A neighbor of mine came over today and saw my puppies. I told her what happened with Sydney and she started going off on how much money I could get for the puppies and how I should start breeding them. I told her I'm sticking with purebreds and not going to intentionally breed mixes. Then she started going off on how individual they would be. She said someone is breeding pomeranian chi crosses just because she accidentally had a litter and she loved the look of her pups so much she decided to breed. Now she sells them for thousands of dollars and my neighbor I don't think understands that not all will be so cute!
see my thread about my doxie, Sydney. She is I think pregnant and was when she was given to me. She may have been bred by a toy poodle.
I told my neighbor how irresponsible I thought it was to purposely mix breed dogs. Her response was : But these chi-pom puppies were SO adorable!!! I said ALL puppies are adorable! Doesn't mean you should purposely mix dogs just 'cause you get cute puppies. :(
My puppies aren't born yet(I think I'm going to take her to the vet for an ultrasound and pray she's not pregnant! ) If she is I will post pics on dogster.
I hope for everyone sake and the poor little dog she is not pregnant. What a shame. I have never seen so many ignorant people in my life. I think everyone has lost their minds. They just flat don't care about nothing but the almighty dollar.
I have even had people see my male piebald mini doxie, and one of my girls and they ask if I would be willing to breed their "yorkie, chihuahua, poodle, pug or whatever small breed they have to them and get some "Cool New Breed" The BEST/dumbest one was the guy who wanted to breed his italian greyhound to one of my boys! My answer is always NO WAY! My aunt wanted to breed her male yorkie to my female doxie that had pups in feb. Thank god he was neutered yesterday! Her only reason she would have not neutered him would be if she thought I would want to breed him. So he's neutered, thank god!
Here's a link to some "new designer breeds" blegh some are really ugly! I would never mix two healty purebred dogs together if they were of seperate breeds intentionally, when people do this they are trying to get a fast buck, and pay for a new plasma tv. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING !!! http://dogbreedinfocenter.com/hybriddogs.htm
