Sure. You could start with 100 mutt puppies and waste a ton of time and get perhaps two who could, say, serve as military dogs. But why would you create that many dogs when you can get four or five suitable dogs out of a litter of 10? What are you going to do with all the puppies that don't pan out?

But the idea that mixing two of them is somehow wrong is just superstition and hypocrisy.
I gave circumstances in which I absolutely accept mixing breeds. But it had better be for a darned good reason, just like any other breeding.
