Mutts.. That’s really all they are.

“maltipoo”, “scnoodle”, “”, “pug-a-poo”

Its a stupid name given to little mixes (or even big ones) to make them sound “special”. They aren’t, I promise you.
The shelter is filled with “designer dogs”.

o This is a quote from a website that is unbised either way o
“A “designer dog” is a relatively recent term, often used to describe a selectively cross-bred dog from purebred parents. Some dislike the term “designer dog,” and argue that it’s no different than any other mixed breed. However, a so-called designer dog is often priced as high, if not higher than, a . The cost for a designer dog can be as much as $ 2,500 US Dollars.

The most popular type of designer dog is the Labradoodle, a cross between a and a Poodle. The first Labradoodle was bred in Australia in the 1970s, when a service requested a breed of dog that would not cause allergy problems. The solution was to cross a Labrador -- the standard breed for a , due to its high intelligence and obedience -- with a Poodle, which is known for being a hypoallergenic breed. Though the Labradoodle has increased substantially in popularity, it is not currently recognized as an official breed by the American Kennel Club.

There are many other types of designer dog, including the Puggle -- a cross between a Beagle and a Pug, and the Cockapoo -- a Cocker Spaniel – Poodle mix. Many people believe that, by crossing two purebred dogs, you can eliminate health problems specific to the breeds, and the offspring will carry the best features of each breed. Skeptics believe that this is not the case, however; because designer dogs are not official breeds, their disposition and qualities are always unknown, and may vary greatly even among the same litter. ”

    IMO they are healthier than purebreds…they are 2 different purebreds bred together….just like kennel club purebreds today they were designer breeds before they were recognized by kennel clubs..

    It is a hot-dog with Gucci written all over it. Mustard is a definite “must-have” because it is yellow which is the in-color in fashion this year.

    designer dog breeds are when a dog breeds with another type, and when they have puppies they have different appearances to do with the parents, here are some examples:
    goldendoodle
    goldador
    chiweenie
    alusky
    beaglier ect

    Because they are given brand names as you see in clothing these days, what ever sounds appealing

    Maltipoo, pomapoo, all of those arent breeds but mutts, and these backyard breeders are trying to give them designer dog names appealing to gullible buyers
