I'm not saying dogs are perfect, mine puked all over the floor the other day, but I'm saying it's cruel when people buy dogs from breeders when there're dogs and cats being put to sleep everyday, thousands of them. Because they're dirty, because they're too busy, because they just don't like it anymore. You made a commitment. If you can't go through with it, at least try and find them a better home. Don't put them in a shelter, don't set them free, don't abandon them. If you do, you're worse than an animal, because a dog would never do the same to you. Despite dogs' flaws, like any animal, they're loyal and loving if raised right.
