I am sorry that you took my post to be "snobbish"
If you'll notice, I too own a mongrel dog. She's a great little pup, and has blossomed beautifully from the shelter dog she was a year and a half ago. I wouldn't trade her for the world.
What I meant by "desirable" was that when people think of these Doodle dogs, they are looking for a standard. They want a non-shedding, friendly, calm-ish dog. When in reality, when you mix the 2 breeds that perfection people seek is often not the outcome.
Unfortunately, the vast majority, if not all, of these Doodle dogs that I have encountered not only have shed a ridiculous amount, but also had a near unmanageable coat. On top of it many of these breeders do not do health testing that a good breeder should, and thereby you end up with another unpredictable aspect.
I don't mean undesirable by being an unwanted, bad, or otherwise inferior dog. Just that the wanted traits are not always there.
