How many "mixed breed" people get euthanized because there is an overpopulation of them, or because no one wants them? Why do people compare dogs to people like this???jack dempsey said:in a word, yes!.... my real question is why is it Ok to mix breeds/races and sexes in people but not in Dogs?
shh, no one tell CC, I don't think she knows it!Leeann.Bella.Remy said:There's a big difference between abortion and euthanizing a live person. Some people can't seem to get this through their heads, so I'll caps lock it: "DOGS ARE NOT PEOPLE!!! PEOPLE ARE NOT DOGS!!!
somehow I think I like dogs much more than people, but hey thats just me.jack dempsey said:I agree that breeding should be left to professionals, but in the grand skeme of things it ain't that big a deal..Sorry
I was not comparing Dogs to people only that some People seem to value Dogs more than Humans, Which I think is mentally ill. They are Animals. Animals which get kill slaughter and put down everyday.. so what
I disagree that backyard breeding "it ain't that big a deal." No, I don't think it's AS big a deal as human suffering, but it's still a big deal. Animals deserve to be treated with respect as well. I would never say, "Well, that animal getting beaten by his owner down the street is no big deal because somewhere someone is beating his kids, and that's much worse." It all sucks.jack dempsey said:I agree that breeding should be left to professionals, but in the grand skeme of things it ain't that big a deal..Sorry

If a complete stranger ie you and m beloved dog where drowning and I only could save one of you, I would save you the Human. Yes even if it were a stranger or better yet my enemy. Would you do the same for me.. I think not.

Just because you treat your dogs well and provide a nice enviornment isn't a good reason to breed! I bet almost each and every one of us here treat our dogs well and provide them with a nice "enviornment". What would happen if we all decided to breed just so we could make a few extra bucks? Call me crazy but at least I don't need to use my dogs as a source of extra income!hortoristic said:You guys are crazy....We have 4 wonderful EBD...we love them to bits...
We are "backyard breeders" - and our pup's love us and we love them. They have pup's - we take EXCELLANT care of them - and oh my god- we are terrorist's - we make money...
You treat us as criminals yet you cannot really find a better environment (in our situation)...I think u should quit being so judgemental.
There are so many dogs out there in shelters already, that are pure bred like the dogs you are producing. Why add to the over population unless you are bettering the breed. If you health test and prove your dogs worthy of making pups, then I don't consider you a byb. But if you just breed pet dogs that have no health testing then you are just helping that many more dogs get put down in the sheltershortoristic said:Please explain why I'm so terrible that I take great care of my pets, who have pups, that I sell to others?
