Thanks again for the replies.
I have had a pound puppy as well as 2 pure breed dogs. The pound puppy had several health and personality issues. The two pure bread dogs had beautiful personalities but 1 of them physically was a mess from 6 months of age. Requiring surgery and on going medical attention for the rest of his life. He came from a "reputable" breeder that I was put on to through the Canine Association of Victoria and came with papers and parent hip scores etc etc etc.. but we still had issues with him. I understand that not all breeders are like this. But I also believe that not all breeders of "designer" breeds are in it just for the money, just like a believe that not all so called reputable breeders are what they say they are.
Just from my experience with looking for a puppy I think the whole industry needs to be more regulated.
Sigh..... I am really just over the whole thing!!! I might just get a cat instead

What about a dog between 1 and 2 years old from a rescue? That way you know it's healthy and sane?

Hmm, then I'd say either look for another purebred from a reputable breeder and trust the last experience was a fluke or head to a shelter and get a nice rescue mutt pup.

We bought both of our Labradoodles from them and we couldn't be more pleased. Both of our boys are the love of our lives. They are healthy, happy and just amazing.
I was first recommended to them by two of our neighbours who also bought their dogs from them (one Japanese Spitz and the other is a Moodle) I found them to be very professional, helpful and spoke with us for over an hour when we picked up our boys. You will find that there seems to be a lot of "petty" politics amongst breeders and shelters so your head will be spinning when you get all kinds of advice from breeders and shelters. Our dogs and my neighbours dogs have excellent temperaments and yes there are strict laws against puppy farms so there is no chance our dogs have come from a puppy farm. Best of luck.

Buying a mutt is buying a mutt... Buying a labradoodle is buying a mutt and supporting something that shouldn't be happening....

You shouldn't buy a puppy with a 2 yr old as you are looking at possible issues such as mouthing and biting the child. If you insist on a pup, go to a shelter or pick a different breed

I'm pretty sure our problems with puppy farms or mills are not petty. And if the laws were truly strict, then puppy farms wouldn't be known for the substandard (read: neglectful) care they provide their dogs. But whatever helps you sleep at night. ... Pretend they don't exist or that a broker doesn't buy from anything but responsible, ethical breeders.

(PS. Kinda sounds like a seed for the biz to me....)

Some people are so blind, even tho they can see.

We all have the same feeling about Designer Dogs, and just have to keep plugging away, trying to educate those that want the cutsie named mutts.

As Pawzaddict says, a mutt is a mutt, no matter what you call them.

Aside from all the BYB stuff, you're pretty unlikely to find a breeder OR a rescue who will sell/adopt to a family with a two-year-old.

Earlier this year the rescue I worked with had to let 20 dogs go to death row because they were full from cleaning up one of these operations. I'm fine with being labelled petty if it means we don't have to waste space cleaning up these messes.
