Default I was told off for rescuing a Mexi-dog

Apparently I should not rescue from Mexico because so many here need homes...

I've been there. I received a lot of crap from people when I got Cricket because so many dogs in America need homes too. It bothered me at first but I eventually learned to just let it roll off my shoulders.

Aw, sorry you had to go thru that Laura. I get told off for sending dogs into the states and canada from Mexico. You just have to let it slide off your back. The truth of the matter is there are homeless dogs everywhere, and in Mexico very few of them are given the mercy of a quick death via euthanasia. American and Canadian dogs have it pretty **** good in comparison.

I just was shocked, I mean I get lots of Dogs need homes, and I was considering rescuing an ACD if I could find one.. But for some reason the second I saw her picture I was done for.... That's never happened to me before! And frankly it's my money, my home and soon to be my dog...

I just did not expect that level of "How could you?" from someone I consider a friend and pet lover :-(

i reccommend pepperspray & a kick to the testicles or ovaries. clearly these people are biggoted & insane, their very presence puts your life at risk. you must defend yourself.

A dog that needs a home is a dog that needs a home. Never really understood the "you have to take THIS dog not THAT one" mentality. They both need homes, period. Doesn't matter if they are purebred, crossbred, puppy, senior, from Memphis, Montana, or Mexico. The dog needs a home. What's the problem?

You can't fix stupid. -shrug-

Pft what difference does it make, either way you're giving a dog a home that didn't have one otherwise!

Yeesh. People.
