I think he was responding to my post about having a smaller dog - nothing against big breeds.

Where do you get your information stating purebred dogs are inbred?


How do you think they make purebreds.You have to be more careful .The demand is so high many are not .So far every purebred ive met has an issue with that breed .Cherry eyes jump out at me to start.

We all know about backyard breeders and puppy mills. Did you read the article you posted? It talks about all types of breeders - good and bad - and if you're willing to shell out the bucks for a purebred, you've done your homework and narrowed it down to a reputable breeder.

I've had purebreds from reputable breeders plus a couple that were given to me because the original purchaser didn't have time for them as well as the Heinz 57 variety which were found as strays or gotten from the pound ... wasn't a damn thing wrong with any of them. Only difference - the Heinz 57 variety didn't come with papers.

Hinze 57 usually are better dogs with less medical problems than pure breds.

The aboriginal peoples had dogs. They kept them mostly for two reasons: 1 - to keep the camp clean 2 - as an emergency food source. I'm a dog person but dogs are a utility animal, not children, as some people treat them. I hear they taste great with teriyaki sauce.

Cats are arrogant and taste like chicken.

Are you talking about the 4 legged or 2 legged variety?
I am aware that many people are trying to mimic royalty with their little punter dogs. But if they fell on hard times, they would only get one meal out of Fifi.

to each his own....large, small, dogs, cats,birds.....doesn't matter and every person has their preferences...and their ways...and they, just the same as you, have that right. Get over it already and find some bigger issues to b***ch about.

I don't even have to read the posts in this thread.

No dog is "crazy". They are what the human makes them. The most aggresive dog out there can be changed. They are very simple minded and they live in the moment. You simply need to take them out of their agressive element and work with them to show them that there are humans that they can trust. Some cases take longer than others, but every dog can be made to be trusting and loving, despite their past.

Your post has nothing to do with the topic - dressing up little dogs/getting dogs from pounds doesn't make bad dogs.

I feel a spiritual connection to animals as well .You can love them without reducing their dignity.
