I'm sure the OP figured it all out by now since thread was started in 08.

But we can't say it enough- these mixed breeds are just as much mutts as the dogs at the shelter. That anyone would pay to any "breeder" of these rip offs is a joke. As Barnum said "There's a sucker born every minute".

As much as I am against breeding mutts, at least the buyer would know the mix that went into the mutt, unlike the guesswork involved in adoption. But I do agree that, if one needs certain specific characteristics because of allergies, it would be best to buy from a good breeder so you know you're getting the characteristics you need.
There is also the possibility of adopting a purebred from a breed rescuer, that way everyone is a winner!

Please don't get a designer dog mutt mix. You are contributing to the pet overpopulation problem by rewarding breeders financially for purposely crossbreeding dogs.

Not necessarily. People who are breeding for money reasons only really don't care if their dog is pure bred, as long as they can show papers that it is. Someone I once worked with bought a Pomeranian puppy complete with AKC papers. The "breeder" also had Schipperkes. This pup came with full papers but once she was full grown, it was obvious that her daddy was a Schipp. This "breeder" didn't care what she was selling you. It's a cute puppy with papers so who cares?
