Quotes From Real People
It makes me sad seeing real people suffering the consequences of purchasing from a less than reputable breeder. Regardless of initial money spent, they invest far more in the long run keeping their dogs alive - and in some instances have to euthanize due to Quality of Life. These people have regrets - and hurt - for being duped when purchasing their 'purebred' dog. But here's the thing - they're not registered - so they are not purebred. And Purebred doesn't guarantee Well-bred either.
