Dogs by Design
How to Find the Right Mixed Breed for YouBook - 2007
Specially mixed breeds are all the rage. That's right: according to such media outlets as The Today Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show , and The New York Times , such "designer dogs" as the puggle, labradoodle, schnoodle, and bagel hound are today's pick of the litter. Filled with more than 150 color photos of adorable man-made mutts and their purebred parents, Dogs by Design explores both sides of this hot new trend. Written by bestselling author Ilene Hochberg, it examines how the mixed-breed craze began, what its future might be, and the unexpected controversy surrounding these canine creations--and also helps would-be owners determine if a hybrid is right for them. Included are the characteristics of each dog, input from owners and breeders, and a comprehensive list of breeders with their contact information.
