I've seen extremists and snobs from both sides. I'd like to think a dog lover is a dog lover, regardless of where someone chooses to get their dog from. It's just stupid to me.

Even if they buy it from a shady man on a street corner..?

Or steal it?

I can see why people feel better about rescuing. I never wanted a pedigree.... I always wanted to rescue, and I still carry the guilt (no matter how much I love Fred and have enjoyed the community of GSP people I've found!!!).

I do think it is commendable to put a dogs needs over your own needs (ie, I want an XYZ bred dog for my wish to do XYZ with it, or because I prefer how it looks or whatever). Rescuing is saying I will choose that dog because it needs me (even if you may have a limited capacity to pick on your own needs too to lots of degree).

I do feel getting Fred was a selfish act for US. Not for him... I'd still like to rescue, particularly an old dog, FOR the dog. Just because it needs a person and a home.

I also see folks who are looking for a "pet" but choose a breeder seem to get more heat then those who are looking for a working or show dog, there is alot of (esp on facebook) who say "If you just want a pet then who dont rescue?"

They dont understand that some people want to know where their nextdog came from, who their parents were & how they were brought up. they want a pup who has been given a "head start" to a good life by a good, caring breeder.

The breeder I really want to go with's female didnt take this time around, so her next "try" will be January. It sucks to have to wait, but I would rather wait for a puppy I know I will be happy with, rather then "settle". because I think thats what keeps dogs out of shelters, people who don't "cave" to peer pressure & "settle" & persevere to get what they really want in a dog.

I have nothing to add to this thread, other than I keep on reading the title as 'Moral Superiority of Poodles...' as I scroll by it, hahaha. So Morally Superior.

Sorry, the law won't let me run elk with the dogs here (but its legal in TX). So no elk jerky for anyone (unless there is a zombie apocalypse, then the rules go out the window).

Oh wow. Just wow. Someone has very strong opinions.

Honestly, I couldn't care less whether someone got a dog from a rescue or from a breeder. Either way, you are providing the dog with a great home that it might not have otherwise. (Who knows...maybe a dog at a breeder would otherwise have ended up in a crummy home with no exercise? )
