Before anyone thinks I'm "doggin" (hahahahaha) on mutts, my pup is a mutt, too. We paid $50 for her.

I think people have come up with some cutesy name for English Springer Spaniel/Border Collie mixes and tried to sell them for a lot of money. Again, oy.

All I can say is wow...or maybe wow! I just don't get it. I am trying to understand why the prices are so high for these mixed breeds..but I can't!

A "Fox Red" Lab is just a Yellow Labrador with really dark color. They're still Labradors, just deep in color. There are a couple of Red Yellows at my kennel club

Ah, OK. But if you look at the ones on that site, they are really bad-looking labs. I am a little more used to the "English" labs and I know "American" labs have a leaner look, but still.

They're poorly bred labs being used for more poor breeding. Not all American Labs are uggos, even the well bred fieldies, but no, their Labs aren't nice to look at at all.

Bayley cost me 150.00. Could be cause no one's come up with a cute name for a Shep/Husky mix. Although in Agility clubs here in Canada, she'd be an All Canadian..which I do like :)

what would be wrong with a Shusky? or Huskerd? LOL

I think a lot of the designer folks pick the stupid names before even breeding the dogs. Shameful! IMO

I thought of Hussy! She can certainly act like one around the boys.

Oh look, Petfinder found some retriever mixes in your area!

That Golden x Dachshund mix reminds me of a dog my sister had. We thought he was a Chocolate Lab x Dachshund and that picture makes me think we were right. Talk about a crazy mutt...! He would have benefited from some good training (which he never got) but he had all the worst traits of both breeds. He wasn't very big, but he was like a tsunami of bad behavior.

I actually stumbled upon a breeder of "Doxadors" one time. It made me sad.

By the way, when I first heard about these dogs, they were Flat Coat x Golden, not Cocker Spaniel x Golden
The people that are breeding the Flatcoat x Cockers have had to change the name of their "creation," because the Golden x Cocker folks apparently have cornered the market on the "Comfort Retriever" thing. The FCR x Cockers are now being called "Chatham Hill Retrievers," or "Chatties," which sends shivers up my spine...

And anyone interested in Fox Red Labradors, there is a lot of info on this site:

Blast! Here I thought it was a real attempt to create a breed with an unbelievable drive to bring you a blanket.
I guess that means the Chesapeake Bay Retriever really has his work cut out.

I have nothing against mutts. I've owned a mutt or two in my life and they were great dogs. I would never pay to get a mutt from "breeder".

Yes, and we've had Mr. Chatham hill retrievers himself on here, he got banned.

To the OP, you won't find the up for these mixes you're looking for here. They don't come from responsible breeders and we don't promote those who breed just to make a buck. In all seriousness check out rescue for similar breed mixes or go to one of the reputable purebred breeders of either Cockers or Goldens. You can find them through the National and local breed clubs.

Gerkies, I like that! Kind of like a Gherkin!

My local cocker rescue gets these quite often, usually around 4 months when the vet bills start outweighing the cuteness. Ear problems and allergy problems galore. That's where I would start.
