|Sanka, that's where the information is incorrect, because I KNOW and have seen the sites of 'doodle breeders who are past using simply 2 purebred parents. They may have F2's and do some back crossing, cross in more purebreds, etc but many of them now aren't working with just a poodle and a random other breed. Many of the breeders do have 3, 4 or more 'doodles they breed other 'doodles from.
That's why it's important to talk about development of a breed and the base on which that must sit. Because while people can (i hope..) understand that breeding 2 different purebreds together, does not a breed make, people have a harder time understanding why 'doodles are still NOT a breed even if both parents are 'doodles of some sort.
