I always cringe whenever a Poodle wins Best in Show at one of the big dog shows. The publicity increases demand and a few months later the number of Poodles in rescue and in shelters spikes when the new puppies don't work out.

Amen on the Pittie/Boxer, that's what my girl Diamond is!
My new girl is named Diamond! Lamont's Black Diamond, to be exact. Purebred black German Shepherd that was antisocial to the home pack and we got her, papers and all. She needed a one-dog family.

Dont forget the Bullhound. A guy I know was over shooting a TV Series here in NM (I am a Film Liaison) and he was telling me of Staffordshire Bull Terrier crossed with a Greyhound which was fairly popular there :S Not a great fan of Hymutts myself. Did see a Labradoodle in person and it was almost like a miniature Irish Wolfhound.

Labradoodles (Labrador and poodles) all act very bland. There is not much personality there, they just really...act like nothing, seem to have hip problems also.

Too bad you've never met my Doodle.He is an AWESOME dog,only 5 months old and is already proving to be above-average in intelligence! He is definitely a one-person dog,sticks right by my side. He is also great w/ my 3 kids,knows several tricks,is sweet,loving,very playful and well behaved. All I have to do if he starts acting up is to say his name in a stern tone,& he quits whatever he is doing and runs to my side . My husband only has to say "Go to Mama" and he'll go right to me! He wasn't purposely bred,like most Labradoodles,so his parents weren't overly-inbred spolied,witless show dogs like most.
I cannot STAND the stupid fad of charging hundreds of dollars for mutts.

I paid $24 for Doodle.

I honestly think that no matter what people buy or where they buy it or how they buy it..there will always be someone to criticize. If i buy a purebreed..someone will be upset I didn't rescue one from the shelter..if I get a cross..someone will complain I didn't buy a purebreed and so on and so on. So I have found you can't please everyone and it's best to do as you feel is best for you and your family. I also think it's rude to say Labradoodles are ugly when someone just posted a pic of theirs..

LOL well I'm not surprised,as some of the people on CD are not the kindest,brightest people out there.
I could care less if someone calls my wonderful pup "ugly", as I get the pleasure of his company every day & knowing that he is likely smarter than some posters here.
