I had someone friend request me (keep in mind, my facebook is Brigadoon Border Collies, very clearly a breeder) and then proceed to post ON MY WALL things like that. She got the boot right away.
Here is a summary on our breeding costs and what we've made back:

1st litter: Faith had to have an emergency c-section, +ultrasounds, x-rays, health testing and stud fee, got eclampsia after the puppies were 2 or so weeks, so we spent approximately $3,700. 5 puppies born, 1 died, 1 kept, so sold 3 puppies for around $800. Total: -$1,300.

2nd litter: Planned c-section at recommendation of a repro vet, +ultrasound, x-rays, and stud fees. Spent around $3,000. 5 puppies born, two kept, so three sold for around $800. Total: -$600.

3rd litter: Sadie's first litter, stud fees, ultrasound, x-rays, health testing, approximately $1,200. 3 puppies born, sold for around $800. Total: +$1,200. (yay)

Tried to breed Sadie twice, no success. -$750 (stud fee + medical expenses)

4th litter: Sadie's second litter. Imported semen from England, surgical implant, +blood test to determine pregnancy, x-rays, and emergency vet visit after she had been in labor for 11 hours with no puppies: Approximately $4,000 spent. 2 puppies born. Kept one puppy, sold the other for $1,000 (higher price because the litter was from imported semen and was so expensive to breed). Total: -$3,000.

Fiona bred, didn't take. -$750.

So, lets add that up.

-$1,300
-$600
+ $1,200
-$750
-$3,000
-$750

Grand total: -$5,200.

Let me go quit my day job and live off of my dogs!

I didn't realize there was an "anti-rescue" group. So they think....rescues should be shut down?

I've never heard anyone say "Oh my gosh, you got your dog from RESCUE?!" lol

No one said otherwise

I don't think anyone on this thread is anti-rescue. Heck a fair number of us, including the OP if I understand correctly, have rescue dogs.

I have issues with bad rescues and bad breeders. I am in full support of good rescues and good breeders. I don't see those positions as being in any way contradictory.

Oh all the time.

"Oh... you're dog is a RESCUE? Well...uhh.... how...nice...." *suddenly moves away and calls dog from playing with rescued dog, cause its contagious ya know*

"You got your dog from a rescue? So it's life is worth what....$50?"

"I can't believe you went to a rescue. They're just in it for the money."

"Do you ever think you'll get a real dog?"

Plus many pictures that I've seen just like those ones, basically saying that a rescue dog just could never be as good as a breeder dog.

Wow.... I know what you mean, Jess. Didn't think of that. I've come across those snobby people, too.


There is a couple that comes to the dog park and they asked me what Baloo was. I said "Your guess is as good as mine" and they started laughing. I assumed they thought what I said was funny, until they went on to say that rescue dogs aren't as pure or good as breeder dogs and that it was sad for poor Baloo that I didn't even know what he was. Uh... What? I'm pretty sure my dog doesn't give two shits what he is.

I never said that....?

The OP said (or atleast acted) they were surprised there was this "group". It was more of "why be surprised? There's a group supporting the other side..." Meh.
