Country of Origin: A mixed breed dog is any dog influenced by multiple breeds, whether its origins are known or unknown. Popular mixed breeds include the Puggle (Pug and Beagle), Ori Pei (Pug and Chinese Shar Pei), and Poodle mixes such as the Labradoodle (includes Labrador Retriever), Goldendoodle (includes Golden Retriever), and Yorki Poo (includes Yorkshire Terrier). Famous mixed breeds include Benji (played by a dog named ‘Higgins’), who appeared in the ‘Benji’ series of films, winning over viewers with his muttish good looks and charming mischievousness, and ‘Tiger’ from the Brady Bunch.

Size: For the medium mixed breed dog, weight can run between 20-50 pounds.

Temperament: Mixed breed dogs may or may not get along well with dogs and other pets. Mixed breed dogs should be socialized when young with people, other dogs, and any pets with whom they will be expected to live.

The world’s oldest dog was an Australian Cattle Dog named Bluey, who was put to sleep at 29 years, 5 months. Larger mixed breed dogs have a shorter average lifespan than small mixed breed dogs.

Most of the people who breed dogs that are

As the OP so quaintly put it - are well aware that there is a homeless pet situation.
What many in the rescue world don't realize that there isn't UNIVIERSALLY an overabundance of pups - or of many purebreds.....(Some areas have very, very few puppies for adoption)
Therefore - I refer back to my previous point that all dogs are not interchangeable.
I suppose someone who decides to get a puppy f(or the first or second time in their life) MIGHT easily be persuaded to adopt a 1-1/2 year old black lab/gsd/dobe/akita mix - instead of the pug puppy they were envisioning - but perhaps wouldn't
