You've got to remember that all pure breed dogs at one time were a mixture of different breeds to perfect the standard. Take the American breed, the Chesapeake Bay Retriever - It's a Newfoundsland and Lab mix in its ancestory... Thru careful breeding we now have the standard Chessie today.
Some mixes are accidents - like my Shadow - Lab/Boxer - thrown away with his sister by time he was 5 wks old. Others are planned to perfect a new breed for the future. Just do some research and read about the different breeds and their backgrounds... They were "mutts" at one time too... How do you think some of these breeds came to be? They were created by man trying to figure out what they wanted for a dog.

The mastidanes look like a cute mix, not that I'm agreeing with designer breeding but the dog itself looks very sweet. mastidane mom, your pups are gorgeous! :D
and how do you think your Germans came about. do you think that they just miraculously came in as the master race with a pure blood line. all dogs are mixed breed just cos yours comes with kc papers doesn't make it any better in fact doesn't your dogs have serious health issues due to poor genetics arthritis problems with ears and so on.

My dog turns heads people always remark on how beautiful she is, and are generally interested to see what breed she is can you say the same for your dog??:rolleyes:
