I for one do not understand why the shelters are so strict. We tried to adopt and they would not allow us for two reasons. One, we don't have a fenced in yard and two, we have 3 children. This does not makes sense to me. I had owned Italian Greyhounds years ago, and used my breeder as a reference. This did not matter to them. Now this was all within the past two years.
My neighbor just adopted a 3 year old, purebred ABT. They do not have a fenced in yard and they have 3 children. I don't understand how they were able to adopt, we went to the same shelter a year ago.
As most of you say this is a teaching site and you are not here to judge people. Well if you all go back to my very first post about puggles barking. all I said was that was a little wrong not all puggles bark and most make not much noice at all I had also mentioned that I am a breeder of beagles and puggles. i could have keep this info to myself but why hide something that I am not ashamed of. Well most of you had nothing to say that was nice. I feel that you pick a few members and they are the only people that you feel are worth listening to. everyone else is trash that know nothing one of you even accused me of overbreedering which I took as a huge insult I would never cause stress to any of my pets. they are all very happy healthy animals. I do know of purebred breeders that will breed just to get a new show pups then sell there leftovers for $1500. to $2000 and turn around and say that was just to cover the cost. Whatever Did you ever stop to think why aren't all your dogs from the pound well the reason you wanted a choice so why shoud eveyone else have to go to a shelter to get there dog which is there for some reason. When you yourself own dogs that arn't all from the shelter.
None of you cared that in 8 years of breeding not one of my dogs has ended up in a shelter they all come back for a summer picnic. If you were at a picnic you would see how much my pups are loved and know why I have them. Can the rest of you breeders say that about your pups or as you have accused me once the money is in your hand that's were the contact ends.
You say that you don't judge peopl then why was I snubbed from my very first post?
You didn't say they ALL don't, you said they don't. And the way it was posted, came across as a salesmans pitch/bragging tone and quite honestly a bit off the wall. Sounded like something a looney would post completely out of the blue like that.
You may not have any "fans" because your personality is a bit strong and you rub people the wrong way, ever think of that? Everything you post, seems to be looking for an argument. They do say, there is a common factor in all broken relationships that may have occurred in your life, you.
Personally, I give everyone on this site respect, until they prove they are wasting my time and undeserving. Then i do my best to just avoid them.
