Tonysayssss, her response to you was exactly the same response as she sent to someone on my Yahoo email group who emailed her. Must be her stock answer.

I just think this is horrible. Poor dogs, and poor people who spend all their money on these pups. The one is being sold for a reduced price because it's color wasn't right. For a mixed breed???

People rarely if ever necrospsy mutts who have died, nor do the do any health clearances. How on earth can they say with any accuracy that their dogs did not have HD/ED, SAS, eye problems, etc etc etc?

Further, the crossing of two breeds that are known to have health issues does NOT negate those health issues from occuring.

And, a "hybrid" is the result of a cross between 2 SPECIES, not 2 breeds.

Hahaha

I'm so sorry I clicked on that link. Now I sit here and I am disgusted at their website. It truly looks like the lines of a puppy mill. They breed for profit only. So sad.

Sorry that I got everyone fired up about this but I had to share, just because I am fired up about it.

Shame on her for making a profit from unknowing people.

oh. I never knew that before. So it really is just a mix. I think it depends on the mix you choose. One of my dogs is a Yorkie Poodle cross and he was only $450 as opposed to the $1200 - $2500 breeders want for a AKC Yorkie. Some purebred dogs are much more expensive. I'm sure that's why adoption is a route for people but sometimes, those people aren't prepared for a dog that could have emotional problems or a hard time adjusting from kennel life.

Have seen an advert today for a Golden crossed with a Cocker Spaniel advertised as a "Rare Find".

Whilst the public continue to buy these so called designer breeds or whatever other label you want to give them then the dogs will continue to be expoited, and the so called breeders will continue to rub their hands with glee as the money is handed over.

Not any more...now that cutsie names are the big thing, you have a YorkiePoo and some "breeders" are selling them for a couple of grand. Usually, people are paying much MORE for one of these "designer" mutts than they would pay for a purebred.

Hahaha

I'm not sure I understand you. Do you think that dogs in rescue come from kennels? I think the majority of them come from shelters or are owner surrendered (though small breed, highly desirable dogs may come from different backgrounds than the dogs I deal with), though there are a few that are strays. I will say from experience that the majority of them do NOT have emotional problems, nor are they coming into rescue from kennels. I think I might have misunderstood what you are saying.
