There is absolutely nothing wrong with buying from a responsible breeder. People need to realize that shelters/rescue isn't something that EVERYONE wants. Many people desire to know their dog's background completely, or they may want to show it.
And there is nothing wrong with shelters or rescues. I always appreciate anyone who adopts, or even just helps out a little with any type of rescue work. It's admirable to adopt, and to help in any way you can. It's just not the road for everyone.
Some people prefer purebreds, and they should not be put down for that, or for buying their purebred dog from a breeder. People who go out and buy designer dogs from breeders are often just buying into the breeder's promises about the "breed" and by how cute the puppies are (all puppies are cute, but they all grow up into something different!!). They need to be educated to not believe the whole "hybrid vigor" theory, and realize that the companion they seek can easily be found in a shelter (if they really do desire a certain mix, or otherwise) or a reputable breeder of purebreds who actually knows their breed, what they are doing, and where you know better what you're going to get.
