Just Say NO To Designer Dogs!

With the long-time popularity, of the "breed" name cockapoo, used since at least 1970 and constructed by combining elements of its two contributing breeds (Cocker Spaniel/Poodle), it has become extremely common to find mixed-breed dogs named with breed names. Dog 'hybrids' are now being selectively bred. The term designer dogs is often used to refer to these crosses. Extremely few of these become mainstream "breeds" over long periods with determined breeders, and, as of 2006, Cockapoo and Labradoodle are still the only such combined names to make it into the dictionary. Nonetheless, names such as these commonly appear in for-sale ads and often lack consistency; a cross between a Maltese Terrier and a Poodle, for example, may be advertised as either a "Maltipoo" or a "Moodle".
