An international animal welfare activist has branded designer dogs such as Labradoodles as 'Frankenstein' animals created by ruthless breeders and criminals. 

Madeline Bernstein, head of an animal welfare charity in Los Angeles, has written a book which she says is 'an expose into the lurid and very often criminal world of cross breeding'.

The designer dogs have become incredibly popular because thy have attracted the attention of celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Tiger Woods and Christie Brinkley.
