Designer Dog?! (With pictures)

Post by FJrocks003 » Mon Mar 23, 2020 5:03 pm

My dog, Rubix, is a mix breed between a Shiba Inu and a Jack Russell and I never really thought anything of it until one day I was browsing the web when I found something interesting. Apparently Shiba Inu-Jack Russells or "Jack Inus" are considered a designer dog breed! Who would've thought that my quirky, little jerkface of a dog is a designer dog breed?!

I did promise pictures, so here you go:

This is Rubix on the first day of spring enjoying the warm weather.

The link doesn’t work. You’ll have to either post or store the picture on a website or post it directly using the Tapatalk mobile app.

so-called designer dogs are mutts. at best they are accidental, at worst they are bred by people who are profit-driven. either way, they are due to human irresponsibility and they should not be glorified or given cute names.
And yes, I do have one of what would be considered one of them - he is a mutt, and that is what I refer to him as. I rescued him from the Northwest Territories.

Least you know that it is a mutt. I was at a Petsmart years talking about dogs and food that’s good for them. This lady was going out of her way to convince me her cockapoo was a purebred dog.

I do understand that a designer dog is just another type of mix, but just thought it was cool for my dog to get a little title like that. Trust me, I would never buy a dog just because it had a fancy label and my dog was an accident so I don't see any obvious harm in owning him.

I'll always buy mutts from shelters. I especially like the old dogs. When I adopt I'm going to get the old ones and let them live the rest of their lives in pure food bliss, ha! :lol:

I'd still love to see the doggie pic if you get a minute. ImageThe link doesn't work for me.
I got my Pomeranian at 8 weeks old from a rescue in NJ. His sister was up for adoption too, but my landlord at the time wouldn't have allowed two dogs. I think of her often and hope she got a good forever home.
