I was just at a show and I didn't see one dog on wire. They were in carriers or in pens on the grass. In GA they are inspected by the department of AG and by USDA.
FK is not licensed by the USDA at this time.
She might want to do that asap!
Thank God...there is nothing more insane then to make an animal live on wire. It is so inhumane it boggles the mind. It isn't good for anything, rodent to rabbit and up. EVen Birds suffer permenant foot damage from having perches that are the same size..there needs to be a variant. Toes should not have to "balance" like that to keep from falling through. The pain must be incredible. It wouldn't stop the feces or urine from building up on the wires either and adding to the infection.

I have a question for you FK, if you were so proud of those rabbit hutches you built for all your Golden pups why did you remove them from your forum? After all it made it so you didn't have to bend over to care for them. And so easy when the poop and pee just drop through the bottom.

Do you really think that people buying pure bred animals, who have an interest in a pure bred dogs, can find what they want in a shelter?
Um, yeah. Ever heard of pure breed rescue? Surely you don't think that only mixed breeds end up in shelters? Some of my best great danes were shelter dogs. You're barking up the wrong tree here, lady.

There is a perpetuated myth that we have a huge overpopulation problem in our shelters.
And I thought all those thousands of dogs getting gassed or needled yearly was true. Whew, now I can sleep at night knowing that it was all a big lie.

You're racking up quite the tally on ignorant comments. Going for a record?

so, just because my dogs live outside and never come inside the house i abuse and neglect my dogs? If i bred my dog and the puppies were raised in the garage where my dogs sleep i would be a puppy miller or a BYB? The number of dogs you have and where they are kept determines what kind of breeder you are?

Seriously, Nicole, get with the program. You mean you didn't know? :cool:
:yikes:

News to me.


*takes her edumacation with a grain of salt*

Then, so what I hear you sorta saying.. is I shouldn't have just donated to save a dog from being PTS because the fact that the rescue was saying there was an overpopulation problem was a lie? I mean, whew, I can sleep easy now and cancel payment on that donation.

Hello, left field.

I believe we're talking about mass producing of dogs and breeder ethics. Not about the merits of indoor vs. outdoor.

I'm tired. Someone else wanna answer this.

Again you are incorrect.
USDA is for people who sell whole sale. I do not. In the state of GA you are required to licensed by the *state* Ag department, if you manage a stud dog, if you breed a litter a year (even if that litter is only one puppy), if you groom or if you board.
And yes, I am licensed.

Really than what was that post by you on USAbreeders as fluff about USDA?
And you avoided my other questions on the pup pens didn't you?

Animal Rights groups routinely use false and unsubstantiated allegations of animal abuse or non-existent problems to raise funds, attract media attention, and bring supporters into the movement.

An example of this is the continuing campaign against breeding of dogs due to an "overpopulation crisis". The public is told repeatedly never buy animals from pet stores or breeders -- with millions of animals dying in shelters, there is no reason for any animal to be bred --don't breed, don't buy while shelter animals die.

The real truth about animal abandonment is that it has dramatically decreased since 1973 and only a small portion of the total owned animal population are abandoned and euthanized.


Year Total Pet Population # Euthanized in Shelters *** % of Pet Population
1973* 65 million 13.5 million 21%
1982* 92 million 8-10 million 9-11%
1992* 110 million 5-6 million 5%
2000* 120 million 4-6 million 3-5%
2001* 141 million 4.4 million 3.12%


*From HSUS State of the Animals 2001
**American Pet Products Manufacturers Assoc. National Pet Owners Survey & Animal People Shelter Survey
***Shelters include owner requested euthanasia in their statistics which is not a part of abandoned animals euthanized.

According to HSUS State of the Animals 2001, "There was, however, general consensus among most animal related organizations that the term pet overpopulation was not only difficult to define, but that it was also probably no longer an accurate catchphrase to describe the reasons for animals leaving their original homes, especially for dogs."

Animal rights groups choose to ignore facts for the purpose of framing an overpopulation issue to their advantage in the public eye in order to raise sympathy dollars and convince legislators that anti-breeding legislation is required. Eventually facts and truth become irrelevant in the discussion and increasingly difficult to present to counter the anti-breeding campaign.

ok i said my bit in the very beginning and decided that was it. until this was said. yoshi was going to be put down... why? because the shelter that had her was full and she had beenthere the max length of time she could be. but it wasn't just her. there was a bunch of dogs there. dogs that iknow for a fact would prob notget adopted. when i took my friend to the owasso pound. it was full and about half of those dogs were getting ready to get put down because they were full and they had been there longer than max time.

so don't you DARE say that bs. i may not work rescues like some workers or work with dogs other than mine and my friends. but still i do visit rescues/shelters more than enough to know it is not a myth and daily dogs are dieing because i have seen it for myself
