Holly Mills: Could I breed my Maltipoo with a poodle and still call the puppies Maltipoos?
I have found a boy dog to mate with my Maltipoo. But it is a poodle. Will that still make my puppies purebred maltipoos?

A maltipoo is not full bred therefore whatever you breed with it will still only be a mutt. A cute mutt maybe, but a mutt nonetheless.

You should not breed your dog, period. Your dog is a mutt, and no responsible breeder anywhere would ever intentionally breed a mutt (there is no such thing as a 'purebred' maltipoo – that's just a cutesy name unscrupulous breeders slap on mutts so gullible people will buy them). It's either a Maltese or a poodle. Please, do the responsible thing and spay your dog. There is no need to contribute to the already overflowing animal shelters with more mongrels.

Not purebred but still maltipoos. I am so sick of everyone talking shit about mixed breed dogs. If you don't like them don't get one, but please mind your own business. I have a mixed breed (yorkie, bichon) puppy and he is the BEST dog I have ever seen, definitely the smartest. The vet told me that mixed breed dogs are much healthier than purebreds anyways because of problems with overbreeding and inbreeding.

Firstly there is no such recognized purebred breed (i.e, recognized by reputable Kennel Clubs) as a "Maltipoo". It is a made up name for a dog crossed between a Maltese and Poodle (2 recognized breeds).
However if there was such a thing as a Maltipoo and it was bred with a Poodle, following the logic above (i.e. a Maltese and a Poodle = a Maltipoo) then you would have to classify the puppies as Maltipoopoos.

I’m a little confused by the comments concerning this question. In order to be considered worthy of answering the questions asked without sarcasm or hostility, a person must own a purebred dog correct? Even though she posed her question incorrectly, I believe I understood the question. However, I don’t believe I will ask my question as I will get biased opinions without helpful or judgemental responses. Hopefully, I can find the answer to the question I seek elsewhere. I have a few “mutts” along with a purebred German Shepherd, all of whom have been spayed/neutered. I am a responsible pet owner. Life is too short to be angry over the breeding of designer dogs.
