puppy?

    Most "designer dogs" come from puppy mills. Not all but most. How do you tell the difference and what's wrong with a puppy farm? Dogs in puppy farms are kept in very similar ways to battery hens ie small cages with wire floors, no opportunity to live a normal doggy life - resulting in unhealthy puppies with bad social skills ie they often attack other dogs for no reason making them not much fun to take for a walk. And they cost piles of money after you bring them home at the vet for things like bad teeth, bad spines, bad joints etc.

    But the cross breeder will say they're breeding healthier dogs. And when you ask them for help with your vet bills resulting from genetic problems - they won't talk to you let alone take the puppy back like a responsible breeder will.

    So a bunch of links to help you find a good breeder. Or if you really want cross breed vigour get a dog from a pound or rescue. As part of your research make sure you get some face to face recommendations from the dog breed clubs. Puppy mills and dodgy breeders can have beautiful websites with lots of happy testimonials that they wrote themselves. Ie those are sometimes complete works of fiction. Some of them will even take your money and deliver you nothing not even a sick puppy.

    There is heaps of relevant info on the RSPCA website - not just about pound puppies but any puppies.

    If a puppy is offered at less than 8 weeks old - run away, this is a sign of a dodgy breeder.

    And a registered breeder does not always mean good breeder. Some advertise they're registered but that means they have a licence from their local council, not that they're with the ANKC and would sell you a puppy eligible for ANKC events (pretty much anything doggy in Australia).

    Australian National Kennel Council
    Note an ANKC registered breeder should follow the ANKC code of ethics. And you should get a puppy with ANKC papers for no additional cost. Ie all puppies from ANKC registered parents must also be registered. They have two registers - Main - it's ok to breed from that dog, and limited - dog is for a pet only and should be desexed. In the bad old days, these puppies might have been PTS.

    Knew we could rely on you Hy.

    Maybe a sticky titled Hy's wonderful posts to those looking to breed, buy designer dogs etc can be done so we can all cut and paste it if needed, lol. Giving her due credit of course.

    The only trouble with the cut and paste is it ate all the links. A bit of PITA but I saved the text with the links before the system converted them...

    There are always these cross breeds looking for homes, in the pound and in rescue.
    Please remember to direct these people looking for these sorts of breeds, to listings at petrescue etc.
