Wow.... Thats very worrying, even more so that a potential owner would be prepared to choose a puppy in this way... There are no words to even describe how i feel about that.....

They say nothing about location...parents or aything! and they have to contact you...there is only one larger scale breeder to my knowledge in Ontario...and they breed a number of different types which I don't like...so another home/hobby breeder it is for me.

Ok, So when I first got Lady I got her from a home breeder....a hobby breeder and didn't go about it in an educated way...Luckily we have a fantastic dog who is healthy, has a great temperment..I could go on and on.
Now that I am educated more on the process one should undertake i am doing my best to find a reputable breeder for my second cockapoo and I have to say I have never been more disgusted in my entire life. I have found not one single breeder who is breeding for the love of a dog. Every "cockapoo" breeder that I find is either breeding so many different types of dogs that it concerns me. or they are operating under more than one name, or when I google their name for reviews there is issues with people and their dogs. I am just so shocked at the cruelty and mistreatment of animals,
I just found out that a year ago one of the "breeders" near one of the "breeders" that I was trying to look into, handed over 100+ dogs to the shelters.
I just don't know what people are doing.

And I just want to add....the breeders that I was looking at are from the so called Cockapoo registry....so anyone who is planning on making such a website needs to be extremely strict on the breeders that they allow to advertise on their site.

Puppy farms really get me angry.
Last weekend I spent time with friends from a Spaniel rescue and they had with them 2 ex breeding bitches rescued from puppy farms. Both about 9 years old but thats just a guess, they are loverly dogs but will never be re-homed as they will never be pets and have health problems. One is very thin and walks with a wobbly back end, and the other is overweight but not over fed just cant walk very far, both conditions coursed by spending their lives in cramped conditions and no exercise. But they are lucky that they will live the rest of their lives in a loving foster home.

This website is in the U.S. too and what's weird is that they occasionally list puppies you can find elsewhere, except their prices are astronomical. I figure its a group of puppy mill people trying to make money at any cost. Too bad they can't take it down.

;_; makes me sad, poor puppies! I hope that they can be shut down and the doggies can be looked after better.
Do you have something like the RSPCA in Ontario?

It's awful - I pity the poor owners too, if they're daft enough to think that a wesbite like this would guarantee them a puppy that is good with children, or any of the other characteristics, then they're daft enough to not realise the work that has to go into trying to achieve those charactersitics AFTER you've brought your puppy home.

They seem to be related to www.purebredbreeders.com which is based in Florida, hmmm. They sell all kinds of puppies, not just cockapoos. The prices are all in US dollars. It does say on the website that you posted that the puppies may not be from the Toronto area. I wonder if ANY of them are? I am sure the puppies would need to be shippped to their new owner. I can't believe how much the puppies are and I wonder if those prices include shipping. They are so very cute, though.

Just recently, on kijiji.ca, I saw an ad from a person who wanted to sell puppies FOR breeders. I am guessing this is the same idea, on a much bigger scale.
