What's the purpose of an Aussiedor?

(i own one). Now, I know how many backyard breeders are turning out designer dogs at the moment and i only have support for the 'Australian Labradoodle', which is a dog in development in australia under government guidance by the Australian Guidedog Association, to provide guidedogs for allergy sufferers. Even after 30 yrs of cross breeding 8 different dog types, the research is still only beginning. this has unfortunatly led to back yard breeders crossing poodles with just about anything in a false claim of hyper-allergenic dogs. But I came across a 'breeders' website who 'specialises' in aussiedors. A cross between an Australian Shepherd and a labrador. Now, anyone who has ever visited a pound will have come across at least one German Shepherd Lab cross and a few collie lab cross. Why oh why would anyone purposefully cross these two dogs, and what stupid people would pay £100's for one? Im amazed!!!
Then I come across a man who's next door neighbours dog broke through the fence to his dog, resulting in golden x lab pups. He's giving the pups for free to vetted homes, with puppy packs, at 12 weeks, fully vetted and health checked, shots etc, 6 months free pet insurance, and has the cert on show that the dad has now been neutered, and the mum will be spayed on recovery. Okay they made a mistake but at least took responsibility for it, at alot of cost. Another page shows 'Goldendor Retrievers' for sale $400? Arrrgghh, making me angry!!!! lol. Soz, had to rant. If they are going to build websites, put all this work in then why cant they breed responsibly for fecks sake??
Update: Why oh why would anyone pay £450 for an australian shepherd x lab? why?
