(professionally speaking, not someone whose dog accidentally had puppies)
What influenced you to do so versus obtaining one from rescue? Interested in honest benefits here.
If you like mixed breed dogs, is there a certain "type" you like best?
(My first and current dog is a Lab/Shepherd mix...and now whenever I look at adoptable dogs, I am always pulled toward the Shepherd mixes even though that wasn't really my favorite breed before. Lifelong soft spot for Golden Retriever and Lab mixes, though. Collie/retriever crosses are basically the prettiest dogs on the planet to me.)
