If you own a puggle, bugg, cockapoo, pug russell Laberdoodel, etc. and just want to brag about your baby I am intrested in hearing about them. I am sure the rude remarks will come up about how dum we are for enjoying these breeds since they are outcasts. But lets give it a try maybe we will learn about some new cute breed that we haven't even heard of yet
I just read the rules and it states no breeder/ Breeding Bashing well why do almost all the crossbreed topic have nothhing but bashing people that own or breed crossbreeds. I don't belive a dog will love its family anymore if it is purebred. I love puggles and chi/beagle crosses. I own 4 purebreed beagles and love anything that is crossed with a beagle because they are very smart loving dogs.
I have 2 Beagle mixes and love them like crazy. But I think you're mistaken - people on this site don't have a problem with mixes, they don't have a problem with mutts - they love all dogs. They have a problem with the breeders who are purposely breeding mixed breed dogs and giving them cute names so that they can make money. While I love my mutts - I got them at shelters and rescues - I didn't pay a breeder hundreds of dollars for a "specially made mutt". The people on here are frustrated because the shelters and rescues are so full and soooo many dogs are being put to sleep every day because of irresponsible breeders and owners.
You have mixes... that's great - no one will have a problem with it as long as you don't call them a puggle or a buggle or a shuggle.
With out the rude remarks -------------------------------- I'm confused...you stated this in your topic. No one has posted anything so far in your thread that was anti-mix, anti-mix owner, bashing etc. Yet you get the finger pointing started on your own.
i have a chowchow/keeshond mix. i don;t think he is a designer mutt but i love him as much as if he were one.
his name is thunder, he is going to be 9 years old next month. from what i have read about both breeds, it seems he is an equal mix between the two temperament wise, though i wish he were a little less chow like in some regards. but his clownish keeshond side makes him worth it =)
I do belive that the dogs were bashed. Are you telling me that if a group of dogs. 4 or 5 of 3 or 4 different breeds living with out human involement(sp)would only breed with there own breed. Because I would bet money on it that they would crossbreed and not just breed with there own breed in the group. Dogs are not judgemental.
My own girl was gotten from a man who was trying to sell her and her brothers as purebred dachshunds. When I saw her and where she lived I told him she wasn't pure, but that I would take her free, because I wanted to get her out of that situation. She didn't even have a doghouse. She was born july 12 and she is nervous and shy around all people.
My point being...you claim to have started this thread to happily talk about our mixed breeds without any rudeness. Yet you were the first to bring up another thread and how rude and bashing they were there. No one was being rude in this thread...isnt that what you wanted? Why would you get it going on your own?
I have 2 mixed breeds of my own (well 3...one was said to be a pure lab, but I think it is mixed) the other 2 are black lab/springer mix, and a german shepherd/golden retriever mix.
Paying for a Mutt is only the business of the buyer. I think Puggles are very cute they have the exact look of a mastiff and only a 1/4 the size so only 1/4 the feed bill so paying a high price could save money in the long run if you do the research to find the right breeder.
you think puggles look like little mastiffs ? i am seeing tons of them at work, and i dont see a resemblance to a mastiff at all. matter of fact, the puggle we neutered today, just looked like an oversized pug, and had a very timid temperament.
