Still, it hurts, I know. Hugs, and then forget them.
I feel the same way

Really? Their logic is flawless. But, why aren't they personally rushing out to adopt the dog or puppy, then? Damned dog-hating puppy killers.

As above, the logic of some of these "rescue nazis" as I refer to this particular brand of rescue advocate is a bit flawed. I hear the "if everyone stopped breeding for 10 years" thing all the time, but usually in the context of, "if everyone stopped breeding for 10 years, it would totally solve the pet overpopulation problem!" This particular person is technically correct. There would still be so many dogs needing homes, because even if everyone magically stopped intentionally breeding their dogs, we'd still have the strays and feral dogs indiscriminately humping away, and we'd still have the "oopsie, Flopsydoodles got out and visited the neighbor's boy dog because they just love love love each other so much, hearts and thparkles!" people. Unfortunately, their logic doesn't actually extend that far. Oh, and we'd have no breeds anymore, but that's no big deal because nobody really "needs" to be able to predict what size or temperament their dog is likely to be, right?

Just pat the idiot on the head and delete them. Alternately, play dead. Maybe they'll just sniff you, lose interest and walk away. I hear that works sometimes.

To be fair, you can at some shelters. My shelter always has more puppies than adults

But I think there is absolutely nothing wrong with responsible breeders, and when I get my GSD, he will be from one. But I also plan on fostering, so maybe the militant rescue folk won't condemn me TOO much lol.

In my mind, as long as you health test and make sure nothing you produce ever ends up in a shelter, you are not hurting anything.

Been there and it sucks - people are NUTS.

The sad thing is that fostering or adopting won't save you from the rescue nazi's wrath against breeders and dogs purchased from breeders. It's ridiculous.
