    Very nice dog! I would definately consider one for a pet. This may be better as a Hub.

    Welcome to Hub Pages we all love animal lovers!

    Ya, I would definitely make this a hub rather than a forum topic.  Include some photos as well to promote the breed.  I've found the more photos I include in my Hubs, the more traffic....if only to look at the slide show.  People are very visually oriented.  I know I am big_smile

      BTW:  This isn't a goldendoodle.....its an American Eskimo wearing mullet wig.  I don't know....he just insists on it, so I oblige.

    I don't know so much about the "doodle" part, but Goldies are awesome dogs! I used to breed them.

    Curious.  Clearly this would have made a great hub, BUT...

    Can she use it in a hub, or will the forum post be indexed, and therefore would trigger duplicate content if she were to transcribe it to a hub?

    You can post another hub. I'd definitely remove the initial thread here and post it as a second hub about the mix breed.

    It will be a while before the mix can be considered a breed, though. When you breed the mixes, and you get a litter of pups that don't all have similar characteristics, that's not a breed. When some pups looks poodle and some golden retriever, lab, whatever, you don't have a breed. It's just a mix.

    I personally, am not a fan of them. People charge hundreds for a mix breed dog, when that buyer can go adopt something from a shelter for less and have the dog spayed/neutered and vaccinated up to date.

    By the way, I'm pretty sure I saw a hub about you the other day... Just thought I'd give you a head's up. I couldn't find it today though. Not sure if it's still posted, but either way, it was enough to make you not so credible. Even if it wasn't true, it was enough for me.  Sorry. :-/

      Clearly one needs to look out for dud genes shining through. It will always indicate that the family is flawed in some respect. hmm

      I might add that this is not an appropriate place to publically feud with eachother! Neither party gains any credibility with members... Perhaps muzzles would help? hmm

        use the report button and when it asks for comments request that it be closed and deleted.

        You need to make this into a hub. It's too long for the forum. But I'm happy to hear about this breed of dog as I'm a dog lover.  Welcome aboard.

            What did you notify support about? donotfear was saying the initial thread should have been a hub not a forum post. If in regards to the comments, I don't think that there's anything HP can do.

            There are comments on one of my hubs, and I'm leaving them, as I can't prove either way. It's up to your customers to determine whether or not they feel they are true.

            From what I've seen of the, they are not attacking you at all, which is the only way I'd see them getting removed. The user is just making note of potential ethical concerns with your business.

        I have seen this dog and they are beautiful, but if what the poster is saying in regard to the breeders business is true, that the business is unethical, yes, the public has a right to know, but not in a public forum. it is against forum rules. (personal attacks) http://hubpages.com/help/forum_rules

        of course, someone would come and defend themselves, who are we to believe? to publicly fight with each other in a forum is hardly credible evidence of either being right or wrong.

        the public already is aware of these kind of puppy mills and they need to be exposed. dogs have the right to be bred decently and ethically. if not, it is a disservice to both the animals and society.  we've all heard the sad stories or have had experience with a dog from a puppy mill. I wouldn't buy a dog from a breeder who is not liscenced to breed.

        rebekahELLE, I don't think there's an official license to be a dog breeder, so it'd be quite hard for you to find a dog breeder to buy from then.

        I wouldn't say the attacks were personal. They just posed a concern about the other person's business. The other person (doodleplum) just doesn't like the accusations.  I don't recall reading anything that attacked doodleplum as a person, but just the business being unethical. I'm not saying that the accusations are true; just going off what sfj54 said.

        Oh, and to clear my name. I never said that doodleplum was not credible. All I wanted to do was to let her know that in case she wasn't aware I had seen a hub talking about her breeding services being unethical, and a few personal stories about her stalking or something and calling cops on other people or something like that. I don't remember.

        whitney, I'm not familiar with the breeding business. I was looking around to see what is common and accepted and I was surprised at what constitutes a commercial breeder in North Carolina. so in essence, a private breeder, as her website states she is, does not have inspections? it states a commercial breeder has to have the license to breed under USDA regulations. it just seems many of these private breeders could be getting away with a lot under no regulations or inspections.
        my oldest son has two pure bred dogs, one of them a king charles cavalier spaniel of which they purchased from an online dealer or contact, which now we know was a mistake. the dog has issues (brain) of which is sometimes common with this breed, but had they known more about the breeder first, they may not have purchased their puppy there. I guess it's common that these breeders do not issue refunds under any circumstances.  hmm

        I don't know about this particular situation. but all of her contact information is on her website which she has posted on her hubs.
