I volunteer at a no kill shelter... We turn down a lot of pit bulls because we know they have a less chance of being adopted. I notice at my shelter we still have quite a few pit bulls, and other common breeds are chihuahuas, daschunds & shih-tzus. We get some really beautiful dogs- once had a purebred English bulldog. She was a bute. Thank god we don't adopt out any animal until we have it spayed/neutered.

My dad's dog had babies, was dumped with them at the SPCA, then they were taken away and adopted out, and she was spayed. <--- example of a previous owner who didn't spay.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

Aww :( It is so pointless when shelters don't spay. That is so STUPID.
My dad back yard bred one litter (no I'm not proud, to be honest I find it EMBARESSING.) he adopted a staffy JUST to breed her. Then after the pups got homes he gave her away.

:'( as you probably can guess I don't get along with mydad too well.

I've had a lot of people ask me if I regret spaying my dog because she has a great temperament and whatnot, and my answer is always NO. I would much rather go get another pit from a shelter and give it a home There are way to many pits out there to breed them at home.

"Awww he is so cute, are you going to breed him?" Yes I was asked that.

people don't understand that purebred doesn't mean well bred. Actually most people dont know there's "well bred" and "poorly bred" all they see is "bred" -_-

Exactly, there are a lot of mutts who are much better dogs genetically than pure breds due to all the line breeding. Anyone who has ever owned a line bred German Shepherd can attest to the issues that can arise.

Hip dysplasia is one of the most common =D Ear infections for bassests and beagles.
