    Such two very contrasting posts, these last two. Refreshing open-mindedness from newfsie (and well argumented as always).

    And Pugger's... Let me just say that I know people who will not even consider a purebred dog because of the kind of attitude that you have expressed in this thread. Though just like me, these people do not have anything against purebred dogs at all.

    Beloz. if you had spent generations of time and money and effort to pump out champions, you would totally understand how unbelievably ridiculous and insulting it is that people claim their dogs are champions and then put them with another breed. It makes no sense and if this poodle is female it can no longer even breed poodles.
    I am not doubting these crosses are beautifully natured and that hugo has a gorgeous dog, but a groodle is not a breed and the breeder is a back yarder.

    So they go and deliberately get designer breeds from puppy mills instead because pet shop owners and mill breeders are so much nicer?

    I will not EVER defend cross breeding. Accidental matings I can cope with, even though it's negligent to allow it to happen. The dogs themselves I have nothing against, what I am against is the immoral money hungry people who pump out breeds that are high on the market, without any testing, and without knowledge of heritage. I say it how it is, if you don't like that, it's not my problem.

    I also don't appreciate people who claim their dogs are champions and then put them with another breed. It's not only bullcrap, but if it were true, imagine how the original breeders of that line would feel knowing all of that intense hard work and money just went down the drain?

    Is that because the ANKC won't allow it?

    Yes and because it can get throw back from other matings. It's future puppies would never be pedigree again.

    Häh? I don't think I understand this. If a pedigree dog and another pedigree dog have puppies. These puppies can't get 'pedigree status' if the bitch had previously another litter with the neighbours mutt?


    *sorry for edit - am completely confused*

    No they can't..well they could lie I suppose, but most breeders are very careful to not allow accidental matings or deliberate matings with another breed, so it's a very rare occurrence.

    I feel like shouting now: these people did NOT buy their puppies from a puppy mill or pet store!!! Stop mixing up these two completely separate issues, please.

    Why does it bother you so much if someone else uses a "champion" dog for breeding something else but champions? So what if it means a breeding line is lost? It's not as if poodles are a rare breed and there is a lack of good breeding lines, I would have thought. So why take it as a personal insult to purebred breeders?
