I think that mutt should be changed. A mixed breed dog is loved just as much by it owner as a purebred but they get this negative label. In Canada mixed breed dogs that compete in agility are called All Canadian" I think this is a great start.

I think Dog Fancy mentioned one rescue that called mixed breeds "Blends".

I think Lacie is right. Even some of the pure breed dogs in the AKC categories have been bred with two other breeds to become a breed that they still recognize to be pure, (i.e Labrador
Retriever).

I agree that a new name could change the attitude, perspective and opinion of those who look down upon mix breed/mutts. I really don't understand the hype or disapproval of these kinds of dogs. Besides, they still know how to be a dog and behave like a dog. They still have the same loyal and lovable traits that pure bred dogs possess. And one more thing, if you open your heart to them they will still become mans best friend. All one has to do is give them a
chance.

I think a new term should be invented although I haven't thought of a name yet. I'll try to come up with one and post in a couple of days. Great Article.

I would name them Nummies because they have a number of the "pure breeds" in them. they may be mixed but it took pure breeding to start it somewhere. so in my point of view they're all pure bred. some just have more of a variety of them than others.
