I see you mention favoring the P/S breed while most of what I've read pushes towards the H/H as the difference in HP is large compared to the small power gain and speed being irrelevant. I was able to get a P/S that is uncommon and wasn't sure if I should stone it or hold out for the other breed.
I have a P/S Scourged Whelpling and I love him, personally.
Both Enzzo and I tend to favor Power-oriented pets, which means P/P, P/B, P/S or H/P - whichever gives the highest amount of power for that individual pet.
H/H pets do tend to have more health, yes - but they tend to actually be weaker because it takes significantly longer for you to deal damage, your shields absorb less damage, and your healing abilities generally heal you for less (unless they're percentage based, which most are not). The best tank I have is a P/P Emperor Crab.
There are a few pets where H/H (the humanoid special ability is percentage based) or S/S (some abilities hit MUCH harder if you go first) may be superior even when a Power breed is available, but they are far and few between.
A P/S Scourged Whelpling hits harder with his damage abilities, and because he's undead, he has a round of immortality anyway.
Personally, I'd stone the P/S and count myself lucky.
