A Pomapoo is a mutt, not a registered breed! A breeder may be an AKC registered breeder - which doesn't take much - but Pomapoos are not a registered "breed!"
Jerrie's Pet Place had Pomapoo listed as one of the breeds they sell.
They can call it what they like - it is not a breed - it is a "designer" dog - a mutt.
So if I breed to random dogs and end up with a new breed the dog is a mutt? Im just trying to understand what makes a dog a breed and what makes it a mutt?
A mutt is a mongrel = An animal resulting from various interbreedings, especially a dog of mixed or undetermined breed. A pedigree (usually registered) is a dog of 1 breed. (per Webster's Dictionary)
Breeds are determined by the kennel clubs, such as the American Kennel Club (AKC), United Kennel Club (UKC) and others. The breed groups include hunting, sporting, etc. Breed groups distinguish dogs bred for different purposes.
