    aw..the pups are so cute...but to me, she's a byb. Good intentions or not, I'd still say byb mainly because she selects the females through her shop/customers.

    I don't like it. Why would anyone "breed" mixes? Not to mention, why would someone who calls themselves a "breeder" solicit any unspayed female that comes in? Disgusting!

    Thank you Wolf_Q!

    My vote is backyard breeder.

    The best thing about buying a mix is that heriditary problems are gone. Cocker's have bad ears, Shihtzu's have bad skin, when you mix them with a Poodle - NO MORE PROBLEMS!

    There are plenty of mixes that need a home!!! I've seen this type of breeding before and I think it's absolutely stupid!!

    I agree, BYB. The fact that she "breeds" mixes and sells them for hundreds of dollars, is sickening. And if her expertise is in Poodles and miniiature breeds, what is she doing breeding "other" purebreeds, like Cockers and Bassets??? Most reputable breeders are devoted to their breed, famliar with that breed's personality type, breed standard, potential proclivities to health issues, etc. Ugh. Well meaning, maybe. But wrong, wrong, wrong!!

    Backyard breeder and huge bullsh*tter

    RESPONSIBLE breeders breed up to 2 purebreds, max, and not with eachother. Cockapoo, Yorkie poo, Maltipoo, that poor poodle, let's breed it with something else!

    I solicit female dogs to breed at my grooming shop. I tell people how cute their females are and they usually breed with my boys and that's how I get my pups to sell. I get pick and I usually help sell the whole litter. I have been breeding Poodle mixes for 10 years.

    I like too many things and get all confused and hung-up running
    from one falling star to another till i drop. This is the night, what it does to you.
    I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion.

    I vote byb also..... I just don't like it!

    They are all so cute, but there are oh so many of them!!
    It's a shame to think of what may happen to the ones that people don't adopt while there still "little & cute"



    I wish I could take a few just to make sure they have a wonderful life!!

    SAD!!!!

    At first I read it, and I thought, "Is this for real?"

    A BIG time BYB, and if they shipped their pups out,
    I would even say, the beginings of a possible puppy mill in my opinion.
