|Well, actually, the goldendoodle and labradoodle were bred to be seeing eye dogs and other service dogs for people alergic to dog fur. Still doesn't make sense to me, personally- because if the people breeding them were REALLY interested in making them a breed, they'd be trying to get them out there and recognized.
Now, the yorkie poo, shi poo, etc. Are just fads. Like the teacup craze. People (for some odd reason) think they're adorable. So, they buy them. Sadly, because of this, it results in A LOT of poodle X's being dropped off at shelters and surrendered at rescues. That's why if I ever meet anyone that wants one of these poodle X's, I tell them "Check your local shelter. Want a link to a poodle rescue? There is almost always some kind of poodle mix there."
On a side note, cockapoos have been breed for YEARS and still no recognition. They were being bred when my mom was my age. And, my mom is well into her fourties now.
Also, it supposedly decreases the health issues in poodles.
I don't know why or how. But, they breed them supposedly for people who want poodles but don't wanna deal with the health problems. Makes you wonder what they do with the puppies born with health problems? I say, if you don't wanna put up with what a poodle may come with, maybe a poodle isn't for you.
