The Kennel clubs of the countries where the dog originates, makes the decision which will be accepted as an individual breed. The designer dogs of today are in line to become the new breeds added onto the lists of purebred dogs. How they go about issuing 'papers'  or pedigrees is another matter. That is  probably why it takes so long for a new breed to be accepted  into the club.  Mixed breed  dogs  tend  to be healthier, because  they  are not as susceptible to diseases  passed  on  as  a  result of  inbreeding.
