I'd suggest going through a rescue. You won't find any kind of reputable breeder that will breed those 2 dogs together.

You will find a lot of these mixed breeds at a shelter. Please don't purchase online, you will be probably supporting a puppy mill.

You should try calling a shelter and let them you what kind of dog you want and see if they'll call you if one come in or if someone is planning of giving one up. I did but the dogs where a lot older than I wanted.
