I can understand proplr not wanting to mess with purebred perfection> But we have and we raise Yorkie-Poos and they are some of the best dogs we have ever had they are lap-dogs and they love everyone they meet. we also raise other purebred toy breeds and the Yorkie-Poos are just as great you are realy missing out people. non over 4 lbs and BEAUTIFUL.

I may love all dogs, but when I read the comments and see how blind some designer dog lover are I get really sad and disgusted. And they wonder why designer dogs or their owners get bad comments. They don't have a prupose and the owners look at just their "cute", "adorable", or whatever pet as an example and fail to see the big picture. You can't just look at your dog for stuff like this. Plus you can cause major problems too. Man I don't really approve of doubling the pet OVERPOPULATION with "adoriable" designer dogs.

No, not ALL dogs are "designer" dogs. I think if you go back far enough the dog was a wolf. So yeah. You take the fastest wolf and you get a fast dog. Same with the strongest and so on. But over time PEOPLE took the dogs for granted and either let them go or didn't care about them, so we ended up with dogs on the streets and breeding on their own. It took caring people to get the dogs back to their pure state.

Personally I love all dogs, but I believe that there is no point in breeding Designer dogs. There are perfectly good dogs in shelters you can care for and leave the breeding to the professionals. Hybrids shouldn't have their own standards.

I have a three year old puggle. He has the best of both breeds, and some of the worst. Smart, cuddly, expressive face, playful, but stubborn and tends to get fat. He does not bark like a beagle, and doesn't have the breathing problems of a pug. When you see a puggle, you know exactly what it is. They all seem to resemble each other. I can picture them becoming a breed of their own sometime. Low maintenance dog. He loves to sit and watch TV. Barks only at dogs, horses, and elephants. He is a little standoffish with strangers, but warms up quickly. Altogether, he is a perfect dog, well, most of the time. We call him "Bandit" since he loves to steal things.

I have a so called "designer dog." She is a Maltipoo. I have received many negative comments about my spending money on a mutt even though she was less expensive than my pure bred toy poodle was 14 years ago. I have no problem paying for someone to breed these adorable little guys. My little one is very sweet and very smart. She is a bit of a "Klingon." She loves to be held! I enjoy having a dog that doesn't look like every other dog around. I think that the worst thing that has happened to the mixed breeds is sticking them with the designer dog label and celebrities picking up on it. It makes them sound like an overnight fad. And,yes, I did look in shelters in a 6 state radius when I was ready to get a puppy. The only dogs I could find were large and shed a lot, something I can't handle. Thanks for producing a magazine for those of us with designer dogs." After all, go back far enough, and all dogs were once designer dogs.

I own a Puggle, and he is the most adorable thing. He is very lovable and a great lap dog. I actually rescued him from the county animal shelter. That was his second time being in the shelter. When I got him home and read up on Puggles I found out both previous owners just did not give him the attention that he needed. He was just under a year old and he was very easy to finish house training, and adapted very well to the new environment and the 2 kids. He is a great dog.

there is no such thing called "designer breed". people, don't buy hybrids! might as well adopt a pet from the shelter rather than buying a hybrid dogs. DO NOT SUPPORT THESE BOLO BREEDERS!

I agree what Kristen, from Pittsburgh. If you only looking a pet and friend, do not pass up going to a dog shelter in your town. Who know you may find a purebreed or designer dog. As Kristen said you will get to save a loving dogs live.

Actually I think the designer craze is sad and needless. Gone are the days when hybrid vigor was needed to be produce a better working dog. If your only looking for a pet please consider a shelter dog. All shapes, sizes and personalities can be found there. Plus you get to know your saving a life not adding to the pet overpopulation.

Great Article. I am the owner of two Chipoos (Chihuahua/Poodle cross). They are the most wonderful dogs I have ever owned. I was getting a lot of negative comments from purebred owners about my 'Designer Dogs' so I started a website to allow owner such as myself a place to share their stories, pictures, information and more about their dogs. was started about 7 months ago and we now have over 300 proud 'Designer Dog' breeders and owners. I just wanted to say thank you for your article and magazine. It is things like this that will help spread the awareness about these wonderful dogs and hopefull eliminate some of the

I have a Shih Poo and she is adorable! The vet said she will should have less health issues and the Pet Insurance was less than for a purebreed.

I have two friends that have "designer dogs" and are also very pleased.
