Many breeders the good ones sit and say they are breeding for the good of their breed, to better their breed. I know many people that HATE all breeders and i see why too. With every litter we breed we are taking x amount of homes from the dogs sat in shelters. My litter took 9 potential homes away from dogs in shelters. I am fully aware of it and its a sad sorry world. As breeders if you stood and counted every puppy you had brought into the world and then count how many dogs we could of saved from shelters it breaks your heart. Sadly this world is not a nice place and as breeders we do all we can when we breed sadly sometimes we get it wrong no one is perfect. I have rescued in my lifetime over a good 20 animals not all dogs. it doesn't justify the 9 i brought into the word becasue we breed the ansimals faster than people take them out of shelters. I will say I bred my dalmatian, I did get some of it horribly wrong and i did take 9 homes away from animals in shelters. But i hold my chin up high with the fact i did my best by those animals in my care and the ones i brought into this world some do not agree, but only ONE person will ever know just how much they do for the animals in their care and how much they did for them. That person is the breeder. No breeder can hold their head to high and be to rightous because with every animal you bring into the world sadly another animal is left in shelters or in the worse homes possible. This isn't here to attack anyone and its not here for you to attack me. this is an opinion i would like to share and get other peoples views on. We breed for one reason or another but in the same respect we are adding to the misery of other animals. I'm not perfect, but i try my best and do my best for every animal i come into contact with.
