How do you find a good breeder?

Any suggestions on how to find a good local breeder? My friend is looking for a cockapoo, she had to put her Bichon down a few weeks ago. I am not a fan of the AKC after watching a special on them and their "guidelines" for dogs.

IMO there is no such thing as a "good breeder" of cross bred dogs. No good breeder would allow their purebred dogs to be used in such a program, so automatically, you are working with poorly bred individuals of the parent breeds. If your friend wants a mixed breed, tell her that there are MANY nice dogs in shelters and rescue. The world doesn't need more.

My friend is aware of the many dogs in shelters and has thought about going that route. She had to put her Bichone down 2 weeks ago so I am not pushing her in any direction, just helping her out where I can.
