Default Oh geeze - never should've looked at the Classifieds!

Good gravy - I'm flabbergasted at the dog breeds out there!!

Silver labs $1,000

Mi-Ki - Maltese/Papillon/Japanese Chin X

Pooki - mix of Papillon/Poodle/Mi-Ki - anywhere from $800-1,200 for a pet/male to $1,800 for a pet/female. Breeding stock with the breeding rights, however are more.

Mini AussieDoodles, guaranteed to be 6-12 lbs.

Shiffon - Shih Tzu/Brussels Griffon

Sorky - Silky/Yorkie

Teddy Bear - Bichon/Shih Tzu

ShihPoo - Shih Tzu/Poodle

Pomatese - Pomeranian/Maltese

Toy Lab - one breeder's website says that they are mixed breed small dogs resembling a lab!

German Shorthair Retriever - GSP/Lab X - I have one of these "designer dogs" I found in the local pound 6 years ago! I paid $50 - she was fully vetted! They're toted as a pointer & retriever - upland & water dog - scent hounds nose without the wandering!


OK - I'm done.....I'm just amazed at what they charge for those guys. We've had & will have at the shelter here 6-10 week old Shih Tzus, Cocker Spaniels, Cockapoos, Labradoodles, Jack Russels, Yorkies.....some of those are purebreds, some designer dogs, and then we've had hundreds of mixed breed puppies.

Time to rename your pups in the shelter...
You should try to post fancy name just to make people adopt them...

The only problem with using the fancy-smancy names is do we really want to support the designer dog fad?

It's amazing the names some people come up with for crossbreeds
In my local library there was a coffee table book with pictures and information of all the new designer crosses!!

I would so totally buy it... if i had the money...

People just wanting designer dogs to me is disgusting. People should just love dogs the way they are, and not try to get some fancy shmancy froo froo dog. No dog is perfect.

I have a book on designer crosses, only because I feel there becoming so popular that as a dog person that does abit of training and studys anything dog related, I felt it be a good one for my collection. It acherly very good exsplains at the beginning that these are cross breeds, and what it takes to make a real breed.

I view is the same it has always been. Breed a cross breed if you want, but never charge stupied prices for them, if you do breed health test, if they have good test scores then use them in there own breed, as they need the good test result more, and there are 1000's of crosses already in rescue.
