There is so much you can do with your girl. Train her, take her to shows and title her in Rally, Obedience, Agility, Flyball, Herding, Nosework. Get her CGC, get advanced CGC, put a therapy dog on her, and go take her to hospitals, or libraries and help people with her. Teach her to hunt. The possibilities are endless.
If breeding is something you want to do, than while you are training your bitch, determine which of her traits are from which breed, and find which will be best for you. All of what you do with the mix, will be good experience for when you are ready to breed responsibly.
75% of the dogs in shelters are mixes. What this means is that when your bitch presents you with a healthy litter of 12 to 14 puppies, your relatives and friends fade into the woodwork and then you have to find homes for these puppies. And you are condemning them to the bottom of the barrel when it comes to owners. Yes, yes, there are folks here that have dogs they did not pay for, and they treat them as well as pups that were given 1500-2500 for. But they are the cream of the crop. A lot of folks, think easy come, easy go, and when the pup becomes an adolescent nuisance, or they have to move, if they did not pay for the puppy, a lot of them will not call you. They will just dump the dog at a shelter, and the dog could be dead before they leave the parking lot. Or they will drop the dog in the woods somewhere. The thing is, the costs are about the same to produce a mongrel than to produce pure-bred puppies. The work and time involved is the same, if you do it right.
Really, think about doing this. About not doing this. Have fun with this one, and learn from her. Then you will know what to look for when you go to buy a breeding prospect.
