Pets Board FAQ

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to The Nest's new community platform. In our old forums, were had some links in the top banners of the boards where we had some helpful links. As of right now, we are currently unable to include links in that location of the community -- but the good news is, this post will remain sticky so you can access this link to Pets FAQs.

Please be in touch if you have any questions!

Re: Pets Board FAQ

  • Hello, I'm new and here in hopes of support. A dear friends baby minpin was either taken or went missing over the holiday. Is there a place I can post a site and flyer? This is the Ca area.

    Most gracious thanks.
  • I find it irksome that this post asks us not to use the term "labradoodle" or other name for a hybrid dog or some other mix. I understand that this is because you don't want to promote puppy mills, but I have a labradoodle that my husband and I rescued from a parking lot, we didn't pay a dime for him, and I like to call him a labradoodle because that's what he is (although I generally say knock-off labradoodle because he has a few other things mixed in there too according to DNA test.) I call my other dog a toy sheepdog terrier which is a totally made up name but i prefer to specify what they are as close as possible rather than just saying "mutt." By the way, there is a link to an article describing Labradoodles as "mongrels" which I find offensive, although the word might have a different connotation in Australia. These rules seem pretentious and glorify purebreds, which can also come from horrible breeding backgrounds.

  • "Labradoodle" is not a thing. It's not a breed. Your dog is a lab/poodle mix, you assume, as you don't know who the parent dogs are. If you want to be as clear as possible about your dog's assumed mix, say "lab/poodle mix." 
  • I actually DNA tested my dogs, so I do know what his parents were. they were a Labradoodle (or Lab/Poodle mix) and a Lab mix. Either way, I still like to say knock-off Labradoodle. I know it isn't a breed and it doesn't mean I support puppy mills.

    The dna tests are full of malarkey.


    And you still own a poodle or lab mix.
