    I with beloz...

    I really dont see why people shouldnt be able to breed or own their own cute cross bred mutt, if that is what they want to own.

    And it is quite possible to be ignorant even with all this technology. Not everyne sits on the internet googling stuff, and even then sometimes people dont know what to look for. To assume everyone should be educated because we have "google" is extremely ignorant.

    Yes, I agree we live in a throwaway society and that needs to change, but I dont think people shoudl stop buying the dog they want because of it.

    In regards to the leopard skin...my OH would love one. Not something I am into but if he could get one he would.

    As I mentioned somewhere else, I also don't get why people choose one breed over another when we talk purebreds. There are some varieties of purebreeds that are very similar to others (how many different Spaniels are there?). Yet I don't see anyone question why they exist or lecture the people who want one.

    huh? there are different types of spaniels etc, but that doesn't mean they are crosses, they are established registered breeds.
    You're not making much sense to be Beloz.

    Beloz is addressing the argument that people often pose regarding cross breeds "why choose a cross when u can get the same characteristics in a purebreed" ie some people want a fluffy cavoodle (me). It is the same as someone picking one type of spaniel over another kind of spaniel, people want what they want.

    But does the means justify the end? It is irresponsible to breed crossbred dogs intentionally, period. Everything else be damned, at the end of the day it is adding to the already huge problem we have of unwanted animals in this country and personally, it makes me sick. I worked at a dog rescue for 4 years and the amount of oodles that came through was crazy, given how 'popular' they are. But people aren't prepared for the coat care that a poodle mix needs (especially when bred with a Cavalier or similar breed that MOULTS REGULARLY).

    Purebreds are purebred for a reason. Not every registered breeder is ethical, true, but putting one breed over another for the sake of 'seeing' what comes out the other side is idiotic and it's creating problems. You cannot predict what the outcome of a crossbreed mating will be, end of.


    like a rolling thunder chasing the wind...

    And that sums it up. People want what they want, and to turn a blind eye to serious animal welfare issues. A round of applause for selfish folk.

    Clap... clap...

    And as for someone, in this day and age, wanting a real leopard skin... I have few words. People out there, REAL people, work every day fighting against the international wildlife trade, people give their lives, livelihoods and those of their families working as wildlife rangers trying to protect our worlds' wildlife...

    Rarely, oh so rarely do I read something so godamned ignorant and disgusting on a forum and get genuinely upset by it.

    "But I want one..." Humanities' excuse for committing so very many atrocities against animals for such a long time. Bravo.

    People make me sick.

    The thing is with crosses, you can't guarantee you are going to get what you want because the breeds aren't consistent.
    If you "want" a cavalier for what ever reason, and you go to a reputable breeder, you know without a doubt you are going to get what you want in looks and temperament.
    If you go to a cavoodle breeder, you are lucky to get a dog the size you want, the coat you imagined, the temperament like the guys cavadoodle up the road etc etc

    Puppy coat can be worlds apart from adult coat as well... Look at breeds like the Great Dane for example, lovely sily soft puppy coat... harsher adult coat. Or the Shih Tzu, cute little fluffy puppies, but have a big coat change when they reach maturity.
    With a purebred you know this... with a cross you have no idea what the coat is going to do.

    Forget it Puggers and Crested. You can present all the rational arguments in the world - they've all been presented, heard and ignored.

    "If I want the cute fluffy... I want it. OK??"

    No amount of rationality will amount to anything.

    That about sums it up.

    As to leopards, I grew up in central Africa and to see the shy and beautiful leopard was rare and extraordinary.

    Yes rangers give their lives in the fight against poachers. A guy I worked with used to be a ranger and he had half his face blown off in a gunfight with poachers. Poachers would lay waste to everything if they could and it is rarely the foot soldier that benefits much, rather the head honchos.
