"In response to the above comment... I dont see why anyone would feel so strongly against such a crossbreed? both poodles and chinese cresteds are small dogs with similar natures. My family purchased a female chinese crested after falling in love with her and later on bought a male toy poodle... the two dogs ended up mating after getting to know each other 'we did not plan to breed them' and the puppies that resulted from the breeding were adorable, i kept one out of the first litter to be a pet, he's know 15months old and an absolutely wonderful companion. We're now on our third litter of puppies and have never had any trouble selling the puppies to good homes once they reach a suitable age and the new owners keep in touch and are very pleased with their pets, there havent been any health problems or issues whatsoever... so maybe people shouldnt be so quick to judge or make such remarks... "
Oh geez, where to begin!?! You just let your dogs breed, didn't do any research on breeding before it happened, never looked into getting your dogs fixed! I'm guessing, if they bred on their own, they were probably too young (under 2). I'm also guessing you never had either tested. The fact that you "didn't plan on breeding" is a lovely excuse for your first litter, but what about the other two? You've also put your toy breed female through giving birth 3 times in 15 months. Poor Baby! The pups from the first litter is only 15 months, so you can't possibly know if you're producing well tempered healthy dogs. Most genetic testing isn't even done until 2 years of age. You are a Back Yard Breeder if ever there was one. Are willing to take back any and all puppies is their owner's can't keep them? Did you require a spay/neuter contract or are fine with the new owners being as irresponsible as you are. (I can see how you would feel like a total hypocrit!) No, I don't like intentional crossbreeding, but you can bet your sweet bippy I would be saying the same thing if you were producing purebreds in the same super, irresponsible manner. You and people like you are a big part of the reason so many dogs die in shelters.
When one of there proud new owners gets them with the puppy lemon law, or there precious pet dies, maybe they will get it. That puppy lemon law is really getting some people, and they are paying hundreds of dollars for their mistakes. Keep it going lol
Rottluvr, excellent points, all. However, I doubt that it's going to do any good in this case. It seems she has her mind made up and doesn't care to understand all the reasons why what she's doing is so wrong.

I have a friend of a friend who pretty much BYB'd a dachshund just recently. After having a c-section, nearly losing mom and the mom killing all her babies within the day they decided breeding wasn't for them and are having the girl spayed. I was kind of a 3rd party whelping mentor through the friend of a friend. It is unfortunate they had to learn the hard way. These people too will someday learn the hard way. I think that is sometimes they only way they learn.
