American water spaniel: A variety of problems have cropped up from in the breed including cardiac abnormalities, cancer, hip dysplasia, diabetes, allergies, hypothyroidism, follicular dystrophy, epilepsy, and cataracts.

And no, I'm not lucky I got the dog I wanted. I got that because of research and because I met the parents, saw the temperment. Also, I'm not going to start the nature vs. nurture debate right now. I think anybody on here that owns a pit bull, and has fought this fight for years will agree, that you get out of a dog, what you put into it (yes, with a few exceptions).

Please don't start up this crap again.

This is a forum, where people express their opinion.
I'm not saying the dog itself is making me want to puke just their name/owners/breeders/people who think they are breeds. NOT the dog itself.
I didn't start it up. I posted my opinion, then you yelled at me. Thus you started the 'argument' or whatever. *rolls eyes*

Jesus Christ! I DO NOT HATE MUTTS! I hate the morons who breed them, sell them, own them [as in they go around saying it's a maltipoo, and it's a breed, etc]. Etc.

Adopt them, fine. Own them, fine. But when people go around breeding them, calling them breeds, or even by their puppymill name THEN it gets to me.
For the last time: I DO NOT HATE THE DOG, OR MIXIES!

That's probably why so many dogs never get adopted out. Too many people are too focused on what they want, and not willing to make a few concessions to save a shelter dog. Sad!

You don't have to throw a whole life away just because they are a little banged up a bit. People don't like a dog with history. Most people want a dog with no track record/clean slate/puppy.

I'd rather save a dog and fix the problem. I'd rather do that then make a mistake and have to admit that I started with a clean slate and I screwed up, which is what happens with most people and most puppies.

Well its good there are people like you around then, same as people that adopt children with special needs and unwanted children, you have to be a special kind of person to take on someone elses baggage.

You are very right BD. If people are so dead set on getting a mixed breed puppy not from a shelter, how about get on of the free to good home puppies in the paper? Or the ones that are like $50? Our Chow/Lab Precious was free and one of the best dogs I know. Wait, she isn't a "mix"... She is a Chab. LOL
