I also use to think that puchasing puppies from breeders or from pet stores was an acceptable thing to do. However, I am 100% against purchasing puppies from pet stores, since they come from puppy mills. After getting into fostering dogs, I realized that there are so many amazing dogs out there that need homes, why would you deny them the opportunity of a loving home, just to have a pure bred pup? We adopted 9 months ago, and we have decided that all our dogs from here on out will be rescued!! I also agree that all pets should be spayed and neutered! It doesn't matter how responsible you think you are, when a male dog senses a female in heat, they will do anything to mate. I have friends whos dog chewed through a wall to get to female. Another person I know, there dog broke through a fence, broke its leg and still mated the dog. Recycle, Adopt a Dog!!!
