The perfect pet is a different answer for everyone. We do not support the Adopt Don’t Shop mantra, because it is used by Animal Rights fanatic groups, like PETA, who seek to end all animal ownership. Unless given away for free, every time money is exchanged for an animal, it is a purchase, which gives ownership rights to the purchaser, and protections under the law for the property (animal) purchased. We support breeding, and yes, the placement is selling, of responsibly and purposefully bred dogs.
We believe so much in rescue that we founded one.
The words and phrases we use matter, in this sound byte, short attention span world we have today. A good breeder is not the same as a puppy mill, and lumping them together is not right. The slogans we choose to use can be construed more than one way.
