Does anyone know of a reputable breeder in the Washington/Oregon area who breeds Bichon Friese/Poodle mixes?? We are looking for a Bich-Poo puppy.

There is no such thing as a reputable breeder who breeds cross bred mutts. Your options are a puppy mill, or one of the smaller size puppy mills called "backyard breeder"

You might as well go down to the dog pound and save a mutt there instead of paying big money for a dog that is just a mutt.

"Poo" breeders do not have access to any quality breeding stock because the reputable breeders do everything in their power to keep dogs out of their hands. The parent dogs might not even be purebreds. Just hairy little mutts bred together to make some money, and call the puppies anything you want to call them.

I could not agree more. These so-called "designer breeds" began as poorly-conformed and poorly-bred dogs from specific breeds that couldn't make it as ideal representations of those breeds. So, the owners decided to cross-breed them and market a "designer breed" to the unknowing public, and somehow it caught on.

These breeds are not recognized by the AKC or any other reputable breed organization, and do nothing to help the thousands of shelter animals get homes.

If you are looking for an actual, AKC recognized pure-bred dog, then that's fine. But if not, please consider adopting a shelter animal instead of contributing to these mutt breeders who only help worsen the pet overpopulation problem.
