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 pure bred 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 nontheless.

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 'pure bred' maltipoo – that's just a cutesy name unscruplulous breeders slap on mutts so gulliable 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.
Add: I just saw the other questions you've asked here and I've gotta say, you are one sick person. Either you are a troll and you get a kick out of infuriating people who genuinely care for animals, or you are ignorant and should not be entrusted with the care of a houseplant, let alone an animal. Please try reading a book about animal care and grow up.
If I get violated for saying this, so be it. It needed to be said.

Firstly there is no such recognised purebred breed (i.e, recognised by reputable Kennel Clubs) as a "Maltipoo". It is a made up name for a dog crossed between a Maltese and Poodle (2 recognised 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.
