Its still sad for our mixes too...That is alot, but remember, also, that when you search by breed that it is going to include the mixes. I've searched and it's sad how many it said was of a certain breed, but when you looked at the posting, the dog looked nothing like what they said.
I don't mind mixes either. I got Kizzie and I thought she was a Chi mix because she was dropped off at a home shelter who had her posted on Petfinder. She's not standard but she's a Chi. I didn't know that at the time though. She could have easily grown to be the size of who knew lolI love petfinder for what it is, a site dedicated to helping shelters/rescuers/foster place animals in permanant homes. Many people (myself included) don't mind mixes if the dog is a good match for the home. Though, there are many irresponsible breeders and pet owners out there for sure.
I'm always on Petfinder. That's where I got Kizzie! =) She was a drop off at a home shelter, bless her. I always type in my zipcode and St. Louis zipcode and it comes up well over 400 pages. But that's all the way in other states as well. Even with JUST my zipcode they go all over. They just do your area first. Plus not all of them are bad breeders some of them are from animal shelters, home shelters and pounds, fosters parents trying to find homes. It's a world of animals looking for homes but not all for the wrong reasons! SOME are on there that are blah but I think Petfinder is great! :hello1: Yes there are a lot of mixed dogs on there =( I see a ton of mixed puppies and it's so sad I just found 3 black little Chis but they are mixed with something else.
