|Keep in mind however, that rescue dog or no rescue dog, by referring to her as a 'Chiweenie', when people see her and want her, they're MOST likely to go to BYB's and millers who breed these designer dogs to get the mix you have. In reference to your post in another thread - it's not so much that there's breed snobbery going on, as people are tired of designer breeders promoting these mix-breed dogs that AREN'T properly bred, nor for the right reasons. Nobody has a problem with anyone rescuing them - they need rescuing too, but people DO have a problem with the promotion of byb's and millers, and do have a problem with encouraging and supporting the idea that they're somehow 'better', or 'cuter'.
There's a designer name to refer to the mix I have - do I use it? Absolutely not and I never will because it encourages people to look at the BYB's and millers instead of at shelters.
And what exactly CAN the kennel clubs do about these breeders other than educate and encourage people to go to REPUTABLE breeders?
