I simply don't believe the claim that mutts can't do those jobs. But it doesn't matter. I'm OK with people breeding purebreds. (That is, I've come to terms with it. We use their species in an ethically questionable way and we have for many thousands of years. It's not nearly as bad as we treat the other species we use so...) But the idea that mixing two of them is somehow wrong is just superstition and hypocrisy.
