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.

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.

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.
