Hey guys don't be fooled by mixed breed dogs. Kita is our 1st mixed breed pup and I've always paid big bucks for AKC Pure Breed pups thinking it was the better way to go **wronggggg**. We adopted her from out local animal shelter and she's been nothing but a plesaure since. We got her at 3 months and she's now 6 months and with the exception of loose runny stool and her horrible gas all has been great. I switched her food from Science Diet Lamb & Rice to Blue Buffalo Puppy a week ago and still no change so I'll start adding a table spoon of canned Pumpkin in her food today. She crate trained really well and welps when she needs to go or when out of her crate she walks to the back patio slider and paws at the blinds & glass. She also loves to play fetch and learned to return, sit and heal fairly quick. We love her and so does our Miniture Poodle.
