I'm sure you could easily find one in a shelter.

Mixes should NEVER be delibrately bred...It doesn't matter waht kind of mix it is...the only responsible reason to breed is to add something of value back to the breed not ot just add a litter of puppies.Responsible breeders are careful on the selection of their breeding dogs, they research pedigrees, they do genetic health testing, they work hard to improve a breed...people that breed mixes...well 1) they have no breed to improve on, 2) they have nothing ot add except a litter of mixed puppies 3) most don't have a clue what is in the pedigrees for health 4) most don't do any type of genetic testing 5) they don't take into consideration if the breeds they are throwing together are really compatible or not (the "puggle is a real good example of this) I could go on but this is a general summary.
People that delibrately breed mixes are BYB and/or mills.
People should not encourage these types of breeders by buying puppies from them..if someone is looking for a mix a shelter or rescue is the place to go.

Okay- here's the deal-

There are a zillion breeders out there with purebred dogs of ALL qualities. Even people with really bad dogs want to breed.

IF you had a stunning specimin of a breed, that had health tests and was correct..... Assuming you LIKE the breed, since you own one... why not find a mate of the same breed???

What usualy happenes is this-

Someone has a purebred dog that is ugly. The dog may or may not be registered, and they have zero desire to see anything about it preserved. So they mate it to ANY other dog they can find and call it "designer" so they can just sell its puppies anyway.

Do you REALLY want your puppies formative early weeks spent with someone too lazy to even find their bitch a dog of the same breed??

And for two breeds FAMOUS for crippling diseases (EXPENSIVE crippling diseases) breeding them together will not magically make the diseases disappear, either. Dogs are all the same species. There is no such thing as "hybrid vigor". Two crappy dogs will produce only more crappy dogs.

If you can't find a purebred dog breed you love, keep looking. There is one for you somewhere on this planet.
Then find a breeder who CARES that the dog you will love is born healthy and stays that way.

Good luck
Randa

dane-o -doodles or podanes, Maybe dadooles! There we go. OP - I've known a few poodle mixes - a labradoodle and a cokcerdoodle ( or something like that - ) both had to be the dumbest animals I EVER met in my life. Drove the owners nuts. I'd keep looking ....good luck!

I live with a Lhasa Poo as I have mentioned previously.
DIFFICULT is the word that comes to mind.

I had the opertunity to confer with THREE area dog trainers recently (for my Pitbull) and the chit chat was VERY interesting. ALL three, at different times, spontaneous mentioned they are now avoiding working with several breeds.
I cracked up. They naming the SAME breeds!
Any of the OODLES, any of the POOS. And "TeddyBears" (Bichon/Shih Tzus) were were mentioned too.

It could be the owners, it could be the breeds, and maybe its just a regional fluke. But interesting, none the less!

Other than cuteness, what is making you consider a dane/poodle cross?? I only ask as it seems many people look at getting a poodle crossed with their favorite breed as they think they'll get the non-shedding trait from the poodle. The problem many of our friends are now having is that their goldendoodles, labradoodle, etc, still shed so they didn't get the main benefit that they were looking for out of that cross and basically have a cute mutt for which many are paying lots of money for (some more than a well-bred dog of their favorite breed). Many of the "cross" breeders don't tell you that it's pot luck whether you get the non shedding versus shedding, even with future generation crosses, and when you're picking the puppy, you may not know yet if you got one that sheds or not. Just another thing to consider.
