Please don't. Middleman for unethical breeders.

Hi and welcome to the forum. Please do not take offense to what people are saying about the "designer breeds". A lot of people on here have seen what BYB can produce and it is not pretty. Disease and temperment can only be guessed at with a BYB. I don't believe they meant you any disrespect. It is just a very touchy subject on here.

A "designer breed" is just a mutt with a fancy name. I also live in Pa. (quite close to you actually). I will ask around about a reliable breeder.

As for the type of dog you are looking for. I have 2 Shih Tzus and a 7 year old granddaughter. She has grown up around my dogs plus she has a lhapso alpso (sp?) and a GSD. She was taught at an early age the proper way to interact with a dog. It sounds like you have done the same thing. Small dogs are great but are a little fearful of little kids. My two weren't because I socialized them when they were puppies with all types of people. My male would defend my granddaughter to the death. They both love her and she is great with them.

Take your time and let your daughter help with the selection. I am sure you will make the right decision.

Again welcoma and please don't take offense to anything that is said here. We all get a little crazy when it comes to BYB.

Good luck and please keep us posted.
